Depends on the extent of my flare, but when flaring full fledged, I can barely make it afew minutes.....and yes, as I get closer, it gets worse! There are times I run all the way there, and as I'm pulling stuff down its making its appearance....Thank God the seat is already down!! The worst is being stuck in traffic!!! That darn red light seems to take forever, and if youre in a residential area, really in trouble!! There have been times I can hardly concentrate on traffic, its amazing I haven't got into an accident. It so sucks sitting in your car seat, cramping up, trying to clench things to keep it in, sweating, fidgeting, swearing, praying, and then you finally find the closest public restroom to run into, only to actually make it in time only half the time. Then how do you clean yourself up in public???? It sooooooo sucks!!! **sigh*** (all bad memories here!!)
