    I read that 7 percent of the population has it and so do I. And it sucks.

    I cannot pee in a public bathroom urinal in front of everyone. I have to go into a stall and then I can pee.

    I cannot pee in a strange home or a bathroom with the window open, and I can't pee if somone or a group of people stand outside talking. It sucks.

    What I do to pee is I cover my ears and block out the noise, I mumble to myself words of encouragement, lol, sounds stupid but it works sometimes, and or I count down to 1. Another stupid sounding method, but it works sometimes as well.

    Anyone else has this?

    I used too, but I have gotten over my shy bladder. However, I still have a shy colon...

    I've got that same problem, I can't piss if I think there's an audience.

    Bizarre but effective solution: recite prime numbers in your head (1,2,3,5,7,11,13, etc.). For some reason, certain numbers seem neurologically connected to the bladder. Try it, it works.
