Bedwetting Help Sought By 28 Year Old Male – Last Hope for Normal Life

I am a 28yr old male who has always struggled with the embarrassing secret  of  wetting the bed constantly at an older age. When I was younger, my parents diligently did all they could to help me overcome the problem and i can recall scores of visits to the doctors, various gizmo’s, gadgets, alarms, plans, programs, and medication, all with no long term results. In recent years, I had come to my wits end with attempting to rid myself of what I call ‘the curse’ in my life. Work trips, holidays, staying overnight at friends, families, and even girlfriends houses become a nightmare that I have tried to avoid like the plague. After seeing yet another relationship fail due to my low self esteem and fear of staying the night at a house other than my own, i decided to research the problem a little more on the internet. I was disappointed overall because most advice had already been tried and tested and failed. Doctors said I was simply 1 of those 1% in the population that had this problem and nothing could be done.

Now I have also always had a sleep problem. One that doctors have said is unusual and nothing can be done about it. One where I sleep very very deeply. So deeply in fact, that my mother used to say that the house could fall down around me and I would still sleep on. The sleeping problem has always been a separate concern for me with losing more than one job in my past due to the inability to even hear my alarm in the morning. The sleeping problem hasn’t been a great issue over the last year though as I work nights now, go straight to bed when i get home in the morning and have the luxury of plenty of time to sleep till whatever time during the day and still having time before I have to go to work. But the bedwetting remains an issue. However it has often occurred to me that the two must be related. But alas, I have not been able to to find any information on the two being related until today when I found your website. It was almost as if I had found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Everything your website speaks about is exactly spot on!!! You absolutely do know bed wetting and it’s obvious. You clearly tackle the sleeping problem first and it is clearly what affects the bedwetting as well just as I suspected. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I now have hope and must know more!

This is my last hope for a normal life. Please help me.

Kind Regards

21 Year Old Bed Wetter Finds Cure

Lorie P., R.N., Enuresis Treatment CenterI was 21 years old when i found the Enuresis Treatment Center. I felt as though a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders when i discovered their program. I had been a bedwetter my whole life and had many discouraging life experiences and doctor visits due to bed wetting. I was told that i should outgrow the problem when i reached my young adult years. At 21, shouldn’t i have outgrown my bedwetting already? When i was a child, i wet the bed heavily. As i matured, my bed wetting dissapated but i never outgrew the prblem. As i was approaching my young adult years, the problem was still lingering.

At sleepovers and overnight camps, i hid my bed wetting by wearing a big incontinence pull up. I also had to sleep on plastic, which was hot. I wouldn’t want any leaks on the mattress. I would choose to stay awake all night in fear of going to sleep, that i might wet the bed. I hated to loose my sleep at night and feeling very fatigued the whole week at camp and weekend of the sleepover. I also had many failed attempts at hiding my bed wetting. I even decided to share rooms many times with my friends at sleepovers, camp, and even college. My urine would leak through the pull up, the mattress, and would leave a nasty odor in the room. After that happened, i decided that i could not deal with this problem all of my life. I have traveled a lot with my family too and the problem was getting in the way of me wanting to go on more trips. I woke up in the morning at my home, drenched in urine with a very nasty odor due to this problem. I also woke up not feeling very rested, had to do loads of laundry, and was very upset. It would come and go.
As i reached my young adulthood, i finally had enough of my problem and wanted to find a cure for good. I went to many doctor appointments in hoping to find a cure. I was prescribed DDAVP when i was a child. It helped a little, but didn’t cure the whole problem and was also expensive medication. I was told that i would grow out of it eventually when i was older. Also, I was told this probelm was due to my deep sleep. I went to a urologist in hoping to find a cure for my problem. I was told that nothing physically was wrong with me. No luck, nothing worked. I actually wished that something physically was wrong with me, so that they could find a cure. I stopped seeing the urologist after failed attempts to cure me. My Mother, who is a Family Nurse Practioner and a Registered Nurse was even baffled at how to help me with my bed wetting issue. I was very frustrated as nothing seemed to be wrong with me and i didn’t find a cure to my problem. It was odd that doctors found me to be medically normal as i felt there was something wrong.
I went to my computer and googled bed wetting on my computer and just happened to come across the Eneuresis Treatment Center. I read stories of young adults on the webpage and felt as i was reading my own story. I called to set up a phone consultation. It was uncomfortable, at first, openly sharing my story with anyone other than my parents. As i was talking, i began to feel at ease. They told me that it was not my bladder, but my deep sleep pattern that was causing my bed wetting! It suddenly made sense. I have been a deep sleeper all of my life, i could sleep through fire alarms and really bad thunderstorms. I entered treatment for my bed wetting immediately.
I worked with treatment specialist, Lorie and can not say enough nice things about her. She had encouraging words and patience with me. It was through her help and guiadance that made me feel at ease. She helped me and so many good changes happened and then my problem was resolved! It was such a relief and to know that i never have to deal with bed wetting ever again was so liberating! This program and the center has been such a blessing in my life!
Thanks to everyone at the Eneuresis Clinic!

Why Would Goodnites Claim Bedwetting Is Untreatable?

Kimberly Clark’s July 2, promotion announcing it’s new “discreet pant to help bedwetting kids build confidence” was unforgivible.  Kimberly Clark’s motive to help itself to profit at the expense of the psychological suffering of millions of children who wet the bed, is blatant and represents the worst example of corporate behavior.

In the release, Kimberly Clark trots out Ms Jen Wilder, Goodnites brand director who states, “Many parents are unaware that bedwetting is a developmental condition that cannot be overcome through training and it affects 1 in 6 kids between the ages of 4 -12 years old”.

Declaring bedwetting untreatable justifies the use of Goodnites for children and keeps Kimberly Clark corporate coffers filled.  Ms. Wilder is blatantly lying, and she knows it; so does Kimberly Clark.  Her statement is unconscionable.

Bedwetting (enuresis) is a highly treatable disorder that can be effectively and permanently ended with a regime that addresses it’s cause – a deep sleep disorder.  Thousands of bedwetters, children and adults, have been successfully treated and have attained the REAL confidence that results from dry nights.

Goodnites are diapers, no more, no less. They are very convenient to the desperate parent trying to solve a problem.  A bedwetter wants to wake up dry, more than they want to wake up in a dry bed.  Diapers may keep the bed dry but not the bedwetter.

Imagine a seven year old child hiding the bedwetting by wearing a diaper at night, waking up to a dry bed but soaked in his/her own urine.  Now imagine having to hide the diaper and contend with the odor of urine soaking his/her body.  More terror of being discovered.

This is the “confidence” that wearing Goodnites provides to children.

Kimberly Clark should be ashamed.  The real shame is, that it isn’t.
