I definitely need to try to adjust my outlook on this to like you said, and just try to look at everything neutrally, as well as the positive aspects of this. If nothing else it will definitely give me the chance to continuing my exposure in what is really new surroundings. I mean I'm obviously going to use a cubicle and I know that people pay very little attention to these things.
The problem in my own mind really is the time constraints on when I can actually use the bathroom is the main issue for me really. More the issue of observing a class and having a high level of urgency, but knowing that I can't exactly just walk out. Or maybe that is all right? I'm not quite sure.
Either way, considering that the staff toilets will likely be one of the standard sort of smallish-quietish bathrooms with the occasional person, I doubt I'd have a problem under any normal circumstances. The only counter thought is that I'd have mildly elevated anxiety levels just due to the fact that it is new surroundings and just overall unknown I guess.
What I probably need to do I just reassure myself that some anxiety regarding a new place or job is a completely natural thing and that as far as my hierarchy goes, I should be perfectly fine to urinate. But more importantly to not worry about if I misfire. It is probably also best for me to avoid coffee for the first few days to reduce that background anxiety.
Any further input would be great,
