I quite often forget that someone is close by when I go and have noticed that many men use cubicles with the door open.
A technique I use is this:
If there is one man on my right when I use a urinal, I turn slightly to the left so he is over my shoulder and not across. If there is one man on my left when I use a urinal, I turn slightly to the right so he is over my other shoulder. If someone is across my left and right or next to me I stand further into the bowl.
Once I do this I can concentrate on what I am doing just like a non-paruresis sufferer can because like we learnt in the workshop, "a person can only pay attention to themselves".
I am off to the shop shortly as I have to buy more "Excellent work", "Terrific job", "Well done" stickers today for my diary which I have filled in every single day.
They do 2 sheets for £1 in Poundland and are really positive to look at.
