So, here goes. Never really used a forum before, but thought I’d give it a try. Anyone here experienced total embarrassment about the whole incontinence thing? When I thought of incontinence, I just thought it meant people who have no control over toileting. I didn’t realise the many different types and levels people have. Crikey, I am so confused, but too embarrassed to speak about it to anyone. Does this ever stop? Is there any light at the end of the tunnel or am I stuck with using these awful pads for ever?
Thanks for you reply. There hasn’t been any specific thing that has caused me to start with incontinence. It is just bladder. I really don’t think I could cope very well if it was bowel as well. I don’t have large accidents where I fully wee myself, but my pants are always wet and uncomfortable if I don’t wear a pad. I describe it a little bit like a tap that hasn’t been fully turned off LOL. Some how it just seems to drip quite alot through out the day. Not sure what kind this is classed as. I’m just buying the pads from the supermarket at the moment. Totally uncomfortable and very large, which makes me paranoid that people can see it. Any suggestions as to other things I could maybe try?
