Do You Have “Shy Bladder” or “Shy Bowel” Syndrome?
While it’s not very common — it’s not UN common: some people (from small children to seniors) have a very difficult time urinating or pooping when there are others around, i.e. in a public restroom or away from home.
For urinary (peeing) challenges it’s called “Paruresis.”
For bowel movements it’s called “Parcopresis.”
A shy bladder or bowel can change your quality of life.
It can cause problems with medical testing or procedures because it’s very difficult to obtain a urine specimen. There may also be work issues if a urine test is needed for drug testing.
For both shy bladders and shy bowels, traveling on plane rides or using a restroom in a busy place like an airport can be a very difficult situation, as can everyday social situations.
Fear of peeing and pooping can affect individuals of all ages, from pre-schoolers through senior citizens. It may affect your social life and even health as some with these conditions limit essential food and drink to e to limit the number of times they need to visit the bathroom when away from home.
These are actual conditions, not a “fallacy” or something “made-up.”
If you or a loved one, child or grandchild are struggling with this, or avoiding going anywhere because of this, there’s lots of information to help!
