Hello From Massachusetts!

Good afternoon everyone. My name's Scott. I will be 53 on January 28, 2021. I was diagnosed with urinary incontinence, due to diabetic neuropathy and high blood glucose levels, around the Fall of 2014. So, I've been managing this condition for about six years, give or take.

I found this forum via a Google search. I'd like to provide some support and some "layman's advice" regarding how I manage my incontinence. At its most basic level, my management protocol involves the daily wearing of adult diapers and booster pads, as well the application of Desitin and Nystop powder. I also have my PCA shave and groom me at least once a week, to prevent rashes and infections.

I'd be happy if any of you were to reach out to me seeking solutions to common incontinence management problems, or are needing any sort of peer support that I could provide regarding, especially, the mental and emotional aspects of dealing with incontinence.

I am a professional church organist and musician, by the way. I live alone in a nice one-bedroom apartment with my cat, Ebony. I hope to meet many of you online, and hear your stories as well. Thank you and be safe!
