Believe me…it definitely took years for me to get over the shock & pure embarrassment whenever bladder & bowel oopsies would happen without warning – especially whenever I was in the car or away from home. It took even longer before I could openly share my experiences & allowed the giggles to replace feelings of shame.
It happens, ya know? I’ve had to say “bye bye” to favorite undies tossed in restroom trash bins of various gas stations & other “odiferous” establishments. Nowadays, I try to be prepared (try to keep wet wipes & spare garments in the car), yet if I’m a passenger in someone else’s car, er…um… who knows – it’s often a luck of the draw. In the meantime, I’ve become quite savvy about public restrooms! I know which ones are easily accessible, usually unoccupied, don’t require hazmat suits, nose plugs, etc.
I should probably write some Yelp reviews regarding best public restrooms for MSers & our oopsies!
Giggles shared AND censored a bit to avoid being too graphic here for you readers!
