Did the doctor rule out a UTI?

Or is it possible she is feeling anxious or this is a response to demands at school?

Our daughter has a problem with the overwhelming nature of the school bathrooms: the lights, the noise of the dryer, the uncertainty.

So, at home she is fine, but in public she often refuses to go.

We have started using the handicapped/family bathrooms in stores and airports because we can control the environment. School is another story, but we are working on it.

Good luck to you.
