Weird thing is that I was used to certain toilets that were quite busy, but after the beginners' workshop I was suddenly unable to go in those. I guess the idea of "severe sufferer" stuck in my mind. (That's if you're even unable to go with visitors in your own home.)
My bathroom is close to my livingroom, so I rarely succeed in peeing with visitors there.
Also, if friends know about my problem, this is not always helpful, because sometimes I feel they might be thinking; oh, she's having a problem.
Male friends have proven more understanding than female friends have, which is strange, but I guess they can imagine what it's like due to the urinals they use.
Theaters can be quite busy. I went to the cinema aa little while ago and was happy that I performed before the movie, but after it finished everyone needed to go and that was too much for me.
Sometimes I feel really hopeless and would like to get to know more women who understand what this is like. It has influenced my life in so may ways...it's a shame really.
Did it start when you were young? And how did your family react, if you don't mind me asking?
Mine actually made fun of the problem and I didn't do much about it till much much later.
Nice to hear from you,
