Shantimama, we have an almost 10 bedwetter. But, we do pull-ups. She is seriously wet every night and I couldn't do cloth anymore. But, that was years ago that we made the switch. She had kidney reflux and other neurological disorder called something like diffusor sphinctor dys-a-something that caused her to not be able to void. When that got treated, she suddenly lost control of her bladder and had to relearn to stay dry. She managed that pretty well during the day, but never has figured out the nighttime thing. If we wake her around midnight, she still wakes up with a very heavy pull-up. I don't know what to do, either. We've been waiting for her to decide to want to stay dry, but she's still not ready. Fletcher brought it up with her the other day when she reminded us that she needed pull-ups that night and it was already evening. She completely fell apart at the suggestion that we get her up several times in the night. It was like she was afraid, but she couldn't describe the feeling she was having besides "anger." But we've set a date to start working on it. We'll revisit the conversation at the beginning of August and we'll have a specific plan by the end of summer. She was okay with that time line and so were we. Let me know what you decide and how it goes. And,
I think it's so important that you take care of yourself in the situation with your mom and I'm so glad to see you are. I wish there was some way for you to relieve yourself of the guilt feelings.
WTG, Nickarolaberry!!! Woohooo!
JayGee, oh no! Don't get sick! I so hope it never goes beyond the scratchy throat stage!
Bec, can't wait to hear how it goes!!
Plady, thank you for your kind words. I'm working through them in my mind...the irrational part. I know you are right, but I can't get it to my heart from my head.
1jooj, I'm excited for you. You are a great example to everyone of what happens when you take the high road. Can't wait to hear how it works out.
Have fun, Megs!
I was going to run this morning, but we slept in and I missed my window. I have to get showered now so I can get to a rehearsal in about 45 min. I'm so excited about this! I get to sing with a jazz trio tomorrow night! I have 6 songs and a couple of them are new to me. I probably told you guys about the gig I did with them back on Valentine's day. That was just two songs, though, and it was more spontaneous. They don't like to rehearse because it cuts into profits. It was terrifying and I was way too stiff. But, they called yesterday to offer me a rehearsal and I'm so relieved! I don't think I'll get a run in later today but it's probably okay. Or, maybe I can run to our evening commitment and shower at their house. I barely know these people. What would Emily Post say about showing up at their house all sweaty and jumping in their pool or asking to use their shower? Think she'd be better with that than me dripping sweat all over their floor? We'll see if it happens. It would be a long, hot run.
