New to forums, although I have started posting.
Diagnosed with diabetes and plagued by over active bladder with urgency incontinence issues. I am not overweight and don't have other nerve issues.
Currently working with doctors to diagnose, but have turned to diapers to prevent accidents.
I find diapers simple, effective, convenient, comfortable, and discrete protection to prevent embarrassing leakage, and reduce worry, anxiety, and stress related to bladder urgency and frequency.
I have tried a lot of products and prefer a plastic backed taped diaper and currently use Total Dry Plus during the day and a Abena M4 during the night.
My girlfriend is wonderful and knows I have turned to diapers for protection. I keep it discrete and take care of myself. I have begun the process of telling select immediate family of my OAB/UI related to medical issues, primarily on a need to know basis.
Frankly, most people don't share what kind of underpants they wear. In conversation it mostly affects me becuase just about everyone asks, "How are you doing?" I usually reply, "great" but to some I divulge a bit more and indicate, "I am having some bladder issues, and I have to watch my diet" and leave it at that. I have found those that I have told don't usually press further inquiry.
OK, so that's a bit about me
Looking forward to adding to the discussion here.
