Hi everyone. It's been a little while since I have been on here. I've been real busy with work and everything. Anyways, I have been wetting my bed pretty much every night, and I am just sick of it. I am so embarased and angry at myself, and I really don't know what to do.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

J.R.

Hi, J.R.

What does your T say about it? Are you having any other dreams or thoughts as this is happening?

I personally would try to be as gentle with yourself as possible. As you "work" through your issues, your body will take back control.

I did have issues awhile back with wetting the bed and about 8 months ago for a short time and I was able to stop once I got to a place of peace.

Be Well,

Peace,

DJ

You might want to..um, well, maybe not WANT to, but maybe should talk to your medical doctor about it because I believe it can also be a physical condition and may be treatable.

Seems like the doctor thinks there is no help for it, says it's just going to be like this, including during the day.

Sometimes, I just don't get it.

J.R.,

There are a number of kids that come to camp that take a drug called Desmopressin.

Don't know if this might help or not. They key is really to figure out of this is an emotional or physical issue.

Other things you could try is not drinking anything after dinner. Stay away from caffeine. Stay away from drinks that are diuretics (things that make you pee like some teas).

Wish I could help more...

I had heard about that, (DDAVP); in fact, I took it when I was a kid. I don't know if it would work or not now as an adult?

Don't know, but that is something you could look into. Just an idea. Hope it works though...

Peace and love...

I didn't want to start a new topic, since this was already here. I know it's a little old, but this is new to me.

I started wetting the bed a few weeks ago. I also just started addressing my CSA about the same time. I am totally frustrated, and I feel like I'm not in control. I haven't told my T yet, but I plan to this week. I feel so vulnerable at bedtime, like I need protection. Any ideas please?

I feel your pain Tommy, I really do. It's tough because one minute you are "fine", and the next it's a living nightmare. I can't do anything or go anywhere because of it, but the only thing that's helped for me perosnally has been protction. I'd also suggest talking to your t about it and see what they think, maybe there is a way to work through it mentally as well that might help, let me know.

I think protection will help me feel safe again. But I need to talk to my T before I do. At least I stayed dry last nite.
