I knew by then of course that there were many other sufferers, but I have always been too ashamed to speak about my condition.
I always use a cubicle to urinate, preferring as secluded a facility as possible, preferably with a full length solid door. Travel is almost impossible, because of the fear that I will be unable to find any suitable toilets en route or at my destination. What I need to know, obviously, is where to go (in both senses).
Last year, an idea occurred to me. What if sufferers around the country were to pool their knowledge and review which toilets they considered "safe" in their own local area? Could we build a map of the country as a free website which anyone could consult, enabling some peace of mind when travelling? It`s possible that such a resource already exists, and I have simply not encountered it (in which case, please tell me where it is!). If not, could we organise one?
I know it would be of benefit to me. I`d like to know if other people with paruresis think this is a good idea, and whether anyone would be willing to contribute.
