    time before Urgency appears and uncontrolable release.

    My severe urgency is not regular at all. I can be fine one minute and the next ready to soil my diaper at a moments notice. Sometimes I can last for up to 5 minutes but most of the time not.I've been burned before thinking I had more time only to have a surprise BM when I least expect it. It's...

    Anyone just sit there in there night diaper

    Sometimes I've soiled my diaper in the early morning hours and admit that I'm just tired to change. I'll go back to sleep knowing I will have a typically large BM after coffee. I hate changing and showering only to have another BM within the hour. Once I'm sure I'm done I'll go in for a change...

    Cloth diapers

    cloth vs disposable After 20 years I think I can consider myself an expert. It comes down to whatever works best for you personnaly. I do like the convenience of a good disposable (Confi-dry 24/7 with plastic pants) I use Desitin ointment ( zinc oxide) and Nullo. I'm not offensive to those...

    Accidents at work?

In our house (mothther was a nurse uo to her 3rd) it was all very clinical yet loving and comasionate. Yes, I know how lucky I was. There was and is still much love in our house. I thank the good...

    Accidents at work?

    Accidents, which are always rather large BM's, were never really a problem for me at work. It was my own company and I had a private bathroom in my office. Occasionally I would be out meeting a client and I'd have a really big BM. Never bothered me much. I use a lot of Metamucil so the stool...

    Getting over public changing embarrassment

    I think I remember being embarrassed in the beginning. But 99 % of my changes were for really bad BM's (loose stool - very uncomfortable) that almost always proved disastrous. I fixed that by taking a bulk producing fiber supplement 4 or 5 times a day ( my doctor recommended psyllium/Metamucil)...

    Cloth diapers

    I think more people would use cloth if disposables weren't so convenient, especially during the day when having to drag around heavy,wet diapers becomes difficult. There are more and more people using cloth at night. They're effective, comfortable and inexpensive. They do have to be laundered...

    public accidents that are hard to hide.

    I go to church almost daily. I was raised Catholic so it's just part of who I am as a person. I went to Catholic schools my whole life, including college at De Paul.It's just something I started doing after I retired. (sold my business at 55 and said enough was enough.) There is no connection...

    public accidents that are hard to hide.

    Typical Sunday morning for me. I started with a kayak run around the lake then a change and into the shower. I hoped my bowels were emtpy enough to attend morning mass without a massive bowel accident. It's a warm morning so I went with Confi-dry 24/7 with a booster, plastic pants and athletic...

    Flat cloth diapers

    There are so many types of adult cloth diapers available these days. It can be expensive to experiment to find what works best for you but in the end, i think it's well worth it. I have a large assortment of cloth diapers, from prefold,contour and pull-up. I do like the contour with velcro...

    Getting over public changing embarrassment

    Having had severe bowel IC for 20 plus years I've had to change in public on more than a few occasions. In the beginning I had mostly loose stool. When I had an accident I had to change as a diaper full of loose stool is uncomfortable. Was a change in public embarrassing? Yes. But not as bad as...

    Cloth diapers or disposable diapers?

    I've been using cloth diapers and plastic pants for night use for decades. Disposables for day time. Never had leak problems at night but I also use a disposable at night as a "diaperliner" because I'm prone to night BM accidets and they keep stool off my cloth diapers and makes laundering...

    Side sleepers and disposable nappies

    I wear the dry 24/7 for 2 reasons. First, extra capacity. Second, the disposable acts as a "diaper liner" if I have a BM, which happens at least a few times a week. I do sometimes awaken when I wet but I'm more than half asleep and as soon as I'm done I'm out. A lot of the time I wake up wet and...

    Side sleepers and disposable nappies

    I had problems with leaks as I'm a side sleeper too. I fixed the issue by using my typical day use dry 24/7 with booster, then running a pinwheel over the plastic backing to create flow through and then using a pull-up cloth diaper (Kins model 10700) with plastic pants. I also use a good...

    I hate when that happens

    This hasn't happened in a long time. I like to be confident with my protection regardless of whether I'm at home or out and about. I was only going out to the library to drop off a few books and pick up one that they were holding for me. I had on a dry 24/7 with a stuffer under some plastic...
