I’ve always needed to pee more often than most people and with a degree of urgency. A few months ago I didn’t make it to the toilet in time and completely wet myself. Now that’s happening more and more often. I’ve started wearing pull-ups when I go out and at work but I’m paranoid I’m going to leak onto my clothes. I also have always woken several times in the night to go and a few times haven’t quite made it. Then two nights ago I was already peeing when I woke up and couldn’t stop it. Same last night. Tonight I’m wearing a pull-up to bed which feels so weird but I’m terrified of waking up and having leaked all over my bed. Any advice?
Well it’s a good job I wore the pull-up because tonight I didn’t wake up at all. Just got woken by the alarm to the sensation of a soaking wet heavy pull-up. Oh and to the overwhelming urge to go. Didn’t make it to the toilet… net result of large leak into an already soaking pull-up was urine running uncontrollably down my legs and and a wet trail leading to my bathroom. Feeling like I want to cry
Sorry to hear this is having such a huge impact on your life.
Have you heard of an all in one product? These products combine an incontinence pad with a strap or belt for additional security. If you are losing a large volume of urine at once as you state, all in ones are more reliable than pull up pants. You can purchase these through online stores such as Incontinence Supermarket.
