Walked around Vegas wearing my "Shy Bladder, So What" tee shirt and asked strangers to take a picture of me in between restroom visits.

Peeing On Berlin Wall
Whizzing On The Berlin Wall
In downtown Vegas, a casino purchased a large section of the Berlin Wall. They used it for the wall of a restroom and attached urinals and toilets to it. Symbolically, you can "pee on the Berlin Wall".
Deserts don't have bushes
Where Am I Gonna Pee!!!
Prior to recovery, I drove 300 miles across the desert to visit Vegas once or twice a year. I couldn't use public restrooms, and there's no trees or bushes. It was a bladder bursting nightmare.
Desert bush
Just go behind a bush?
This desert "bush" isn't sufficient for a severe paruretic like I used to be.
Self-Catheterization while on horseback
Self-Cath On Horseback
To demonstrate how easy it is to self-cath, a paruretic friend did it while on horseback. Yup...that's what he's doing.

Different types of catheter tips
Catheter Tips
TOP: Bard coude tip. MIDDLE: Mentor masochist tip, BOTTOM: Cure bullet tip. My personal favorite is the Cure bullet tip. The Cure eyelets are also superior in my opinion, producing little or no irritation.
Catheter Coude Tip
Catheter With Coude Tip
This is a Bard red rubber catheter with a "coude" tip. The concept is that the bend facilitates making the right-angle turn, upward from the back of the penis, north to the bladder.

Bumblebee Urinal
This urinal was in a very small and always busy restroom back in 2006 when I began recovery. I tried and tried, week after week, and that damn bumblebee stayed dry. Two months of desensitization later...he got wet.
Newspaper Sink Guy
22 Minutes At A Urinal
This is "Newspaper Sink Guy". He plays a large role in my video of the day I broke the world's record for standing at a urinal. Video
Dave Pees In A Cup!
Dave Pees In A Cup!
It took 7 months of daily work, 3 support group meetings per week, an IPA workshop, and a LARGE cognitive shift. I said "please be patient, I have a shy bladder". The test admin said, "well...you have 3 minutes".
