Review for International Paruresis Association, Inc., Catonsville, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After suffering from paruresis for my entire cognitive life (over 30 years!!) and more importantly, at the brink of failing a UA random test for employment due to 'not producing a sample' I started doing some research online and stumbled into the IPA website. I spent the better part of a day reviewing the information they had on thier website. I followed thier advice and went to an urologist who 'diagnosed' me with paruresis and wrote a nice letter explaining this to my HR department. I also wrote a cover letter for them as outlined by the IPA information. To make a long story short it was succesful and they have since found other means to establish I am not using illegal substances. The days of sweating bullets over the stupid UA's was over. I immediately went back to the IPA's website and made a donation. The inforation and research they do is invaluable to people like me that have this pauresis condition. Although I have not attended any of thier workshopd, I have read the archives and have used many of thier techniques succesfully. The IPA is doing great work and I commend them for all thier time and involvment. Thank you IPA!!!
