Let me be a prime example of folks who hold there pee.
I am 25 and have had urinate problems for aleast 15 to 20 years.
It has become so bad I ended up in hospital a few times, many many many urinary tract infections and lots more problems. I just can't pee myself, only small bits with means I have a full bladder 24/7. My bladder holded almost 1 liter once, that was when I was in horrific pain and then you realize how bad something so simple can become so extreme bad. I have always 1 hour pee visits , and spend my entire life around this problem. No cinnama for me, no drinks at certain hours and definitely no drink when working. I just can't sit 1 hour or more on a toilet in school or work.
I am hoping for a real solution soon, something that isn't a indwelling catheter that enters from the front.
Anyways. Pee when you can !!! I mean it. It can cause HORRIFIC problems, believe me and I wish that on no one. Just take a danm piss when you need to, no email in life is THAT important. Truly.
When I was in HS I remember that a lot of restrooms were locked during the day. Example there was a restroom near the lunchroom that was always locked. So I went from 7am till about 2 and then I really had to go. So then I was forced to run to go to the restroom before I had my next class. Plus I was a distance runner so I ran for miles at practice with no place to go to the restroom. I think I am feeling the effects now. Because now I cant hold urine at all.
One time in 4th grade I really wanted to finish a reading test on the computer, but I also REALLY had to go the bathroom. I thought I could hold it in until I finished. I couldn't. I ended up telling my teacher I had an accident (luckily I had black leggings on) and immediately went to the bathroom. I then got a change of clothes and went home. It wasn't bad. That is the oldest that have had an accident, I think.
Who here kinda has to go to the bathroom when you are ready for bed but you don't and you have a great dream about a fun indoor jungle gym or something like that and you have to pee so bad so you go to the bathroom and the stalls are free so you decide to go ahead and go and in real life you pee a little bit and you wake up and you realized that it was real you wet yourself and you have to go really bad so you hobble to the bathroom and pee a little bit every time you step and feel like you are going to die if you don't pee for three hours straight then you're like I have just wet myself GREAT
okay well Is it bad that when I dont pee after 1 minuet of my bladder giving me the signal it hurt like I've been punched in the balls?... also when I do pee if I stop for say I was yelled at by someone behind me and they made me jump it hurts like IS THAT NORMAL? because I'm a 14 year old kid and this don't seem normal!
My problem is I’m such a heavy sleeper that I often won’t wake up to pee until it’s time to get up around 7am. So I could be holding my pee all night but I don’t know about it, all I know is when I do finally pee there’s so much and my lower abdomen hurts. I wish I could do something about it but I have no idea what!
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.
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.
