Peeing at Krogers

We go out to eat for lunch yesterday at my favorite restaurant.

I didn’t Fluid Load before hand, just went like normal. I had a root beer and a salad and that was it. Lunch was quick and we were still headed to the grocery store.

Now, I didn’t have to pee at the restaurant, but over the next 15 minute drive to Krogers, I could actually feel the urge to pee begin.

I tell Mike that I needed to pee. He says to me “Do you want me to stop home first?“, considering the fact that Krogers is basically across the street from where we live.

I say “No, I’ll pee at Krogers”.

And so, as soon as we get there, I head towards the bathroom.

I go in.

I’m the only one there!

I step up to the one and only low urinal, unzip, and wait.

This bathroom is very small and very, very quiet.

Peeing at Krogers

I hold my breath and decide to pull my phone out to check my emails… that usually does the trick.

And sure enough…

I start to pee in 15 seconds!

And I Peed and I Peed, until finally I was finished.

And just as I was ending my stream, the door opens and a guy comes in.

He sees that there is only one urinal and one stall… he hesitates and moves around for a second behind me. I can hear his awkward shuffling as he was gauging if I was finished or not.

I was!

I shake, flush and move away. He quickly took my spot as I washed and left.

It all worked out perfect for me and I returned home with an empty bladder

AND, I didn’t have to Fluid Load or leave the house needing to piss either.

That’s a first!

And that I love!

    That’s awesome. And even without fluid loading!! It really does feel amazing when we have moments like that! Huge leaps forward towards our goals. I had a recent experience just like yours. I’m currently going to college for the first time after graduating high school, 9 years ago. This was a leap of faith that I took upon myself to get to my education goals in life (which shy bladder held me back). On Wednesday I had a class at 5:30 at night and not over till 8 pm. I started to get a urge in class (not an 8 or so urge like I would get from fluid loading, it was more like a 5-6). So I went to another floor to use the restroom. I went in, walked up to the urinal, and peed pretty fast! I couldn’t believe it!! I was out of the house for almost 3 hours and just naturally went to the restroom and used it. I love it how we practice and practice and its working!! And I still believe that positive thoughts are what’s making it easier. And lots of water and practice!! Congratulations again!

      Hi Chris. Yes, it is awesome when it just happens like it should. Who knows what would have happened if the bathroom was full? But, I find that under normal occasions, the bathroom is usually pretty quiet, or has low-moderate traffic. And if you can pee fast and get out, generally you won’t encounter a soul. :) Congrats on peeing without Fluid Loading! That’s a great leap forward! And something to be very proud of. -Richard
