Short Survey for Group Members!

Hi all,

This group has been going for awhile now! A lot of us kind of know each other already, but a lot of new people have joined who may not be aware of who is here or what kinds of issues we deal with. So, I thought it might be helpful if we all take a couple minutes and answer a few basic questions about who we are and why we're here... so that everyone in the group can see how many different people deal with this problem.

This is completely optional of course, but I hope it will help a lot of us who are still active here (longtime and recent members alike) to get to know and understand each other better!


Just 8 questions -- answer as short or as long as you want to. Complete sentences not required. :)

1. Your age group -- just the decade is fine (e.g., 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, etc.)

2. For how long have you had bedwetting problems?

3. About how often do you wet the bed currently? (Every night, most nights, once a week, twice a month, etc.)

4. Do you have any issues with urinary incontinence during the daytime? If so, how often?

5. Do you know or have an idea what causes your wetting problems?

6. What steps do you take to try to manage or control your bedwetting? (Absorbent products, bed pads, alarms, medication, fluid restrictions, timed awakening, etc.) Be as specific or nonspecific as you like!

7. Who else knows about your wetting issues? (Family members, friends, etc.) Are they supportive?

8. What are you most hoping to gain from being part of this group? Tell us whatever you are hoping to see happen here -- learning more about the facts of your condition, getting to know others, meeting new friends to chat with, just knowing you're not alone -- whatever is on your mind!

Thanks for taking the time to share with us! Please let me know if you ever have any questions or concerns about this group!

Here are mine:

1. 30-39
2. All my life
3. Probably 1-2 times a month on average, sometimes gets a little worse with stress
4. No real problems during the day, but have a small bladder and need to go a lot
5. I have a small underdeveloped bladder
6. Try to be reasonable about what I drink at night but am not a slave to it. :) Waterproof mattress pad and wash the sheets when I need to. When away from home, I am really careful about what I drink, and either use my phone alarm to quietly make sure I wake up and go in the middle of the night, or wear adult pull-ups to bed as a last resort if other methods aren't practical.
7. My wife and a few close friends know. Family doesn't know. I am very selective about who I tell but almost all who know are very supportive.
8. I would love to meet and talk to any other people who struggle with wetting problems as adults. Share stories about physical and emotional challenges that come with this problem. A cure may be beyond reach but always open to new ideas to manage it better. :)

We are still looking for other alternatives. The all-in one's are very pleasant to wear but disposable are more absorbent and not so thick between the legs and bottom. Would be fine to hear from others what they wear and they experience.

I have always wet the bed, usually every night, several times a night.
But only have day problems if away from home, being somewhat allergic to public facilities - if available!
All the tests have been negative, so it is "functional" rather than "organic" in cause. I am just a bedwetter.
I have tried a russian roulette of medications, alarms, wakings, fasts & droughts before bed, you name it!
I use nappies/diapers, waterproof pants & bedding, cream, powder, wipes, disposal bags etc
The whole world knows, so what! My current Goal is to be: Happy To Be A Bedwetter. I'm doing my best.
The joy of this site is to know that this "fact of life" is shared by trillions of others, and we can swop mutual suppor/tips/advice among our community. And use our journals to help us cope. United, we shall overcome!

    College with Incontinence

    I am about to return to college. I have been losing more and more control over my bladder. I've been having occasional leaks in the daytime and wetting heavily at night. I was wondering if anybody else dealt with incontinence in college or has any tips or advice with how to manage my condition?
