    That didn't work

    1
    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...

    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...

    My Life Story As A Wetter

    1
    I was a late potty trainer. I vividly remember being in diapers as a kid up until it was time for school. Never had an incident until the first grade. And it was twice in week. I went to the doctors and turned out that I had a urinary tract infection. Not common for boys my age, but still. So it was back to diapers until it cleared up. The kids didn’t tease me since they heard it was due to an...

    support of spouse/significant other

    Nearly 7 years ago I began having incidents of wetting the bed again.  My wife (30 years of marriage in June!) never knew about my struggles with this growing up until I was 14, and then still occassionally until 16.  It took awhile for me to admit to her my history of bed wetting, but she was very empathetic which helped sooo much.  At the time I found this to be a very difficult...

    So my whole life I have been unable to control my bladder and bowels. Well I found out today that due to abuse as a baby the damage is permanent and I am fully incontinent. It's really embarrassing.

    I added a new group, Shy bladder. While not strictly incontinence-related, it can lead to episodes of incontinence, when you are unable to use a public restroom for any reason. In my case, even if I do get to a public restroom on time, I have difficulties using it, especially if there are other people there. I wonder if anyone else deals with this.

    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...

    External Catheters

    5
    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...
