Bathrooms Make Me Nervous: A Guidebook for Women with Urination Anxiety (Shy Bladder)  is unique because, on one hand, it is the first book to explore the condition of paruresis from a woman's point of view.

Yet, on the other hand, its contents have universal appeal - because both females and males exhibit many of the same characteristics when it comes to paruresis.

Bathrooms offers strategies for coping as well as detailed exposure-based protocols for full recovery. Anyone can benefit from reading the book: sufferers, clinicians, and support people.

  • If you’re new to this subject, find out if you meet the criteria for having this condition.
  • If you’re already familiar with paruresis, you will find various methods that others (the author included) have employed in order to cope.
  • Discover why paruretic sufferers feel so alone with their condition and how they can best disclose it to others.
  • Learn how to challenge and change your thinking patterns about bathrooms and the people you may encounter in them.
  • Explore updated treatment methods, including breath holding, that will allow you to survive and overcome the condition.
  • Use medical information from the book to educate others.
  • Learn about the effects of bathroom design on a paruretic's life.
  • Read real life stories and anecdotes from others who have managed and recovered from paruresis.
  • Follow practical suggestions and extensive illustrations that help apply the information and techniques, including tips for traveling.
  • Continue to educate yourself about parureis by following links to valuable resources.
