I'm new to this and ran across this forum. It's been a blessing to read others having similar issues so I don't feel so isolated.I basically have the immediate urge to BM caused by loss-of-control environmental situations, mostly based on traveling. I'm good if driving, uncomfortable if stuck in traffic and unfamiliar with my surroundings for example. Taking a subway or riding with others for long periods of time are anxiety-causing issues, and I think it stems from my being a Type A personality. The problem is that I think about my travels, plans, schedules, etc., almost automatically, and I live through the embarrassment of having these immediate reactions that start with stress, waves of stress, onto the gas and, finally, "I gotta go NOW." I just don't want it to cause me to start retreating from opportunities, going out with friends, etc., because I'm afraid of being stuck somewhere without a bathroom close by.Can anyone identify and offer suggestions, perhaps? Thanks for reading.
