I live in a student dorm.  The building isn't that old but everything is broken from the water to the heat.  I really have to go to the bathroom but there is no water to flush, and I already went once in the toilet.  If I keep going I am going to clog it.  Please tell me this has happened to someone else before.

It's a CD nightmare. Oh, no! Can you drive to a fast food place maybe? Borrow their bathroom?

Go to any foodservice dining area.
Try another residential area if you have access.
The library...

... and remember that you have special needs, just like a person with a more visible disability. You *need* a working toilet, so if your current dorm can't give you that, I feel that you have a right to be temporarily moved to a room that does.

It is not realistic to expect you to hike across campus every few minutes if you have bad d!

Also, if you can get a bucket of water somewhere you should be able to pour the water into the toilet to flush it. I guess you could go in one of the other toilets or if worst comes to worse you could go in a trash can and then throw it out in the dumpster. I would try to stay in another dorm until this is worked out.

Hey you got to go, you got to go. I would tell whoever is in charge that you have disablity that you have to have a working bathroom.

student services (not sure what your school may call it) will usually bend over backwards to help students. You just gotta ask. (at my school it was in the same building as financial aid). Just a thought.

Hope something works out for you.

This happened to me once visiting family. The well broke and no water for nearly 24 hours! I used the trash bag option. Good luck!
