    In DC with my little... looking for suggestions

    I have been there twice and want to go back for another week or two. There are so many free things to do. The musiems are awesome, love riding the Metro, and just walking where so much history has been made. While I was there, I took my back pack with me and had just a few extra diapers and...

    Good Botox outcome

    I have tried Botox in the past two different times and the out come for me wasn't worth the cost. It didn't allow me to totally go without protection because my bladder would still let loose on it's own just not as much. The two times I had it done, it semi helped for about 2 months tops...

    Incontinence supplies, HSAs, and taxes in the US

    I don't have an HSA, I have an FSA and use it for my incontinence supplies. The one create thing with my FSA is that I have a credit card through them and I am able to order my supplies right from Northshore using that card. Not all adult diaper distributers accept the FSA card but since...

    Usage of diapers

    For me, I have no control of my bladder so I am in diapers 24/7 for that. When it comes to bowel movements I have become more and more where I will go ahead and do them in my diaper. Part of me has decided that I am already in a wet diaper that will need changed, so when I am at home, it's no...

    For you who are incontinent

    So many here have stated some of the main things. One of the biggest for me is the cost of the diapers. I need/want good quality diapers at a fair cost. When you have to use them all the time in order to live a quality of life that one desires, the cost of good diapers takes away from that...

    PET Scan, Nuclear Imaging and Incontinence

    Reading this, I don't think you would have to be cathed before or after the test, but they may want to do it during the test if they are scanning down around that area. Personally I think it would be wise to say something because if they are scanning down in that area and you can't hold it...

    Wet my pants again coming out of work yesterday :(

    Since you are small, have you tried using the GoodNites TRU-FIT? They are "normal" looking underwear that you put pads in. When I started having to wear 24/7 I was concerned about others seeing the tops of my diapers so I started buying my shirts in a long size which helps cover them up. In...

    What to expect before surgery

    Felix, I have to agree with Slomo, it's best to go in wearing them and be open and honest with them about it. Depending on how long your surgery takes, will depend on what/how the doctors will want to handle you possibly wetting. They might leave it on you if it's not in the way of the...

    Throwing away underwear

    I too have thrown out all my "normal" underwear. Being bladder incontinent for 11+ years now, diapers are the only type of underwear that I have other than my diaper covers/pants.

    PET Scan, Nuclear Imaging and Incontinence

    when I had a Pet Scan done, I wasn't incontinent at that time, but since I have been incontinent, I have have lots of MRI's and CT scans for various reasons. Having to wear a diaper hasn't been an issue at all. When I was hospitalized and had these done, it was obvious I was diapered because...

    normal?

    Like so many others have said, it's not normal and you are on the right path getting it checked out. I don't have control of my bladder either. It releases when it wants to and doesn't warn me either. My two urologist I see both feel it's due to some nerve damage in the spine. Since my...

    Incontinence & faucet/water sounds

    I have nerve damage to the nerves to bladder. My bladder has a mind of it's own. So when my mind hears running water, many times I will wet. Almost every time I wash my hands, I wet, when I hear my wife pee many times, I start wetting. I don't feel the urge, I just start going. Sometimes...

    Sleep Apnea

    I do have sleep apnea but it isn't the cause of my wetting. I do know that sleep apnea can cause one to have bladder issues at night due to the fact that once you are using a CPAP and getting the rest you need, your body can actually relax enough causing wetting issues. One thing that has...

    Who have you told?

    As for me, it's a need to know basis. The only family members that know are my wife, sister, and one aunt. I have a few friends that know and the only reason they know is because we have had to bunk together or take long trips together. I look at my diapers as my underwear. I don't need to...

    Being Changed

    I think that they were well trained in dealing with bed wetting issues. The reason I say this is because, they had some supplies, even though they were diapers, and that they always had two of them there when putting you into a diaper. From your account of how things happened, it appears they...

    Hotel staff saw me in my nappy....

    I have done lots of traveling this year and even staying in the same hotel for 3 different weeks. I always have a bed pad down on my bed and bring my own trash bags to throw out my diapers. I put my used diapers in a plastic bag, then put them in the trash bag. There are times that I have...

    How to hide crinkle of diaper in public?

    When I started having to wear I kept extra change and my keys in my pocket and if it was to quiet I would put my hand in my pocket and play with my keys and change. But like some of the others have said, we are our worst enemies for hearing it because we know we are wearing it. Most people...

    Best place to order m4s

    Like many others have already said, Northshore Care is one of the better places to get them. I order directly from them and I call my order into them too. They have always been very supportive and many times have thrown in samples of other diaper, wipes, pads etc on my orders. I haven't...

    Plastic Pants That Are Actually Durable

    I don't know if these are plastic enough for you, but I use the Gary Wear ones that NorthShore sell. I was even one of the testers for them and still have and use some of the test ones that I was sent. I have washed them many, many times and the elastic around the waist and legs are still...

    Shaving and a physical

    None of my doctors have ever said anything. When I had to have a heart catheter done, the nurse prepping me said that she had to shave me down there and it would be like a boxer short shave, I told her doesn't matter in fact you may not have to shave much at all, she said your right, you have...
