    HI all,

    The weird thing is I started wettting the bed as an adult. In the last 5 nights I have wet the bed 3 or 4 times. My husband is really concerned about this.

    What is going on?

    HELP!

    Are u waking up right after it happens? if so what feelings are you having? Does your husband notice you moving around before it happens? I only ask because I have on two different occasions wet myself as an adult but with both occasions I had a seizure. This may not be the reason but I would take down any information you recall about when it happens and maybe even the food you are having or things you are doing on those days and talk to your doctor.

    I already do a journal and EVERYTHING goes in it and he gets it everytime I fly back to the mainland.

    I am not sure what is causing it. Could be a sz. but not a T/C. THere are other szs that can casue that bu t I hate tio have to weat adult diapers at almost 40 (july 12).

    I generally use them for heavy bleeding during my menses so I don't have to change as often.....but to bed?

    Nancy, I Hope you go see a DR soon! It may or may not be seizures! Your meds may have affected one of your organs. Or you may have an infection! Either way, you need to let a Dr Know what is happening! A GP will do for now!

    You mite hate the Idea of wearing an Adult Diaper at nite, but, it sure as heck beats having to change sheets 2 or more times a nite. Also, try not drinking Anything at least an hr or 2 B4 bedtime.

    As to your previous post about broken ankles, Yes, you told us. HUGS!

    Love Candi
