I am older man and still have trouble at night<quoted text>
Hi Princess Holly, I agree that bedwetting is a sort of disability. Do you know what is causing it in your case?
Im a disabled teenage boy with Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy (CP), which mainly affects my legs, but in my case its also left me with no bladder control, because the part of my brain that would normally control my bladder is also not working. I wet small amounts very frequently, without any sensation that Im doing so, because it only takes a small amount of urine to get into my bladder before it empties without any warning. I dont think I have ever been dry for more than half an hour maximum.
My day/night protection now consists of double-thickness shaped terry nappies tightly held in place with Velcro tapes at the waist and thighs, as my clumsy finger control means that I cant manage pins on my own. I usually have a folded small terry nappy acting as a soaker pad inside my shaped nappy for added absorption. I cant wear disposable nappies for two reasons. Firstly, they tend to leak in bed if I sleep on my side, and secondly I happen to be allergic to the absorbent stuff thats used in them, which gives me itchy and painful rashes.
I wear lightweight transparent polyurethane pants over my nappy with the waist and leg bands tucked under the nappy to help prevent any possible seepage leaks. Over that, I wear white polyester pants which have an inside coating of polyurethane. These pants not only provide even more protection against leaks, but they also look more like normal underwear than most plastic pants, so they are less conspicuous if anybody happens to get a glimpse of them above the waistband of my loose-fitting trousers or shorts.
Although I wet frequently (as Ive explained) the amounts at each wetting are small, so I only need to change every five hours or so. In fact my bedtime nappy lasts all night without leaking. Ever since I changed to tight fitting shaped terries, Ive noticed that Im not even aware that Im wet, even when my nappy is almost saturated, so I can carry on life as normal (within the limits of my CP) without thinking about wetting, as long as I remember to do a nappy change every five hours or so during the day.
If any other disabled people (male or female) have similar wetting problems, perhaps we could share any tips we may have for dealing with it.
