Over the past five years or so I have gradually become more and more incontinent, despite lots of treatment and two operations. On Sunday I made the decision to stop using the toilet for urination. It had got to the stage of only making it about 10% of the time anyway, and involved lots of hassle. So I decided to just us my nappy. It has made life a lot easier. It occurs to me that in my journey to incontinence I have crossed several other mile stones on the way. Are you the same?
The dribbling in your pants after peeing getting so bad your trousers are wet. The first time you don't make it to the toilet on time and start to wet your pants before you pull them down. The first time you end up totally wetting your pants for the first time since you were a kid. Also the first time you wet your bed again. Added to that the decision to start to wear protection, to start with at night and then 24/7. The absorbsion gradually increasing.
So here I am, having not peed in a toilet for three days. It is much more relaxing now I have eventually taken the plunge. I know I am past the point of no return and that this is it forever.
I am incontinent, but I am not going to let it alter how I live my life.
