Our answer:

Hold on a minute long breath. "As you exhale, relax, the urine can flow"Says Dr. Philipp Hammelstein, psychotherapist at the University Hospital Dusseldorf. can in this way get to grips with mild cases of the so-called Paruresis, in severe cases, can only help you get a behavioral therapy.

For information, see www.psycho.uni-duesseldorf.de. Try it before but first with mutton stone self-help book "Let it run" (Pabst-Verlag, zirka15 euros) and drink more - then that increases the pressure in the bladder and emptying easier.
