Incontinence?!

Yep, at the ripe old age of 43, I’ve got it. It may sound funny, but it’s mostly whenever I hear or see water, I feel like I have to go to the bathroom, like when I run the sink or the shower. I’ve wet my pants a couple of times, luckily when I’ve been at home.

I talked it over with my primary physician and she says it could be scar tissue from when I gave birth to Tyler. I had a stage three episiotomy tear. It also can be related to my Osteoporosis. I asked her about medication for it and she said they have a lot of side effects. She told me that they actually have physical therapy for the pelvic floor

I don’t know if I am up for PT of my lady bits. I’m thinking of just buying those pads.

Do you have incontinence? What are you doing about it?

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
