Urophobia

The fear of urine.

     I just might actually have this one, I don't really know for sure.  Tell you what, to find out why don't we talk it out a bit here and see what we learn.  Firstly, I know I do not like strange urine.  You know, like little spatter drops on a public bathroom toilet seat that you are either sitting down on and using or ruining your pants and all you have to clean the pee drops up with is that cheap thin single ply public restroom toilet paper.  That is really gross.
     I guess that someone with this fear probably doesn't use many public restrooms or is a hoverer.  Maybe they even scour hotel rooms with a blacklight to make sure there isn't any splatter.  You need a blacklight to really tell if the room is dangerous urine is sneaky.  From what I see though that's what it has to be because I couldn't see them having a problem with the act of urinating itself because you have to do that.  I even enjoy making my own brand new pee from time to time.

  1. Yeah, I guess we'll have to assume those with urophobia haven't found a way to hold it forever! Agree on the people who leave splatters behind - too rude.

  2. Ugh, I can't stand when people don't clean up after themselves in the public restroom. So disgusting.

  3. Yeah, I think it goes without saying this fear must be of other's pee. Or they really dread those trips to the bathroom. And what if you were afraid of your own pee, but you were obsessed with drinking coffee. Oh the horror.

    1. People do tend to turn into animals in public restrooms don't they?

  5. If I had to use a men's restroom, I might have this too.

  6. Yeah, that's a pretty scary thing to think about. I've become very ocd about public toilets. Also, ever since I read a book where the main character had a urinary tract infection I am paranoid about my urine turning brown or red. So maybe i have urophobia?

  7. Hey great post! Urophobia -- who knew. Even if it is fear of your own as well, I suspect it would be better out than in. This is an odd phobia. I expect all phobias are odd by definition, maybe not syngenesophobia. I hope you are enjoying the challenge of A-Z. Keep up the good stuff.
