What do you do for your Incontinence?

I’m lucky mine always happen when I’m at home.

I wear depends with a pad . I do that because if something happens I can remove the pad if needed and use another one

There are when it would be nice to just change a vowel... like “e” to an “a.”

Depends give you the security you need 🚽

I try to not drink after 8pm, and during the day, I stay close to the bathroom. However, that is not always convenient, so Depends will be it for me ~ sooner rather than later. Are they good to be worn at night as well?

My sprinting days are long gone, my friend! :-D

my sprinting is my moving as fast as I can without hurting myself. Too many, it is a snails pace, to me, it is too fast, but I do it with reason, LOL

I guess to me it all "Depends" 😂 how far I go and how long I will be gone. And I use pee pads everyday. Thin pads around the house and thicker ones if I'm on the go. I use depends on the days my body decides to go Wacko. 😊❤🌷

Lots of advice and recommended treatments on MS websites because it may be a problem getting nerve signals to-and-from the brain and bowel. I've self-cathed recently - I guess I can cross another one off my "Bucket List." A urologist can help figure out what the issue is and figure out what to do about it. I've done "Bladder" Therapy (including sticking an electrode up my anus and getting my "Pelvic floor" muscles to respond like they should - another one to cross off my "Bucket List"), Kegel exercises, "Pelvic floor" exercises.

I wear depends only when I leave the house my bowels are bad idk if that's incontinence but it sucks
