Tell that to the academic school staff Hitler’s; those fuckers will hold anything hostage, even if it’s at the cost of your own life! Equip those overpriced babysitters in their class with a gun like most NRA gun nuts want, and watch your bladder truly splatter with a single bullet piss and all.

Thank you for making me feel terrible about being too lazy to get up out of bed. :/

The inability to urinate! Wow I thought it would cause the opposite and cause someone to urinate when they're not ready.

My friend and I always used to go to the washroom together at school, cuz there was always a long line in front of the bathroom. So I used to hold the P, while he used to hold the Q. Get it ?

When I was a kid I was scared of locking the door on the toilet and never went for the whole schoolday and now when I'm at school I don't either not because I'm scared but because I don't feel the need to pee and I have school for 6 hours is that dangerous
There are guests outside and I really can't go but on hearing this, I choose my health over my shyness. I rlly need to pee

Also guys, you can make your bladder too strong and lose that signal that you need to pee. Because of my own chronic holding in as a young child, I eventually caused a condition known as hardened bladder where, as it was explained to me, the muscle that makes up your bladder becomes too strong and that sensation that tells you that you have to go gets weaker and weaker. I pretty much only feel that I have to go when I need to go absolutely immediately. As a child I also had to have surgery as my bladder was becoming so full the urine was refluxing back into my kidneys. Long story short: don’t hold in your pee kids. Seriously.

Who else goes to the bathroom while watching this just to make sure
TurtleBab (5 months ago)
One time I didn't have the urge to pee at all, and just let it go. No warning, no nothing. I was in public too, but I was wearing black pants so I guess it wasn't noticeable??

Why didn't you explain what happens when the bladder bursts? Does pee go everywhere down into the toes? Is there a huge infection risk where if not treated; the legs need to be amputated?

500 mL, huh? I must have a freakishly-huge bladder, then, because I routinely produce 1,000-1,250 mL in one go. Hazards of being a boozehound, I guess?

I've held my pee for the reason of finishing an assignment online on school. (I do my school at home for middle school. Reason why is because kids tend to get crappy and really "playful" at this period... which I don't cope with easily. I also get bullied quite a bit already. feel free to share moments where you got bullied.)
Titanic (5 months ago)
I can hold my pee for hours, despite being small for my age. I think my holding my pee has made my bladder bigger. Edit: Did you know that people that are really old have to wear diapers because they can't hold their pee in very well?

Jeremy Thompson (5 months ago)
In elementary school i used to avoid using public restrooms because of some bad experiences. I would go all day without peeing, and when I got home, my bladder would be sore, swollen, and rock hard. It took like 5+ minutes to pee. Thank god my fear didn't last into middle school.
