I think i would see it as progress for me i was out, had a medium urge not surprising as I'm trying not to reduce fluids & avoid using toilets & had drank approximately a litre of water. I tried to use a public facility but as usual had a few goes over 45 mins & was unable to get started. I returned to the car by which time i felt an overwhelming urge & was unable to keep still standing or sitting & felt pain in the bladder. Fortunatly i had resorted to pads & I just relaxed. It felt very strange & i was afraid of totally soaking myself, I tried to stop which took time, but what a relief! Didn't completely empty my bladder but enough to feel comfortable.
