I was wondering how you were doing now and if you'd ever considered talking openly with your brother about how the visits make you feel and how your paruresis affects you?
I know it's difficult; my family seems to be less understanding than average people seem to be, but I guess they feel guilty, because they didn't address the issue when it started during my childhood and even bullied me about it.
Anyway, don't feel bad about using catheters; I don't like them either, but sometimes I just have to.
Does it cause you pain to use them? Unfortunately in my case they do?
