New Years 2014 Goals

I’ll be brief with this post, I have a habit of rambling.

Now that 2013 is ending (Goodbye Paruresis), and I’ve made tons of progress so far, I’m going to push my limits.

I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and into very scary territory.

But, if I’m to get to the point where I can pee in a crowded bathroom with guys waiting behind me, then I’ll need to face my fears and tackle this bitch head on.

As I stated in a previous post, my goals for 2014 are simple…

New Years 2014 Goals

To Recover from Paruresis!

To do this, I plan on taking some very huge steps

  1. I’ll Load up on Coffee and Water
  2. I’ll NOT Pee 1 Hour before I leave the house
  3. I’ll visit 1 Public Bathroom a week (like at a mall)
  4. I’ll Practice Breath Hold at that visit
  5. I’ll have to Fully Empty my Bladder with other guys around

That last step is important because I have a habit of waiting until the bathroom is cleared out before I pee.

I’ll also visit at least 2 other public bathrooms that week to desensitize, but peeing in those bathrooms is optional (I’m only fluid loading for one of them… at least to start).

We’ll see how that goes! That will show me if I’m ready to push it further, or if I need more work.

I know I’m scared, but I’m taking it slowly and progressing at my own speed.

After all, I’ve had this condition my whole life, and I have some huge obstacles to overcome.

But one thing’s clear:

Paruresis will be a thing of the Past!

My Past!

    happy new year Richard! You know, in the coming 3 months, I bet you’ll be free of paruresis enough to just live your life you know. practicing 1x a week with the breath hold is probably the smartest addition to your normal routine you could possibly make! Just know while you are spending 2 other days “desensitizing” (again, the return of quotation marks), I’ll be sitting back with my feet up! I wish you luck on all your endeavors of course. Just to emphasize one point, I don’t think anyone can be fully cured of paruresis, so don’t get your hopes up that desensitizing at the mall will have a marked effect (or any effect for that matter) on your primary paruresis problem. Like I said, you are “brave” in doing this so that’s all that really counts anyways. I think you’ll be best to go on with our life as it is and live it to the fullest. Also, like I said, I bet in 3 months that either way you will be safe from this condition enough to live a normal life, and by then be in different place with your life.

      That’s all I ask Jordan. Just to at least get to a point where I can pee in public and not feel like I’m dying inside. I don’t want to have to avoid doing the things that I want to be doing, like living life to the fullest, just because I have a bashful bladder. If I’m still apprehensive, that’s fine, just as long as I can pee someway, somehow. That’s the ultimate goal. :)

      Happy New Year!
      P.S. You should make a video yourself, like Max and Dominic, showing how you use Breath Hold and what it feels like. :)
