Recently I have been working on my emotional fear and anxiety in other areas of my life. As a result I have found it easier to get my flow started. The other day after two hours driving and despite my best efforts to adjust fluid intake before leaving I had a very high urge and managed to go immediately I entered a toilet at the motorway services. Previously it would have taken me a lot longer to go if at all. I would have ended up after a lot of trying, very anxious, in pain and having to use pads or a catheter as a last resort.
