Wow a no go policy! I couldn't do that! I am blessed to have the office I have.

Luckily, it didn't take me long to figure out that while upper management would always say, "No, you can't go," my co-workers never would. So, I just wait for a break in the action (as it were) and then I'd announce to my co-workers that I was going potty and I'd be back in less than five minutes. That seemed to work. Of course, I wasn't around long enough to go through another annual review so I don't know if management noticed that technique or not.

Laix 40 mg a day, twice that if I notice swelling in my ankles, plus Spironolactone, 25 mg daily. When I was working, I told my boss that I was on two diuretics daily and he responded with a "No-go-to-the-bathroom" policy! I was threatening to either stand in front of customers and wet my pants or whip it out and pee in the wastebasket! (Not fun times!)
