Just tonight I went into a handicap stall that said, reserved for disabled people, so not use if other stalls are available. Well, I'll tell you, go on prednisone, gain 70 lbs and you won't be able to fit in those tiny stalls. I would say that I was too big to wipe you know where because of the pred weight gain and that was 30 lbs ago. I am also currently filing under ADA because my boss doesn't think I am disabled, so I have to prove it. I invited her into the restroom with me, but she declined. She also was prompt in telling me that she had her cancer (chemo) treatments during summer break. I told her that I didn't have that option and that I was receiving treatment every six weeks due to my chronic illness. I am so tired of having to prove to crazies that I am sick. I guess gaining 70 lbs in 4 months didn't prove a thing. AAAAHHHHHH
Kgirlie - PS I will continue to use any stall I want, single, disabled, or family so HAHA and if I get questioned I will be happy to show off a hemmoroid (sp wrong)
I totally know what you are going through with those tiny stalls! I gained weight due to a bipolar med I was on and I know exactly what you mean. First of all you get in the stall and you're right in front of the toliet. You turn around to close the door and you're barely able to get it closed because it has to swing past you. Then if you are able to get it closed and use the restroom you have to somehow manage to wipe. It's ridiculous. I try to always use the handicap stall because of this. Obviously I'd feel bad if I was in there and someone in a wheelchair came in, but what am I supposed to do? My boyfriend's parents have 2 bathrooms...one upstairs and one downstairs. When we visit sometimes I can't make it upstairs to go to the bathroom and their downstairs bathroom is just as tiny as a public restroom stall. It's embarrassing to say I can't fit in there...I mean I fit I just can't wipe. Obviously I do my best, but I try to make it upstairs as much as possible. While I feel bad you and I'm sure others have to go through that too it makes me feel a little better to know I'm not alone.
