Yep .. I've had "stage fright" for years. Even as a young girl, I would not use the bathrooms at school or public facilities. I can go all day without having to use the washroom. It's like I trained my bladder to hold on. It's probably why I bloat, too. It is weird how our minds can take over. I think as the years went on, it became a control issue for me. Why not.... I have everything else to go along with it. But it's not hard at all for me to not void for 12 hours or more.
So see, you're not a freak .. I am .. **** .. I do this even in my own home ! where I can go whenever I want. I like the idea of plugging my ears ... that was a great tip.
We're all pretty much alike in so many ways. That's why I love this place .. I'm not alone, for the first time in my life.
