After rereading this thread, I had a thought (was a little painful since I don't have too many of 'em!). I used to work at a psychiatric residential treatment center for teens, and in order to use the bathroom, I had to have someone cover for me. Working the day shift, that wasn't always feasbile, all the clients being awake and doing stuff. Plus the staff restroom was attached to the very small staff office, and noises traveled well, quite embarassing for me. But I found that switching to the graveyard shift, as well as letting my co-workers and bosses know what was up helped out quite a bit. Don't know if this applies, but I had to get the thought out before it caused me any more pain.
