  1. Largest Baby Diapers?

    Something that you may not be aware of, The Pampers + sizes are not larger than the normal, i.e. 6+ are the same size as 6. The +, according to Pampers, refers to extra absorbancy. I have ran comparisons with 4 and 4+, 5 and 5+, 6 and 6+ to find about a 2-5% increase in absorbancy as compared to the non + sizes. However, the comparing 4+ to 5+ and 6+, 4+ has 10% more absorbancy than 6+ and 6% more than 5+ which is not surprising considering what Angela has informed us re design features, absorbent pad size and SAP characteristics - i.e. the smaller sizes has a slower acting SAP. I would suspect that there would be 2-5% more SAP in the + sizes. I use either Pampers 5+ or 6+ 'Baby-Dry' 'Magical Pods' as inserts for overnight use. To do same, starting from the back of the diaper, tear off the tabs and about 12mm of the plastic so I can remove the leg elastic both sides. I then tear away the elastic from the inner leg gathers - be careful with this step as not to tear the inner one-way liner either at the top/bottom or along the side. (you will only make the mistake once as it allows the SAP, when wet - gel to escape from the diaper and will stick to your skin, and a shower is the only way to effectively remove this.) Now, since the diaper now sits flat, I remove the cloth-like backing leaving the thin plastic backing. If you examine this plastic backing, where the cloth-like backing was stuck to it has torn leaving weeping slots. This allows the Pampers to weep into and the adult diaper. If you wish, you and increase the flow through of the Pampers by tearing the rear of the plastic liner. This allows an adult diaper to get fully used - i.e. up to the back. If there is any remaining elastic, it is easy to remove. Now, fold the front end of the Pampers into a point, and place between the inner leg gathers of the adult diaper. This doubles the capacity of most adult diapers, but one needs to wear plastic pants over these as when the pampers expands when wet, it will stretch the adult diaper and create leaks at the leg holes. No, the adult diaper will not leak (overflow), but will weep if you sit down when wet without protective plastic pants. If you wish, and want more absorbancy, use two Pampers 3+ or 4+ end to end. Point the rear of the rear pampers and place that under the front one. For daytime use, ensure that you fold the adult diaper (with the pamper(s) within) length ways. This will create a pocket, which will increase the absorbancy. If you feel that you want more bulk, use two of the larger sizes of pampers. As each Pamper gets wetter, it will expand and (because of the 'Magical Pods' length ways and width ways) force the adult diaper to do same. 2-3 wettings, and you will be waddling, and this diaper combination can handle a lot more - you will see that the wetness indicator on the adult diaper has not changed (since it is not wet enough), but will feel the bulk between your legs. Back on topic... Lebanon and Kuwait retailers supply some of the largest 'baby' diapers that I have found. Some are marketed as 'bedwetting diapers' and include Happies, Cuties (Size 7) , Comfees (Size 7) , Merries (Size 7 and 8) and Darlings (Size 7), and Softcare (Size 8). It seems to me that these countries are not as 'closed-minded' in some things as the Western world. I fully expect, to find larger baby diapers and greater range of adult diapers in China due to the countries unique demand for this product.
  2. Disclaimer: If you have a person in a care facility, for what I am about to say, I sincerely apologize. I have no disrespect towards you and/or your loved ones. What I am trying to state here is what is actually happening, what we see and know, but we all ignore with the blind hope that someone else will fix it. Capitalism / Smart Business - in my humble opinion - is the excuse used by companies worldwide to make money at the cost of our fellow humans, and it is turning capitalist into nothing more than a plague / virus that will eventually destroy, not only the the human race, but also the world in which we share. Worldwide, bar a few places, care facilities do as little as possible to attend to their 'patients'. These facilities are run as a for profit only business, where the costs per 'patient' to the company are reduced to a minimum while the profit per 'patient' are maximized. To do this, what one would expect as a minimum standard of care is far from being reached. There are many stories by those from the outside as a relative of a 'patient' seeing what they would class as below standard of care, but due to the minimum checking - after all, the 'patients' do not really have a vote due to mental illnesses / incapacity. Current situation Patient - non mobile - placed in diapers and catheter by nurse. Therefore, only care required is to change the diaper and leg bag 2-3 times per 24hrs. This can be done by an intern. Usually good idea to leave patient in bed. Therefore, less chance of self-injury due to slippage etc. Full knowledge of patient location. Needs only 5-10sq ft per patient = more patients per square footage. Also, ratio of unqualified person as career to patient can be higher. This equals higher profits per patient. Patient - mobile - get them confined to bed. Feeding - use utensils that mobile / non mobile can self-feed and/or have 'feeding staff' contracted per 30mins as it is calculated that a person can be feed in 5-8 min. each, therefore pay only for that time per patient. Therefore, cost her, for the company can be reduced. Costs (per patient): 1/40th Unskilled Staff; 30 Min. Intern; 1/80th Nurse / Doctor; 2min Cook; Misc. Cleaning staff, Diapers (normally charged to patient), Hostel Accommodation Charges. With a fixed charge being paid per patient from government / pension etc., the profit margin is extremely high. What we Wish the Situation to Be Patient - non mobile - placed in pull-ups and reminded to use facilities. Changed / bathed as needed. Assisted to walk etc. (This requires full-time qualified nurse care - same gender as patient (for patient dignity reasons). It also requires covered walking area / gymnasium facilities - and for intensive therapy, pool facilities. Patient - mobile - minimal nurse care and Feeding - nurse that cares for the patient (close on a 1-1 ratio) will assist in feeding as and when needed. Costs (per patient): 24 hr Nurse Care. Accommodation Charges. (Costs equate to a 5 star hotel with personal valet and butler) Misc. Cleaning Staff, Pull-ups (and diapers for night use). With a the charges being paid per patient by the patient next of kin, the profit margin can be extremely high if over-billed for each service. Best Alternative (in my opinion) Home-care by relative / I know this might annoy a few - Senicide / Euthanasia - When a person is in a situation that they need 24/7/365 care for their body to continue existing, (that is with/without machines assistance) and their brain is not involved in this at all, I would ask that my life be terminated - after all, my brain has gone... what is left is just an empty shell. In the US, capitalism is all the rage - which in some ways is 'survival of the fittest'. It is to our own detriment to support an empty shell with some hope or unsubstantiated belief that a 'miracle' will occur and bring that person back to health. Remember, the facilities that are being complained about are businesses after all. Yes, we may not like what they are doing, but we can either use our say - our vote - to force it changed, OR pay for it ourselves.
  3. Hidradenitis Supporativa

    mahleedl, what you have is, in your case, caused friction of your diaper against your skin. You know this, but the cause is the diaper is rubbing the top layer of skin, which would normally cause friction rash. In your case, probably due to your diaper being 'cloth like', in your case I do not know, it is causing your pores to become blocked. Add to this, the heat by the friction, and the associated sweat, it is an ideal breathing ground for bacteria. This is blocking your pores in this area, which is the cause for a host of problems. There is, however, a very simple solution - as many have stated - air out the area. When you can go naked and diaper free, I would strongly suggest this. This will allow the area to heal. Once it is healed, for you, an absolute must is both a antiperspirant ( not a deodorant ) and talcum powder in the area. In your case, I would insure that I coated that outside of the diaper with with powder. The antiperspirant will reduce the sweat created in this area, and the talcum powder will reduce the friction considerably. A friction rash can present as many different rashes. The core problem is that the friction between the skin and a diaper will firstly, prematurely remove ones dead skin cells. We use these to protect the new skin cells below them and allow the new skin cells to fully develop. This causes a host of problems from cells not being fully developed and therefore, not able to fully protect to open sores on the skin. The dead cells that are rubbed off become food for the myriad of bacteria that normally live on our skin, which speeds up their growth cycles, and also there impact on ones skin. Also, these dead cells can easily block our pores. Add to this that a diaper will leak despite what we do to prevent it. Urine is salt and water (plus others), and can cause skin breakdown. The best cure is prevention, so, at each change, wipe ones inner thighs with a wipe at least, allow it to air dry before putting on a fresh diaper.
  4. Am I becoming incontinent ?

    SIDincontinent, firstly, let me apologize. If you are currently happy with your medical treatment plan, your doctor and it is working in your opinion, then I suggest that you stick with it. If, however, that one of the premises (happy with treatement) (happy with doctor) (treatment is working) turns out to be false, then I suggest that you look at alternative options. It is a mistake to expect a different outcome from the same set of circumstances. As I stated earlier, comparing a foley catheter 'closed system' to an 'open system' there is equal risk of urinary tract infection. With a catheter system, there is always a higher risk of urethra infection compared to no catheter due to the lack of flushing between the catheter and the urethra compared to the urethra without a catheter. With a catheter, the infections are normally caused by poor hygine on insertion rather than bladder / ureter infections due to the foley catheter being held by the urethral sphincter (just above the green prostate gland in the attached diagram). It is possible, however unlikely for you if you have a qualified and experienced medical professional inserting the catheter, to only insert the catheter just above the urogenital diaphram (pink in the attached diagram) and expand the foley retaining bulb in the prostatic urethra. Some AB/DLs that wish to have reflex incontinence, do this - the result is the bladder fills, and as in starts to expand, the urethral sphincter will open and the person will void due to the urogenital diaphram being held open - as it defeats the normal process of closing tight the urogenital diaphram and sending signals that one needs to void. Secondly, someone doing same would atrophy the stretching ability of their bladder, severly reducing its capacity. In a short time, the bladder will loose its elasticity, and the person would have what is classed as overflow incontinence - ie their bladder would gain about 40ml urine, and they would need to void with extreme urgency. In your case, since there is, I suspect, damage to the bladder wall, the foley stops concentrated uring from attacking the bladder walls and causing pain. I would suggest diluting your urine - ie increase your water / fluid intake and increase your cranberry intake. Both will decrease the concentration of urine, and allow the bladder wall to heal.
  5. Am I becoming incontinent ?

    Protein within one urine could indicate a list of different issues. The doctor you seen, is he/she a urologist or a GP. A good urologist would look deeper, not state that you have a list of symptoms without a cure! Stating to SIDincontinent, and I also suspect that Punk18 was also told similar, that you are suffering from interstitial cystitis Wiki Description is similar to saying that you will have balance issues, itchy feet, phantom pain, lightheaddedness, and we are sorry there is nothing we can do ... after your leg has been jammed in a door and is hanging on by a thread. I strongly suggest that both of you get a second opinion. If it is the begining of bladder cancer (and I am NOT stating that it is), the symptoms you describe, plus the protien in urine is one of the very early signs. 1 Please read the Wiki Description 2 Get a second opinion - preferably from a qualified certified urologist, not your own GP. Your own GP may not have the skills / experience to deal with this considering that he/she is using terminology that was updated 2002 - 2010. There are two names for the group of symptoms interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome Normally called ICBPS OR urologic chronic pelvic pain syndrome normally called UCPPS These names have been in existance since 2007 approx., and if your doctor was up to date with his/her medical knowledge, he/she would not have made such an error.
  6. Am I becoming incontinent ?

    SIDincontinent, that is a common myth, It has no truth in it at all, which came from lazy nurses. It is easier for a nurse / medical assistant to change / empty a leg bag than to change a wet diaper - and some paitents can be taught to change / empty their own leg bag. For bed ridden patients, larger bags can be strapped to the side of the bed, and the job of changing / emptying the bag can be given to someone without medical training (ie not the nurse / medical assistant). Also, for bed ridden patients, if they need to soil, a bed pan can be supplied if need be. Most medical professionals prefer that the paitent not be in diapers as this creates extra work for the nurse / career = higher nurse to paitent ratio = higher cost = less profit. The medical industry is designed to extract the most money for the least work, where paitent care comes second, and paitent comfort, a distant third. END RANT A UTI or urinary tract infection (infection somewhere between the kidneys the end of the urethra) is caused by something preventing the dispersal of bacteria in the tract. A catheter will cause this. The urinary tract does not secrete mucus or have high acidic contents in order to kill the bacteria that migrate into it. It uses the process of voiding to flush all bacteria out of the tract. A catheter, being a plastic tube, prevents the tract getting flushed, and allows for bacteria to multiply to damaging levels in the space between the catheter and the uretethra. Methods employed to reduce the risk if bacteria are - Use an anibacterial lube when placing the catheter in the urinary tract. Sterile environment when inserting catheter Sterile catheter Sterile gloves This will reduce the risk, not eliminate altogether. It really doesn't matter what the outlet is drained into, as the flushing action of voiding will ensure that no bacteria will get inside the catheter and there for high enough to cause any problems.
  7. Am I becoming incontinent ?

    punk18, SIDincontinent, it seems to me that both of you have what is called a neurologic bladder, which means that you bladder does not empty all the way and it retains a small amount of urine. Since your excretory process has already been tripped, even if only 5ml of urine remain, as your kidneys place more urine into your bladder, it simply weeps out. The urologist prescribing foley catheters is designed to empty the remainder of urine so it does not get to concentrated / bacteria rich and create an infection is only adressing the symptom rather than the actual problem. Enlarged prostrate is just one of the many causes a bladder does not empty, and I strongly suggest that firstly, both of you create a voiding frequency & amount chart (void into a plastic measuring jug, write down the time and the amount) for at least 7 days before you both set an appointment to see a qualified medical practioner. There have been hernia cases that have caused the symptoms you both described, so be prepared to undergo a number of tests from different specialists. This is curable.
  8. Pubic Hair Removal

    Removing hair permanently is a tricky business.... and if it is done wrong, ingrowing hair / rashes etc is the result. The methods that exist are Shaving - Cutting off the hair at skin level. - No ingrowing hairs, but stubble due to the sharp cut of the hair. Hair will always regrow. Creme - Burning the hair just below the skin. - Due to the chemical nature of this, there is no sharp cut of the hair = no stubble. However, the chemical has to be strong enough to burn the hair, but weak enough not to burn the skin. Waxing - Pulling out the hair - If the root is pulled, the hair is removed permanently. However, it is more likely that the hair will break between the skin layer and the root. Ingrowing hair can occur, but is less likely due to the way the hair is broken. Waxing will eventually get all the roots, but since each waxing can only get about 20% of the roots, it is a case of years of waxing. Electrolisis - Killing the roots and pulling out the hair. This is a slow process as a needle is entered into each folicle to kill the root. Some roots will die on the first shock, others need multiple. Operators usually work on the easier to see thick hairs first. Every folicle can produce a thick hair during one of its growth cycles, so with this type of removal, the skill of the operator becomes critical - did the needle get deep enough to actually kill the folicle, or is the hair broke between the folicle and the skin = ingrowing hair. Laser - Killing the roots and pulling out the hair. As with electrollis, this is a permanent step. A laser penetrates the skin and due to optics, the laser heat will be absorbed more quickly by darker colours as opposed to lighter colours. The darker your hair is compared to your skin colour, the more effective laser light will be in killing the hair root. However, due to the cost of laser heads, some operators turn the intensity of the light down to the minimum in an effort to prolong the life of the head. As a result, the light does not kill the root and the hair will regrow. In extreme cases, the hair breaks between the root and the skin, which results in ingrowing hair. Each have their advantages, but the bottom three are the more permanent. To stop hair growth in an area, the hair has to be removed at the root. Since each hair folicle usually has 2-3 roots, this has to be done twice to three times during that growth cycle. However, if the hair breaks below the skin and the root, an ingrowing hair is usually the result. If you have to go to a hair removal clinic more than six times, it means that they are not getting the root of the hair, and the hair will always regrow. A inexperienced operator (laser / electrolisis) will cause a higher amount of pain during the hair extraction phase of the process than an experienced operator. This is cause a dead hair root puts up no resistance to a hair being removed, while a live root will be pulling at the associated nerve when the hair is pulled out. Home machines are usually the less effective, and causes more ingrowing hairs due to the inexperience of the operator. Commercial hair removal machines need highly experienced operators not due to the complexity of the machine, but more due to if the machine is used right, hair removal is permanent with only 3-5 sessions and little to no problems. Done wrong / rushed and root is remaining which means that it will regrow with a 5-10% chance of it growing straight (not ingrowing) In my opinion, the important choice is not the machine but the operator.
  9. how to start bed wetting

    When one wants to move ones hand to do a task, it is our conscious mind that wishes it but it is our subconscious that controls each and every muscle to do the task. The same exists with ones sphincters. As a result, to wet 'without control' as we wish, it is not 'without control' as it is our subconscious mind that does it. It is with control but not a concious choice. A baby does not care if everything s/he is wearing gets wet / soiled... all it does is sate a need to void. Yes, the baby will cry if cold and uncomfortable, but due to not knowing the action - result link, will not think that because it voided is the reason it is cold and uncomfortable. To convince our subconscious mind not to inform our concious mind of the need to void, and just void takes a little coaxing. The easiest way to do this is to put ourselves in thick enough absorbent diapers with plastic pants, and plastic sheeting on the bed so even if we leak, nothing will get damaged. Also, as Bettypooh stated, our adult mind creates vasopressin to reduce the production of urine. This is to enable us to stay asleep overnight. The production of any chemical is expensive, and if the mind realizes that this is not needed - ie you are wearing protection, it will stop. In simple terms, to regain subconscious control over our bladder / bowels, ignore all the signals and continue doing what you are doing whilst wearing thicker than normal diapers rather than using concious tricks to relax bladder / bowels. Yes, the first time will be difficult, but after a while, you body will revert to pre potty trained status, voiding by reflex instead of concious control. This will take a while until your subconscious mind is convinced, but once that happens, you will get the best nights sleep ever, you body will shift as it needs to to make voiding easier, and at that stage, can revert to normal sized diapers. Every other method is trying to convince your concious mind - which in reality, is not in control of anything without training.
  10. Diapers with litttle or no SAP

    Since the invention of SAP (super absorbent particles = name from P&G OR sodium polyacrylate) there are very few disposable diapers, including the swimmer diapers that don't contain SAP. The only diapers that you can be sure do not contain SAP are the cloth ones. Since you mentioned that you are fecal incontinent only, I would strongly recommend cloth (single layer) toped with a one way liner would best suit your needs. The reason for the liner is that it prevents the diaper from most of the soiling and it is also disposable. A thin cloth training pant with a stay dry liner might suit - but then you will have to address the changing of same when messy - and in a public bathroom you would almost have to strip to do same. That is why I suggest a pin on / velcro single layer pre cut cloth diaper. You could even try a flat cloth diaper and either cut it to shape, but remember to re-sew the cut edges so it does not fray or fold it so it fits without the bulk. With this, plastic pants are a must - they catch any leakage, and will mask smell. Wearing any form of diaper / underwear tends to hide ones butt crack unless the diaper/underwear has a seam there, so do not worry about being able to completely hide that - we are all different and in reality, nobody really cares what another's butt looks like. We are not dogs after all, and it is a dog that will sniff anothers butt (trying to sence if the dog is in heat).
  11. Incontinence - Cause, Myths Vs Reality

    oldwetter, you don't need to me to tell you this, but a lot of people are ashamed by the concept of needing to wear the same type of protection a chonological infant needs. Incontinence can occur for numerous reasons, and at any age. It is usually a symptom of another problem. In your case, I suspect that it could be nerve damage from your fall. As an infant, you didn't care what you wore as it was up to another to take care of you. As a partially trained toddler, when going to bed, it was you who asked your career for a nappy - and in your mind was that it kept you nice and dry overnight. As an adult, what is the difference. Diapers are just padded underware that one either washes once worn, or disposes of same. The stigma of them being a infantile object was created, as a lie, by a parent / career trying to induce their toddler not to need them. Since we, at that age, are very impressionable, the lie we believed. You, as an adult now know better, so please do not feel dishartened by your undergarments... revel in the fact. You are probably the eldest in your family... and as the saying goes ' with age comes great wisdom', so if you so desire, teach the youth around you the benifits of diapers.... and enjoy your life - and the freedom that diapers give you. - never having to queue in lines for public vial bathrooms, never having to leave a film mid way - and the list can go on and on. Life is there to be lived and enjoyed, not to hide from and regret. Regress if you wish (are you 67 years or 67 weeks old) ... and enjoy your freedom. At your age, you can get away with a lot... and people will only say - sure he is old, must be what happens when you get old.... If you are worried about smells etc, read my post re activacted charcoal and cod liver oil capsules. Think of the worst thing that could happen - and then arrange it to happen. Once that occurs, you will never ever be afraid of that. Fear in us is healthy, and has only ONE purpose - to be defeated.
  12. Become Diaper Dependant In 14 Days...

    I freely gave this information for the benefit of those wishing to achieve what a baby has from birth... and so many here try to discredit this. In the developed world, we 'train' our babies from birth to void on themselves. Other parts of the world use the Natural Potty Training methodology from birth.... and this works cause as humans we can control every muscle in our bodies even from birth. A baby does not know the causality loop...(that every action will create an equal action - i.e. when one wets oneself, the garment one is wearing will become wet, maybe cold, and maybe the bed / seat etc one is sitting in = discomfort) but still knows when it needs to void, and will shift its body to facilitate that. It will draw attention to itself for help before and after voiding. If a baby was unaware of its need to void, and/or had not got the muscle control to control its own sphincter, would it try to communicate before and after the event for help - NO. P&G, and certain medical professionals have stated for years that a baby has no bladder and/or bowel control. Over the years, this has been proven wrong. P&G advertise that a wet diaper will wake a baby. It doesn't. A baby will happily sleep in a wet diaper... and did for many centuries before disposable diapers existed. Also, it wasn't until the use of a disposable diaper, were babies allowed to poop in their diaper in some countries. If we go back far enough, we can find that babies were toilet trained at 12 months old - however, in 2016, some babies are not been trained until they are between 4 and 5... and in some places, the parents are passing on this task to the child's teacher. P&G today make diapers up to size 6+... which can fit up to a 6 year old. This is in the so called 'developed world' It might be a good idea to find out who toilet trained you - and at what age. Also, for those ABs who were brought up in cloth, were you let poop in cloth, or did someone place you on a potty / hold you over a toilet to poop? These all effect your regression to 'total bladder & bowel loss of control' We teach the child by direct action that it is ok to void on oneself. As a result, two things happen. 1- the baby will void on itself. 2 - Will ignore the signals that tells it to retain poop/pee. This second action becomes autonomic (an action without conscious control - similar to breathing). This does not state that the baby cannot control his/her breathing nor his/her voiding... just that the control is passed to subconscious mind. As a baby, this action of voiding on oneself was stored in subconscious mind before one learned the causality loop. Fear is also a learned response... and the fear of wetting ones pants / bed - or more correct, another person seeing that you are in wet pants prevents one from allowing one to 'unconsciously' void on oneself. I NEVER gave anyone a way to address this fear.... I did, however, give you a way to suppress some of this fear by putting you in a situation where either you would not leave the house for the 14 days... or if you did, you were well covered so that others could not see you in the extremely thick and bulky diapers. It was up to you to address the logistics of that situation. Simply... to void the same way a baby does, ignoring all signals and voiding when and where one feels, requires you to put your mind and body in that same state as a chronological baby - forget the causality loop, forget the fear... and sate yourself with all that you need when you need them while simultaneously ignoring all around you... as they do not matter in your baby life. The second way to void as a baby does is endure multiple elective surgeries to destroy bladder and bowel sphincters. The side effect of this is certain death due to removal of a barrier to bacteria entering your anal canal and your bladder. Finale: In the world, due to the fact that we are all different, about 4-5% of us are incontinent in the fact that we are unaware when we void - and this could be due to a birth defect or the result from an accident. The rest of us that are diaper dependent are somewhat aware of the need to void, but powerless to prevent the result and choose to wear diapers rather that wet / soil our clothing etc. I stated that to become diaper dependent within 14 days requires you to allow your subconscious to control your voiding. This is similar to learning a new basic skill, which an average person can learn with 12 hours practice. (Try to do something that you have never done... i.e write your name with your submissive hand. In about 2 hours, you will get a legible scrawl, however the more you practice, the better this will get. In 12 hours, you will have almost mastered that. That destroys the concept that it takes 3 weeks to learn a new habit. Ones ability to adapt to a new circumstance is almost instantaneously. It still takes time depending on the individual to convince ones conscious mind to accept this. Prove this to yourself. Try a new task with your eyes open. Now try the same task with your eyes closed. This time you are relying solely on your muscles and your nerves... or more correctly, your brain to control same. Your brain can do that with ease once the input from your eyes are not giving in contradicting information.) You already know how to void in a diaper (you did it for 2 years as a baby)... what is stopping you now but your unwillingness? People, please use the most powerful tool at your disposable... the one responsible for all of you... and the one that is totally unique to you... YOUR BRAIN. It is smarter that you... and will sacrifice the rest of your body to protect itself.
  13. Electronic devices?

    In earlier posts here, XenonVoid infers that he is intelligent and mature enough to be able to make all the relevant choices in creating self incontinence via electrical interuption of his sphincter control. He also trys to defend himself from direct attack for his wishes. These actions seems like the actions of a reasonable contientious person. However, in what I thought was a set of clear instructions (insert a cath, shock oneself, 4-6 hours later repeat) and the known fact of 24 hours a day (or if you so wish, 16 hours awake (approx) the simple maths of dividing 16 by 4 would answer the question without much thought. The purchase of an electric hair remover is readily available, that is unless one lives in a limited community, Him asking these questions (not the questions themselves) makes me query his ability to make such a life changing decision.
  14. Tips On Weakening The Bladder?

    What Frank123 states is slightly incorrect, and is loosing control not due to a muscle becoming tired, but rather than from the warmth from a damp diaper. Secondly, in a fully functioning excretory system, one's sphincters remain locked closed (ie under tension) and to void needs to relax of these muscles. Muscles do not get tired from relaxing, only from excertion. To defeat toilet training one needs one's mind in total agreement. This is difficult, as training has taught one to keep ones pants / diaper dry for comfort. Once the diaper is slightly wet, and there is no resultant action from the act of wetting same, it will tell the subconscious mind that it is OK to add a little more... and a little more, however we did not wet the diaper, we only leaked a little despite how soaked the diaper is. This state stays the same in our mind untill the diaper starts to leak and discomfort sets in. Training one to loose control means putting one in a situation where their diaper is only a little wet and has no hope of leaking. This means putting on a diaper that is in the same proportions as a diaper is to a baby - one that forces the typical baby waddle. The Reasons... Yes, I am aware that the baby waddle is a combination of poor balance and hip placement which changes as the child reaches 2-3 year old, but since this is one of the mechanisms that alter without our direct input, it is something the subconscious is not really aware of. The mind associates the waddle to the image of a thick bulky absorbent baby diaper who seems oblivious of the state of his/her diaper. A baby's mind is aware of the bulk and adapts to this as it knows no other. The warmth and the squishiness of the diaper reminds the baby of its time in the womb, so the baby, and the older adult, associates the diaper as an extension of the womb. As adults, we still try and recreate the warmth and security of the womb - just think of the phrase 'duvet day' and all that brings up. We can also use the pseudo link of a thick diaper. A baby's life is made up with sounds and feelings filling its senses the rustle of plastic (the plastic pants / outer of their diaper the warmth and comfort of the diaper (bulk pushing its legs apart) the padding when sitting (bulk of the diaper) the aroma of baby powder mixed with urine and/or faeces the love and touch of another as the diapers are changed - something the baby looks forward to and rapidly associates it to squishiness of a diaper and/or the relief it feels after soiling. The baby does not associate the squishiness of a wet diaper to itself voiding as there is contradicting evidence - sometimes the diaper is squishy after it feels relief (relieves itself), other times (like after a nap) it is squishy without feeling relief - or remembering it. A baby's voiding behaviour is as follows by gravity (dribbles) while standing due to internal organ pressure on bladder. by error while trying to do something and forcing muscular control - ie when learning to balance / stand / walk. by reflex while being fed to create room for food. by reflex when bladder and/or bowels contain material. by direct action when scared as part of 'fight / flight mechanism'. We can mimic all these as an adult to gain the same 'control' as a baby. All we need to do is convince our subconscious mind that it is not worth expelling the energy to keep our sphincters so tightly closed, which is easy once we convince same that the reason to keep them closed (the sole reason we allowed ourselves to be toilet trained - the numerous cold wet pants / leaking diapers = discomfort = no association to the comfort and warmth of the womb) no longer exists. Once you are diaper dependent, the size of the diaper can be reduced to be functional for containing your needs rather than also triggering the subconscious. Be careful, however, not to reduce the size below your actual need as you will then re-trigger leaks, and the associated control requirement.
  15. Considering cloth diapers

    Out of all the varied type of cloth diapers that exist (prefold, contoured, all-in-one, flat, snap on, velcro tabs) the least expensive, best quality, longer lasting are the flat ones where you will have to fold to fit. This is due to them being a square of cloth with boung edges. They are pin on and can be folded into a multiple of different shapes including thin all over except where one needs most absorbancy. Because cloth wicks, they don't need to be thick to spread the wetness - unlike disposables. Yes, it may seem a daunting learning how to fold a diaper, but after your first few tries, you will quickly become an expert, and you will save a fortune.
