Although most sufferers report that they developed the condition in their teenage years, it can appear at age. Paruresis can be mild, moderate or severe. In mild cases, paruresis is an occasional happening – a form of performance anxiety. Severe cases of this disorder can have highly restricting effects on a person’s life. Severe sufferers may not be willing to travel far from their home. Others are unable to urinate even in their own home if someone else can be heard to be there.
As upsetting and restrictive as Shy Bladder can be, it really is just another form of social anxiety – the fear of being harshly judged by other people. It is also likely that the sufferer will also have social anxiety in other, more general areas of their life too. After all, if you fear what others are thinking about you with regard to your toilet habits, it’s also very likely you will fear others judgement about you in other situations.
I feel like a different person. I cannot believe how happy and calm I am as a person now. Although I had started Thrive specifically to target Shy Bladder, after completing the book my self esteem & confidence had increased enormously. It made me realise that all my specific anxieties (e.g. shy bladder) were a result of my low self esteem and social anxiety. This alone was a fantastic realisation as it gave me the control – if I am creating the problems, I can also stop them. This was the liberating moment for me.
This program will help you overcome a specific phobia but it will also give you so much more. But Thrive is different, once I’d understood the concept and ideas of this program it was a light-bulb moment – my path to getting rid of the anxiety was suddenly very clear and very simple. I just wish I’d found Thrive sooner!

What are the symptoms of shy bladder?
• Being afraid or unable to urinate when others are nearby.
• Sufferers worry that someone might knock on the toilet door, or see or hear them urinating, or be waiting patiently outside.
• It usually occurs when using public toilet facilities, including those on trains, buses, boats and planes.
• Embarrassment about peeing can occur when asked to produce a specimen for a medical examination.
• The condition can also occur at home when there are other people in the house, irrespective of whether or not they are in the bathroom.
• The difficulty disappears if sufferers are certain that no one is around or likely to arrive.
