Also known as paruresis, this is where people find it impossible to pee in front of other people. They will experience that feeling which is a deep seated fear that may be caused by different things. The shy bladder will hound you for days unless you can get over that.
There are ways that can help you get over that irrational fear and worry which makes you unable to pee while there are people around you. This will help you get the fear out and the guides that I have provided are surefire ways of getting through the whole process.
The Lone Ranger Technique
When you are afraid to pee while people are around, you will most likely be suffering from something that originates in your brain meaning that the fear of the people can be manipulated to get you through the processes.
So, what you do is imagine that there is no one around. Don’t look at anyone. Find something and fixate on it, it could be something in your head or something that you can see. Either way, it will be something that can take away the fact that you are in company.
Just be natural and pee, don’t think about it, just release that grip and there you go, we have splashdown.
Listen To Something
Overcoming this will require you to have distractions. The best distractions that you can have are the ones that you create yourself. Try plugging in your earphones and listening to some loud band blaring into your head. Just relax and concentrate on the nose.
That way, you won’t be able to hear anyone’s pee or even your own making it a silent occasion where the only thing you can feel is relief and Metallica shouting something in your ears.
Do Not Say Anything
When you are peeing and there is someone there next to you, do not say anything. That will just make it worse. Even a casual hi can be very awkward resulting in a sudden stop and you will be left there stranded with your pee and nothing to say about it.
Don’t look at the other man’s business or even in his face. That will just throw you off your game.
You can plan the excursion to be happening when you are alone and there is no one there to see you and this won’t be hard. There are those times you know when there are people in the bathroom every time. There are the times when it’s all yours. You will time this to coincide with the times that you go.
What You Need To Know
Paruresis is not a condition of the urinary tract, bladder or kidneys. It stems from the mind and the only way that you can win is by getting those negative thoughts out until gradually, you cannot feel them anymore. It takes time but it can be done.
