Anyway, so I went to the bathroom immediately before going to see my friend. I was in her apartment for 2 hours and had nothing to drink. As the elevator doors closed, the urge to pee came over me. I would have gone back, but she was getting in the shower as I left, so she'd not have been able to open the door. My brilliant plan at this point was to go to the Starbucks a half block away and use their bathroom. However, as I paused to cross the street, I couldn't hold it any longer. :( So in the less than 5 minutes it took to take the elevator down a few floors and walk less than 1/2 block, I went from perfectly fine to wetting myself. Embarrasing and now I have pee soaked clothes sitting in my car. :(
So, I don't have a UTI, nor am I diabetic. This is an ongoing problem for me, though the severity of my need to pee urgently episodes does seem to wax and wane. Any ideas on what to do/what might be the cause or what I can do to mitigate this? I am also currently insuranceless (insert rant about the US healthcare system here), but I hope to be insured in the near future (jobs on the horizon). These periods of urgent need to urinate seem to wax and wane, but will last for a while. I don't think it's diet related.
