see a doctor. It is abnormal to have diarrhea for such a long time. It could be serious GI infection or even ulcerative colitis.

Liquid stools are not normal when lasting for that long unless your diet is only liquid. Infection and malabsorption need to be r/o. I recommend that you get some stool studies first and check with a physician for evaluation. Are you loosing weight? Are the liquid stool greasy? Are there un digested food particles present? Do you have abdominal pain and if so how it is related to bowel movements?
