We all have our own personal preferences when it comes to sharing private details about our lives. However, it can be helpful to share some of your problems with others instead of keeping everything to yourself.
If you’re a very private person, you may not want to share things about your cathing routine with anyone except your spouse or partner. However, if you are comfortable with the sharing, telling family and friends can be a healthy way for you to cope with changes and struggles you experience. It might even be a relief for you to be open about it. Also, friends and family who know about your need to schedule bathroom breaks – and sometimes longer breaks – might be more understanding, supportive and helpful when you’re together.
