    I'm 42 and drive a log truck for a living.  I had just pulled into the woods to get a load the other day and an urge to urinate hit me so bad that I almost could not hold it...ok, I didn't hold it.  By the time I made it out of sight of the rest of the guys in the woods my undies had a wet spot in them.  This is/was a first for me.  In my younger days (pre 12 years old) bedwetting was an...

    Overactive bladder

    This is not exactly incontinence because it's not involuntary. But ever since the symptoms started, it has been driving me out of my mind.I can't get a good night's sleep because I wake up ever house having to go the the bathroom. Luckily and fall back asleep, but an hour or less later I'm up again going to the bathroom. I don't know where all the water is even coming from. I don't drink a...

    I am interested in hearing advice regarding external catheters. I am male, 63 years old and have recently become incontinent. I am hopeful that this is a temporary condition, but need advice on options for coping. I am using pull-ups 24/7 at this point, but find them awkward when outside the house. I read about condom catheters (various types) and would like to hear from people who have tried...

    SupraPubic catheter advice

    Hi, I'm a 78 year-old male with prostate and bladder problems for over 18 years.  My prostate cancer was treated with radiation which resulted in a urethral stricture.  7 urethrotomies and at least that many dilations have left me incontinent.  The urologist and I decided to install a SupraPubic catheter 2 months ago, hoping that the stricture would finally close off the urethra and solve the...

    Love and Friendship

    Even though I am not single I do wish there was a dating site for people with this problem. Why? Because so many people out there have NO sympathy for people with incontinence and many are quite cruel. I have heard many stories of rejection & mockery both from mates & work place/ so called friends. It makes me angry. Many people with hard problems in life to me are often the more Beatuiful people...
