In another support group I am in, it was suggested that it might be cathartic to share the most embarrassing bedwetting and/or incontinence accident as a way to help deal with the "mind games" that living with incontinence can bring.
I figured it was good exercise and I'd share it here also. Anyone else have a particularly embarrassing experience they've never been able to talk about that they'd want to share?
One of the most embarassing accidents I have ever experienced came right after the incontinence/bedwetting returned to my life. I was about 18 or 19 years old and had just started college. I was commuting in to campus on a bus since I lived a few miles away. Right around this time, I contracted an immune illness which left me constantly feeling exhausted. I could literally fall asleep anywhere (not a good problem to have when you are a sleep wetter). It was so bad, sometimes I would find myself dosing off when I was stopped at a red light in my car. It was terrible and almost unsafe at times.
Anyway... after a long day on campus.... walking around from class to class... I was exhausted. I got on the bus to head home. I was on the bus for a few minutes when I fell asleep. I woke up about an hour later having completely missed my stop and the whole front of my pants were wet. (This was before I admitted that I had a bladder problem.)
Fortunately, by that time, there was only 1 or 2 other people on the bus, so by the time I got off the bus I was able to do so without a bunch of people seeing me. But it was still embarrassing. This was a huge warning sign. Unfortunately I was still in a little bit of denial about my bladder problems, so I refused to wear diapers. I wished I would have just started then. Would have saved me a bunch of time and energy.
Anyone else have something funny/embarrassing for the group?
