I've had Paruresis most of my adult life.I have now just turned 50 this year and it's worst than ever. I think it has a lot to do with stress, the more I try to pee, the longer it takes. Some times it's taken over ten hours to pass water.
Today, 20 Sept, my wife and I were suppose to be to London for a day out but, soon after I was told about this back in May, the stress started. A week or so ago, the long hours waiting to go, began.
Now I'm sat at home while my wife has gone out without me. I am now at my wits end. Waiting to find out if I can get a course of CBT.
