I'm at the point where I can pee in a lot of cubicles just not one where there are only two stalls because I feel the person is totally focuses on me, is there anything I could do to gradually get me used to it so I can pee? Also I find it a lot harder to pee when I'm bursting to when I just mildly need it, I find that I have to go a much "safer" bathroom than I usually would, the problem with this is there isn't always one available and so the time that I really need to go I can't, so I have to make sure I pee several times so it doesn't build up. Does anyone know how to get past this problem and should I fluid load everytime I go out so I get used to really needing it because when I do gradual exposure in public bathrooms I just go when I mildly need it I never fluid load, sois fluid loading critical to recovery? Thanks, David
