Hi Easwer. You need to verify that your problem is because of fear or if its due to comfort issues.. One can understand you not visiting washroom elsewhere due to personal hygeine issues. If that is the case, I suggest is that your report them to the authorities. Do you part in development of the community.. However, if your symptoms are due to fear, then its time that you consider consulting a psychiatrist for a desensitization programme.. If you want to clarify any other issues, you are welcome to write back to me on this forum.
