suffer with heavy urge incontinence and bowel problems since I was a child I have cut down on my caffeine I’m on medication and under the hospital I wear Nappies 24/7 as i can’t make to the toilet, my next stage Is properly have a botox injection to relax the bladder my fear is if its too relaxed I might it have to use a catheter for bit if the botox don’t work then I might have to use a catheter for a long term . I have autism living independently but I have support and I have a carer see me and takes me out when I not up to driving I suffer a great deal of anxiety and get anxious, headaches a asistigmasism a lot so wear glasses permanently and I get very overwhelmed and emotional when me and my carer are in busy places he makes sure that I need the bathroom disabled toilet as I sometimes need help or reminding of my personal hygiene like not washing problem especially if I had accident in my nappy on my bad day as I have them a lot. On the whole I try keep busy I do drive but I have to plan my journeys especially if I plan a long journey as I get very anxious my bladder will implode its goes on my car seat I don’t want it ,as im scared people will think different reason I wear Nappies, Is to avoid embrassment like if staying night at friend or family or a hotel adlest I feel secure and safe without being questioned, i know its sounds bulky making me feel I’m lazy i do my absolute best to get to the toilet when I can and when im out in a town public toilets are shut I have to ask a pub or cafe to use disabled toilet for that reason, i have im too scared ask and with the bladder or bowel urge warning I got then its too late when I out with my carer in his car he puts a cover on front seat for me when he takes me out. I try ad’and do things for myself but it can be a struggle I don’t give up, So my question is this is it silly for me to wear Nappies? as it might have to permanent.
Thank you for your contribution and valuable input. Explaining what you have to go through is valuable as others reading the forum are probably facing the same problems you do on a daily basis.
Wearing nappies is not a matter of it being silly or not. It is a matter of finding a solution (temporary or not) to a problem.
Let us know how botox injections work as people here will be quite interested to see if this a technique worth considering for themselves.
We wish you all the very best.
