I was like you Penny and discovered this site by accident after years of living with difficulties. Some of my behaviour over the years became a bit bizarre at times (too bizarre to be able to admit to yet, even on here!) but if you read my story it was a totally unexpected breakthrough on holiday in Nepal a few years ago which has enabled me to move on somewhat. I still sometimes have difficulties, especially in social situations, but I attribute that to not being a very confident person and have learned ways of dealing with it. Although I have treated my bladder very badly over the years!
