A grateful mother of 18 year old thanks CBT

Dear CBT,

I contacted CBT over a year ago when my son was a senior in high school and had been a bedwetter all his life.  Like other parents, we too had tried a number of different approaches, including DDAVP early on, but nothing worked.  Our four children were all bedwetters–two ended early between ages 5-7, and one not until age 14.  Sadly, our son was the extreme case. 

Desperate to find a solution, I came across the CBT website, read all the information and many testimonials, then had my phone consultation.  I was so relieved to find a well-established program with such a high international success rate for bedwetters of all ages that did not involve medications, invasive procedures, doctor visits, or psychobabble.  The greatest revelation was learning this condition is actually a sleep disorder, which made perfect sense.  And the greatest encouragement was that it could be treated quite naturally and effectively.

While our hope was to complete the program within 6-9 months, such a long-term problem actually took my son 15 months.  However, through much perseverance and diligence to follow the treatment and exercises, he just successfully graduated the course—three months before his 19th birthday!  This was a huge milestone, and we are so thankful for CBT and the consistent support and encouragement from our counselor Claudia.  We will highly recommend this program to anyone facing the same problem.

Bedwetting: My Hope For Help Started To Grow

Hi,

I am writing this letter to thank you the most amazing people in the world, everyone at the Center for Bedwetting Treatment in Michigan.  Thank you for giving me the ability to live a normal life like any other kid.  I was so lucky to get this opportunity of meeting you and working with you.  Your “Stop Bedwetting Program” made me realize that any problem can have a solution.

Every time I had visited doctors (pediatricians and pediatric urologist) before – and I have visited sooooo many – they always used to tell me that my bedwetting will go away when I grow up, and that I would need to take medication till it does go away.  I aways dreaded that this problem will stay with me all my life and I did not like the idea of taking drugs for it either.

When I entered your program, hope started to grow, and as improvements started, I began to have FAITH that I might really be able to get rid of my oh so disturbing problem.

My parents have helped me all my life.  My life was simply boring.  I was not able to do what I always wanted to do which was sleep over at friends or cousins or going out camping.  Whenever I did do any of these, which was very rare, it was always with worries and use of medications which I only used in such events.  It was very hard to cope with this and I always dreaded anyone knowing about the bedwetting.  Bullying is a reality here…

When we found your wonderful website, my parents and I read everything.  To tell you the truth, the letters made me realize I was not alone, and you knew how to help me.

We decided to drive to the clinic.  The first meeting with Barbara was so relaxed and it helped me calm down a little bit.  I was shy and uncomfortable at the beginning.  Lorie became our treatment advisor, and was very nice, kind, caring and helpful and explained everything.  Lorie took us step-by-step through a treatment plan that made me feel like “Wow, this is so thorough and makes so much sense.”  When the last day of treatment finally came I was ecstatic, however I felt sad at the same time.  I was going to miss talking to Lorie who helped me and with whom I shared my most embarrassing secret.

Now I am living a life of a NORMAL KID with no worries none whatsoever about wetting my bed.  I feel that your program, Lorie and Barbara gave me back my life.

I would like to send a message to al the other kids who face a problem similar to mine:  You can have a normal life just like me and like hundreds of other kids.  I hope that you will be privileged enough to have someone like Nurse Lorie help you. Thank you.

I will never be able to thank you and the Center for Bedwetting Treatment Staff enough!

Bedwetting Help – Mom Regrets Delaying Decision

Dear Bedwetting Clinic Staff,

 

My 12 year old daughter wet every night, often more than once a night.  We tried all the same “everythings” people talk about on your website. We continued to limit her night time drinking, which looking back was really terrible.  We made her wear pull-ups and put a rubber mat down.  We used medicine prescribed by her Pediatrician.  The drugs gave her headaches and she said she never felt right.  The wet nights continued.

The Pediatrician finally recommended a Urologist, who found nothing and said we should have her see a counselor, which we did.  She still wet the bed. It became apparent the medical community was uninformed regarding proper treatment of bedwetting.

My poor daughter began having “accidents” during the daytime.  This increased her embarrassment and confusion.  She kept telling us this was out of her control.  We were heartbroken and very frustrated.  I finally began researching online and found you.  I thought it was a gimmick and waited.

In my heart and soul I regret delaying help for her.  After the initial consultation with Director Leslie Miller, we knew we had found the solution.  Working with one treatment advisor was so beneficial.  Claudia was very supportive and knew exactly what was needed each step of the way.  She was knowledgable in what she was doing to treat the bedwetting problem and I am grateful to her for her guidance.  It was work for all of us and it was worth it!

It took time and money and I feel this is worth the investment because it does work and so happy with my daughter’s results.  Now she is more relaxed, outgoing and participates with her friends more.  No more secrets.  She is able to get up in time for school, way better focus during the day and has said school feels easier.  Her sleep pattern really changed and she is more rested!  I am so thankful we found you.
