I was very interested to read your post as I am the same age as you and have also suffered with this problem since I was a teenager. I have learnt to manage some situations better than others over the years, but it was only within the past year that I discovered I was not alone with this problem, and it is good to be able to share on this board.
Does anyone know if paruresis is hereditary? I often wonder about this.
