I’m 20 years old and have severe bladder incontinence. I have difficulty changing on my own and so my carer has to help. I have only recently had to change to an all on one and I feel really embarrassed having it changed. I have no feeling that I need to go and my flow is really heavy resulting in other products leaking significantly. How can I feel less embarrassed and more comfortable with having to have assistance in changing?
