    Your Adult Diapers Choice

    Finally managed to register here and was looking for what other people's thoughts were on adult diapers they have been using...I tried Depends but it just wasn't enough and caused me too many problems so I went with something a little higher end...I bought the Secure X-Plus adult diapers from I believe Secure Personal Care and they have been working fantastically for me. Any thoughts on others...

    The Highs and Lows

    As I learn to live with incontinence, I'm learning what works fot me and what doesn't.Trying to pretend I'm not incontinent does not work for me. I have gone from trying to keep my bladder empty by going to the bathroom every two hours, during the day and dealing with pads and leakage and the occasional full on accident to wearing a pull up all day and just changing when I need to. I am wearing...

    ?? A foley to get some dry time??

    I normally wear diapers daily but I'm ready for some dry time.  My bladder isn't going to let me stay dry without some form of protection.  I've considered using a Foley Cath with a leg bag for a month to get some time out of my diapers.  Have any of you tried this?  Would you recommend it?

    The "tests"

    I have another dr's appt in the morning and I have a question for the group.  Do all the tests that the era like to do really tell them anything or is it just another way to drain money out of the insurance co's pocket?  I have noticed a lot of posts saying that despite all the tests they do they don't know what's wrong.  Is it worth the agony?

    That didn't work

    Went to my urologist appt the other day and he did his thing and decided it was an infected prostate and gave me Bactin.  I took it as prescribed and...it didn't do anything, as a matter of fact things have gotten worse.  Sometimes I realize I need to go and just can't hold it...other times I don't realize it till I'm wet.  So far I've not wet the bed but I've given up on the idea of making it...
