Ok, I'm incredibly grateful for this thread because.... DS is gearing up for another "episode."
It was nice to know I could come here and vent.
What's more, I know the exact trigger of this one. DS has been enjoying a "pee NOT often period" for some weeks now. Last Sunday, he had a friend over and they were having such a good time that he didn't go as often as he should have an "nearly" had an accident. It was enough to get the ball rolling. This is definitely a stress thing for him, but more "I need to take care of myself" before I can move on, start a project, continue a project, go on a walk, read a book, watch a program, etc. This is VERY much ME. I'm the kind of person who needs the house tidied and all things put away at the end of the night if I'm fully able to enjoy my "me time." I sometimes release this way of thinking and it's oh so liberating but for the most part, I must have things in place to "relax" and this is in other parts of my life as well. I'm an obsessive planner, want all things taken care of before *enter event here.* Man, you should have seen me before DS was born. I was a maniac!
In the case of peeing however, DS takes it to a whole new level.
I don't know if anyone will chime in again on the thread, but it was nice to know it was here to talk things through with myself as we step into another few weeks (or months?) of "I pee freely." And as luck would have it, we're going on vacation next week--a week in a house with two other families. Well, at least this time I can offer the condition name!
The best to all, hope you're all fairing well!
