Hi louise im older than you but i had this problem at your age and i found it hard going to clubs concerts etc I found this site 1 year ago and it has helpped me so much. what i did was go to my doctors with one of the leaflets that Andrew from this site sent me ( im sure he would send you one if you emailed him) your doctor could then read it and he would understand the condition alot better as alot of doctors have never heard of this condition. my doctor sent me to see a nurse at the local hospital she showed me how to self cathereterize the catheters are only the size of a lipstick and very easy to use. This helpped me to get out of the house without the worry of needing the loo and not being able to go. now most of the time because the pressure of not being able to go is off me i can mostly go with out using the catheters which is amazing. i have just come back from a ski ing holiday in france and only had to use them a few times . so why dont you try going to the doctors with one of these leaflets and get some help sooner rather than later i know i wish i had got this sorted many yaers ago good luck michelle
