Curiosiity's got my goat today.
For as long as I can remember, I've always had a bit of a struggle 'psyching up' or 'unlocking' to pee. I've always been a 'go when you feel the urge' and not worry about when or how often type for the other.
My steel bladder can usually go for 6-8 hours normally, though that is less than my personal record.
This is a little opposite of diaper usage, which is no worries, no psyching, etc.
I've also usually avoided 'non-familiar' bathrooms unless of a medium-high to dire need is present. Partly due to the 'Gas-Station-Bathroom Steriotype'.
I've also been reading on the IC section that some are curious as to weather holding out too long can weaken things and cause IC.
Incidentally, I've found that when I'm padded, and in private, that peeing is a
*LOT* more spontaneous, and I've had a couple of experiences when I was relatively recently re-accquainting myself and diapers where I *ALMOST* didn't notice I was peeing. I still won't pee in public (around others), even though I might be getting the 'extremely full signal'.
I do occasionaly wear under clothing in public places, and have *rarely* wet in public places while alone.
So, I'm wondering, does anyone else feel this way?
I was debating as to whether this is more of an 'IC' topic or not, but it's not
'IC' unles NOT being able to go at any time when needed is also considered 'IC'
1.) anyone here 'shy' around bathrooms
(grown-up version of potty phobia?)
2.) anyone gotten IC as a result of being 'shy' or unable to use public restrooms over time?
3.) anyone have insight into a similar situation?
