I'm new to Adisc, and I am also new to incontinence. I'm looking for advice, but there does not seem to be much activity here.
I've been a bit of a DL most of my life but recently I have lost all bladder control. My doctor has not yet been able to determine any reason for this, but I am wetting myself, from my perspective, almost constantly. (If I have to put it into numbers, I say 10-20 times a day because it varies depending upon what I am doing.) I generally have no warning whatsoever--a couple of seconds at best. There is no chance I'm making it to a toilet. And it doesn't even matter if I've just changed and emptied my bladder. On many occasions, I have put on a new diaper right after making sure I have nothing left, only to find myself helplessly wetting it minutes later.
I'm waiting for another response from my doctor about what the next step is, but I thought I'd ask you whether this sounds familiar. Is this what it is like? I mean, OK, if I am going to be in diapers for the rest of my life then I guess I can handle it (though the speed with which this came on--not to mention the speed with which diapers went from occasional fetish to inconvenient permanent necessity--has been a bit overwhelming), but I just want to know what is happening is "normal" for whatever segment of "normal" I have found myself in.
