Thanks Andrew, you are absolutely right. I do tend to be hard on myself & over think especially if I have a high urge & can't get started, the more I try & worse it gets. I'm trying not to be so hard on myself & relax. I've made a lot of progress but need to accept that there will be times when I'm over sensitive & have to resort to using a catheter. I find the time it affects me most is at work when the toilets are busy and time is limited. The other temptation I have to resist is reducing fluids to avoid having a high urge.
