How To Make Yourself Pee For A Drugs Test – The Pressure’s On!
These days there’s a variety of different situations which require the need for a mandatory drugs test. This could be by the police or law enforcement, in prison, in various workplaces or sporting environments. Whilst there are now various means of carrying out such tests the urinary test remains the most common form.
A drugs test can be stressful for anyone involved. In fact informal evidence via a Mandatory Drugs Testing (MDT) department in the US military reported that only 30% of all men drugs testes had no problem in providing a sample of pee. Of the remaining 50% struggled to varying degrees but managed to produce in the end but 20% were unable to provide a sample at all and were humiliated by being told to “sit on a bench and drink”!
So, if it’s that hard under normal circumstances just how hard is it to make yourself pee for a drugs test if you’re suffering from shy bladder syndrome?
How To Make Yourself Pee For A Drugs Test – 5 Steps
Again, let me stress my sympathy if you’re in this situation. Whilst it’s not pleasant there are things you can do and steps you can take in order to solve the problem. Here are our 5 steps on how to make yourself pee for a drugs test.
Step 1 – Get A Diagnosis
The first thing you should do is to pay a visit to your doctor, medical practitioner or professional to get an “official” diagnosis of Paruresis.
Explain your drugs testing concerns and explain the reason for wanting such a diagnosis. Once you have this formal Paruresis diagnosis it cannot be argued against and will be taken seriously and regarded as genuine.
Talking to your doctor may also result in potential treatment options or referrals to a local specialist therapist or help-group.
Step 2 – Open Up
Once you have your diagnosis you need to make people aware of your condition. You don’t need to announce it to the world, just formally inform the person / department responsible for organising the drugs test.
You’ll probably need to explain the condition and the fact that it’s an official form of social anxiety disorder. Linking them to authority websites may help to – we suggest:
If people know about your social anxiety disorder (which is what shy bladder syndrome is officially classified as) then action may be the taken to recognise and make provisions for your condition. To give you an example in the UK the Mandatory Drugs Test staff have been issued with the following guidelines in respect of the drugs testing of prisoners:
“Some prisoners have a psychological condition called shy bladder syndrome which prevents them passing urine if they are observed or pressurised. The problem may or may not be linked to other, more serious, psychological problems; it may be more common among young offenders than among adult prisoners. If a prison officer suspects a prisoner cannot provide a sample because of this problem, there are two possible approaches:
- a) the prisoner must be allowed more time at the toilet without the time pressure to provide an immediate sample and a reduced level of observation; and
- b) if this fails, the prisoner, after a full strip search, may be provided with a sample collection cup and allowed to provide a sample in compete privacy in a cell with internal sanitation (water must be blued and the flush must not be accessible from inside the cell).”
