Pee Shy (Why Not)
Okay, I’ve never talked about this, but REALMINDED seems to be breaking down some stigmas, so I wanted to share this one. I’m a guy and I’ve decided not to share my name just because I don’t think I’m that comfortable with this yet, but I struggle with pee shyness or a shy bladder. I don’t know if it’s because of my anxiety or social anxiety or what, but it is honestly pretty brutal to pee in public places around lots of people. I don’t know when this started, but I just want to try and normalize it a bit. Am I working on it - yes. But it’s not easy. Like imagine always having to pee, but needing to find some privacy. Anyways, REALMINDED has given me a platform to write this down and it’s actually quite therapeutic. I know many other people have this and are just like me and most likely don’t talk about it, try and hide it, and wish it wasn’t the case. But I’m finally at the point where I can accept it and recognize that yes, it sucks, but it’s something that I am working on and that it’s okay. Thank you realminded for letting people like me share something that scares me and gives me anxiety with other people.
