As a child, wetting the bed was a regular occurrence for me at least 4 times a week, naturally I have worn Tena Slips (or equiv) at night to deal with this.
6 months ago I had quite a bad head injury whilst at a party, this traumatised me quite bad as I now have a very large scar on my forehead. Also, within a month or so of that incident that one of my very close friend made a suicide attempt, which shook me up quite badly. I received councelling for both of these incidents and everything has mended itself since, thankfully.
Over the last 3 months following these incidents, I have noticed that the severity of my bedwetting has increased dramatically, it now happens at least once a night, sometimes I will wakeup in the middle of the night wet, go back to sleep and notice that in the morning my pad is pushed to breaking point and sometimes leaks.
Also, I keep having panic attacks during the day where I seem to lose control of both bladder & bowels simultaneously, this has happened almost every time I've had a panic attack, normally when waking up in the morning half asleep, but sometimes during the day without warning. As you may have guessed, this has become highly inconvenient as I now have to wear some kind of protection most of the time, especially when I feel nervous.
I’ve got an appointment with the Continence Clinic in a few weeks time after referral from my doctor, so just wondering if you guys had any feedback or thoughts on how this may get sorted??
