Reply to Have a 13 yr old son who is still wetting the bed. Looking for any advice to ...

No teenager wants to be wearing diapers to bed. I didnt either and was happy I was allowed to stop wearing them when I entered high school. Unintended consequences of course now dictated flooded sheets, blankets, pillows in the middle of the night. Getting up groggy and trying to deal with the mess and going back to sleep. I would often let the sheets dry out during the day and soak them again the next night. I couldnt even think of having a friend in my room as it now had that telltale bedwetters smell. I put myself back in diapers after about a year of dealing with the mess. I discovered that diapers really did a great job of containing the problem and it was much easier to drop a wet diaper in the wash every morning. I really dont know how to convince a teen guy to go this route but I can gurantee he'll sleep better and have a better overall outlook on things. I just treat it now as a necessary tool I need at night. I was diagnosed with a neurogenic bladder, probably since birth, that makes it impossible to control my bedwetting. The Dr. suggested surgery which "might" help. My track record with surgeries is pretty bad so Im not anxious to go under the knife for a maybe fix. I just chooses to live with it. Too bad the stigma about diapers is what it is because the reality of dealing with bedwetting any other way is far worse.
