    Been there myself, having to mention I have the difficulty. The first time is difficult, but it gets easier. In life, and in my job, it has been very necessary to do. I would go to the disability office first, per Donna. Should not be a problem, you have rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    There should be an office at your school where they deal with people with physical conditions. That way you only have to deal with that office and they will deal with your instructors so your condition will be accommodated. I really encourage you to to this; it will make your life much easier.

    Warm hugs,
    Donna

    just an addendum

    Just wanted to say that I am so glad to have found this site. Where people who actually know what you're going through are supporting each other.

    ic, classes and disability

    I have had IC for about 4 months and have dealt with social anxiety my whole life which leads toone feeling: embarrassment. In earlier college classes we were free to use the restroom whenever we needed which was especially good for me before I was diagnosed. In the class inm currently taking, the professor doesn't allow this but he was giving us halfway breaks. I came to rely on those breaks, so today when he didn't give us one I was distressed. Its looking like Inm going to have to own up to this condition with the professor and disability services. I know this will be better for me in the long run but its still an awkward conversation to have. I tried asking my parents for advice but they don't really understand it.
