GP had thought I might have a bladder infection but truth is I've had incontinence problems for a very very long time now; since I was a child actually. I took a lot of blame-and-shame for it, but I've been rather horrified at how bad it's become in the past month. Since I'm tired of smelling faintly of wee all day, I've ordered some starter pads to get used to wearing them. I'm not at all pleased, and I will have to figure out how to speak to my partner about it, but does anyone have some incontinence tips: do I need to carry pads and wipes around? I've got a bathroom access key now too for public restrooms. Any thoughts on hydration? I've been finding I drink water and have to use the loo immediately so I subconsciously realise I gave trained myself not to drink water - I'm going to have to work on that as I am regularly so dehydrated nurses hunt to find my veins.
Tips, tricks, and a hand-hold welcome; I'm only 43, ugh.
