I am 25 and still wet the bed. My husband is very understanding. But it is still so embarrassing. I wet the bed as a small child and then stopped for the longest time.. Now about a year ago it started happening again... I'm trying to deal.. And for the young man who wants to kill himself here are a few tips you can try. Don't drink anything after 6. Set an alarm for the middle of the night, and eventually you will start to get up without one.. And I know it sounds crazy but catch a nap during the day.. One of my reasons is I'm a mother of three and when i hit the bed I am exhausted. so I sleep so hard I don't realize anything until I wake up wet in the morning... Good Luck..

I suffered 4 lower back injuries in one year and 2 more in the next and that brought on bed-wetting and day wetting. I need protection most of the time. It used to drive me crazy. I am now 56 and have had this problem for many years. There is nothing that the doctors can do and I am stuck with it. The key thing is I will live my life as normal as I can and I am going to deal with this. Life is more than plastic pants and diapers. Life is good, and that is the story I am going to stick to!

As someone who as always wet the bed I think you have some good points there.

I am back to nightly wetting again and like you wet regularly as a child. I sleep in terries and plastic pants. I no longer worry about my bedwetting. There are far worse things.

I was born with Nocturnal ensuresis night time bedwetting, my mother also changed my nappies and rubber/plastic pants until I was twelve, when she said I was big enough to do it for myself, I have never felt embarrased about it, it as been quite normal for me, it is other people who dont ot wont understand, that if I dont take precautions before going to bed, then a big wet patch will appear on the sheets, so it as become a ritual over the years, I am married with two grown up boys, and several grandchildren etc, so it doent hold you back, if you have the love of a good women or man, I now get supplied with Euron form super pads, they are just like wearing a nappy, they are big and green in colour and absorbe a hell of alot of urine, I still wear a pair of PVC pants over the pads, just in case of a bit of spillage during the night, they are wonderful, I can sleep on my side or on my back, and they wont leak, so my freinds it is mind over matter, forget what other people think, its what you think that counts, if it seems correct, then it is,end of.

This post is a breath of fresh air, thank you.
I'ts so good to see some sencerble people talking good sence, even the CAT isn't posting his ususal verbal abuse and people with and people with a little problem, and that's just what it is compared to some, can talk without the silly people posting.
I hope it say's this way.
I am disabled and have been for the last six years and have been doubly incontenant since the start so I wear Euron supper form plus, small and find them very confortable and good.
I get through 4 a day but they are not absorbant enough at night so I still use Tena slip Maxi, small at night and they are very good.
I am a bit worried because being forced back into wearing a nappy all the time has caused me to become a little bit of a DL, diaper lover, and I now enjoy the feeling of a nappy on me.
It is not so strong that I would call it a fetish but, as a christian, it dose concern me that it is a sin in the eyes of the Lord, but I can't do nothing about it.
Once again it is so good to see real people posting on the site.
Take care all, Dean.

PCB you dont say how old you are, but I am guessing you are 15 to 21, I suggest you go to your doctors to get help, it could be Nocturnal Enuresis, night time incontinence,I have suffered from it all my life I am in my early sixties now, I have recently had a triple heart bypass operation, which as meant me having to wear a pad and plastic pants 24/7, your GP could refer you to a continence nurse, who would put you a free programme where you would receive free pads for your problem, including bed pads, I buy my pvc pants from Fetaware, they sell high back pvc pants, which are good for both day and night time wear.Tell your closeest friends about your problem, and what to expect if they stay over at your place, if they laugh at you, then they arent your friends, you will meet somebody who will accept you for what you are, and not what they want you to be, so cheer up you are not alone out there, theres plenty of help and good advice around.
