I found myself unexpectedly having to be out in a public place for 6 hours the other day. After a couple of hours I felt a medium urge to use the restroom. I tried despite feeling uneasy but just couldn't get started. After 20 minutes I left feeling anxious frustrated and desperately uncomfortable with a full bladder. As I can only pee silently I brought some pads and tried again using a different facility. After 10 minutes I managed to get stared and managed to partially empty my bladder. Has anybody else experienced this
