desperate car ride with a guy friend.. weird
1 month ago · · Driving ,
was on a roadtrip back home with my roomie and we (for some reason?) decided not to stop at the regular half-way point pit stop along the way. I was drinking more water than usual (as per my new meds) and that became a problem when we were about an hour out of the city…
I mentioned having to pee to my roomie who was driving (we’re best friends too) and he seemed to kind of just shrug it off. On our last road trip he said something about how he feels bad for girls having to squat when they’re outside. idk. every time we passed a side road that could be a potential pull-over spot, I got antsy.
as time went on, we’re about 30-40 minutes out and we see someone pulled over on the side of the highway peeing. he kind of laughed at them and I said that I could pretty much feel the need to pee in my chest now. It was true, it was starting to really hurt, but a part of me wanted to pull through to save time. Delusion! He said something like “yeah i can feel that” like ??? idk it just seemed like he didn’t take me seriously.
I was getting pretty desperate when we hit city limits. I regretted not asking him to pull the car over, but there were lots of cars on the highway and no forest to cover, so I was wary at the time.
There was about 20 minutes of city driving ahead of us. No stopping now. It hurt. I could feel weird waves of pain going up into my stomach periodically. He kept asking me how I was holding up, and I told him we really should have pulled over while we were able to. I hope if this happens to me again he’ll be understanding and offer to pull over rather than me holding it to my absolute (painful!) limits. I get that this wasn’t his fault- I could have asked- but I just got weird vibes like he really didn’t want to have that happen.
When we got home I didn’t even run to the door, I walked because it hurt. He did carry my bags in for me while I peed which was nice.
Anyway I’m kinda just pondering on it wondering if the situation made him uncomfortable. Was that why he didn’t offer to pull over? Maybe he felt he was saving me from embarrassment by not stopping for me to flash my ass to passers by? I dont know… anyone out there with any insight?? it was just a weird moment and I didn’t feel like sharing this with anyone publicly
