I am not incontinent but I usually cannot go more than a couple of hours before going to the bathroom and this interval is gradually getting shorter. Now in some situations, like traffic jams, I get scared that I will not be able to reach a bathroom in time and I then get anxiety attacks. This has led me to avoid such situations as much as I can but they still occur from time to time. Often, once the situation is past, the anxiety and urge vanish. I am at a point now where I don’t know if I could go through such situations if I was confident that I wouldn’t feel an urge to go to the bathroom or if I would still feel anxious. I want to try wearing diapers and confront such situations, to see if the anxiety is still present knowing that I have a protection against accidents. Does anyone have similar feelings or advice to share?
I am incontinent following bladder cancer. Being wet in public is always embarrassing. It has happened to me several times and will continue to do so. Most forms of pads do the job. Most people won’t know you are wearing them. I use the Lloyds on line service “ better life “ If you are wet in public don’t panic . People genuinely don’t care. Remember how you would react if you saw someone wet themselves? I have experienced both. How you feel if you witnessed an accident is how they would feel if they saw you wet, best wishes
