Default Had to take a urine test and couldn't do it

I started probation a week ago and my p.o. called me yesterday to tell me that i had to come in for a meeting today. Once i get there she tells me that i have to take a UA (urine analysis). My heart skipped a couple of beats. I knew that i would be having to do this on probation, and i was absolutely dreading it. Urinating in a public restroom is for some reason very difficult for me to do and is somehow linked to my SA. I can't even pee in a urinal if someone else is in the restroom, i have to use a stall and then it takes me forever to start. And these *****ing b*stards expect me to pee in a cup while someone is staring at my junk. Yeah right!

After about 5 minutes of standing in this tiny f*ucking bathroom with another man he finally told me to go drink some water and to wait for a while. So i go drink an ungodly amount of water and wait for 25 minutes. Well my bladder was about to explode so i figured that it was now or never, and i muster up the courage and tell them that im ready. I go back into this same cramped bathroom with a different man this time and i still cant pee! I tried so hard, it just would not happen.

I ended up convincing them to give me a saliva test. My p.o. wasn't happy about this at all, and was being a real b*tch about it. And i had to pay $12.50 for it. And i was told that im "going to have to get over this" and that it was mandatory that i will be taking a urine test on my next meeting. **** THIS!!



end of rant.

Note: Please do not try and bypass the cuss filter. It will lead to warnings.

I couldn't pee once for a urine test...but it was because it was before a surgery and they wouldn't even let me drink anything that morning, not even water! So how the **** was I supposed to be able to pee without any liquids in me? They had to draw blood instead.

For urine tests when I stand at the urinal I relax and keep my mind blank. You have to forget for those couple moments that someone is watching you.

I completely understand. SA can lock up tightly any bladder filled to extreme bursting levels. You had to pay a fine for that?! *****ing bullies are what they are! Why is it so extremely hard for other normal people to understand what a person with SA has to go through?

i had a hard time peeing when im expected to too. in the army people who couldnt pee within a few hours would be rodded- be glad thats not the case here.

next time just drink a half gallon of water before you go. or better yet, next time dont break the law

Don't break the law!

*else drink caffeine....it's a diuretic....makes me wee too much!
Paruresis is a symptom of SA. It's weird to have someone watch you, but it's weirder to be in prison.

Oh, and just be thankful you were able to do the saliva test. For my present job, I had to have a HAIR test. They cut my hair all the way to the scalp to test for drugs. I kid you not. That goes back MONTHS! I don't do drugs, so it wasn't a problem - I was p!$$3d that because of actual drug users, clean people are now forced to take these tests or not get hired!

Wow, this is definitely something I wouldn't be able to handle. I have the same problem. Urinals are out of the question, and sometimes I can't even go when using a stall, especially if people are continually entering the restroom. It's either a single-occupancy room with a lock on the door or nothing for me. I just wish more of these were available. Having someone watch would be absolutely impossible. You should tell them that this isn't something you can simply "get over" and maybe see a doctor about getting a diagnosis. The official name for it is paruresis.

By the way, contrary to popular belief, caffeine is not a diuretic. See here and here.

I couldnt do a urine test at my docs either, so i told him I would gladly give him a hair follicle test which is 100x better at detecting drugs but he refused so I did too. Stupid idiot, what drugs could I possibly want that i dont already have prescribed to me.
