Hi, I can understand what disturbaces u might be facing in ur daily routine.Hey I want to know that is u have fear of going to toilet or u have fear of getting contaminated in public toilet.If u have fear of toilet u will avoid going it but u mentioned here u go to it repeatedly.Considering ur fear,avoidance to go out & embarrased feeling u are suffering from kind of mental illness (where person fear going in public places,have palpitaion, intense restless feeling and anxiety on going to public places) This is kind of illness in which ur suffering can be curtailed down with the help of psychotherapy and some medication.It will be better if u meet nearby psychiatrist earliest as possible so he can help u to decrease ur fear and improve ur daily routine.
