Is paruresis (shy bladder syndrome) curable?

"Practice makes perfect"

2
How often do we hear that phrase?

UKPT reviews – fake or genuine feedback?

4
I recently listened to a podcast, which discussed how trustworthy, or not, online reviews are. According to several consumer organisations, up to 1 in 3 may be fake.

I would never have believed it!

paruresis-success-stories
