Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello, Thank you for using justanswer.com.
I'm sorry to hear you are going through this. There are a number of things you can try to help this problem. First, you may want to ask if you can be unobserved for the tests? Unless this is a urine drug screen that needs to be monitored. If so, you can requested the use of an oral swab test instead of a urine screen. Also, you may want to consider hypnotherapy. Sometimes, hypnosis is very helpful for these types of problems. I hope these suggestions help. Please let me know if you have any other questions. If you are satisfied with my answer, please click accept and leave positive feedback. Thank you.
Thanks for that answer. I have considered hypnotherapy. The urine tests I have are drug/alcohol tests and nurse presence is essential. So far I hove got arround it by seeking privacy but I know my next one will require nurse presence. I am petrified.
Do you think they would consider an oral swab test? Perhaps if you were to pay extra for it? I know that is really scary, knowing your job is on the line if you can't produce. Sometimes people will ask to give a blood test at their primary care dr's office as well. I really hope one of these suggestions help. All the best, Kym
Thanks XXXXX wont consider blood tests or oral swabs unfortunatley.
ah, that's no good! I would definitely seek a hypnotherapist then. You can look online for downloadable MP3's for a shy bladder.
or find one locally.
Also, you could try a therapist that specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy. It would be a much longer process though.
Thanks again Kym. I dont have a lot of time before the test is due
hmmm, try the downloadable MP3 then. I think that would be best.
