A senior year student with a medical condition that causes frequent UTIs was humiliated by her teacher in front of her classmates. The student had asked to use the bathroom before class, but the teacher refused and publicly scolded her. When the student asked again later, the teacher lectured the whole class about going to the bathroom before class unless they had a medical condition. The student then informed the teacher that she did indeed have a medical condition and the teacher responded by telling her that she did not want to know about her bathroom habits. The student was subsequently asked to apologize to the teacher for making her uncomfortable. However, the student is unsure of what she did wrong as the teacher had asked about her medical condition. What do you think? AITA?

Student shares struggles with medical condition and UTIs.

A student with a tilted reproductive system suffered the humiliation of being lectured in front of the whole class by her teacher when she asked to use the bathroom. Despite the teacher knowing about her medical condition, the student was told to hold it and not ask again. When the student tried to explain her situation to the teacher after class, the teacher dismissed her and accused her of violating her privacy. The student was left feeling mortified and confused about what she did wrong. Now, she's turning to Reddit to ask if she's the a**hole in this situation.
