I have to take a short train trip (no bathroom, subway) in the next day or so. The subways have a knack of stopping between stops, the motor goes off, no announcement. I start getting edgy. I do plan to take an Imodium beforehand but I wonder if that really worked if you had some panic. I wear Depends PLUS plastic underwear, great one I found with soft cotton on both sides, fits well...plus a long black skirt. Afraid to travel in jeans for obvious reasons :-(I hate this, to be so scared of an hours trip but you all understand. I just don't know if the Imodium can work if the food is sitting close to where it has to come out and if it can really prevent it if we have a bad panic feeling/attack. I know on a logical level that the train will start moving but every minute seems like an hour when the train stops and on an emotional level, I just lose it. I have to make this trip often because it's my Mom who I adore and as understanding as she is, I have not seen her in 2 weeks, it makes me so frustrated and upset. Any advice or input based on your experience, especially with the panic situation would be appreciated.
