@Courtney_J I think for me it's really had an impact on my social life. I can't really be spontaneous and I'm always on the lookout for the closest bathroom in case I need it. Most of the time when I get somewhere it's the first thing I'm looking for and I sometimes have to plan my day around it. It's awkward at first but you get used to having to explain to people. And having to explain to people at work was embarassing. I feel like a lot of people like my boss and coworkers and even some friends look at me differently... Does anyone else feel like that?
