    Intimacy...

    1
    Does anyone have issues during intimacy? I always get a huge amount of anxiety when there is the potential to be with someone because I am afraid of having an accident on them / in front of  them. This sort of thing makes me despondent since I feel that I will never find a partner who is understanding.

    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...

    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??

    6
    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"

    2
    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?

    I'm a 27 year old male, after I got into a four wheeler accident the nerves in my lower back got massively damaged. Now I'm totally incontinent. I don't feel it until I'm wet or having a bowel movement. I'm embarrassed, I feel ashamed and don't want to even leave the house most days. Does anyone have any tips for the day to day life of wearing diapers 24/7? Thank you for listening, I needed this...

    Hi guys, so im new to this whole support group thing, so forgive me if i say the wrong thing.
