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

Rating: 5 stars  

I suffered for years not know what was wrong with me. I thought I was the only person who had the problem. Once I discovered the IPA, I finally realized that I was not alone and I now had a term for my condition. I had been to doctors in the past and none of them did anything for me. They did not even know why I could not go while someone was in the bathroom with me. Once I discovered that I had Paruresis, I began educating the doctors in my town on this condition. I am and always will be glad for the International Paruresis Associaton.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I am 42 years old and have suffered with Paruresis since I was a child. I am not sure was caused this problem. For years I suffered thinking I was the only person in the world with this problem. I even went to a local doctor, to see if he could help me. He could not help me or advise what was causing this condition. It was not till about ten years ago that I read an article in a national news paper did I realize what the condition was caused and that there was an organazion. I immediately went online to the Paruresis Association website. I finally had a name for my condition and I discovered for the first time that I was not the only person in the world who had this condition.
