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.
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
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.

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.)
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?
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.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
