Wetting Accidents in Late Teens and Young Adults

A little bit about me!

So I know not a TON of people have responded, but some of the people who have left nice messages on the final question and mentioned that it helps knowing they aren't alone with this problem. I know I've definitely felt really alone with this problem before, especially as a teenager but even now! We're made to feel like it's such a shameful secret and it can be really embarrassing, especially when you feel like you're the only person in the world still having accidents at your age. So I figured I'd share a little bit about me! As you can see in my poll description, I'm 24 years old and I've been dealing with this problem for a very long time. I started wetting the bed and wearing diapers at night when I was 11 and have done so every night since (so over half my life!) and began having problems during the day when I was 13. I first started wearing pull-ups during the day when I was 14 and was wearing either those or diapers 24/7 by the time I was 15 and still do to this day. Wearing diapers in high school was rough, but I got through it! I had a few close friends who knew and were very understanding, and I somehow managed to keep it a secret. I have two younger sisters though and they teased me pretty relentless for it. These days I still wear protection 24/7...diapers at night and either pull-ups or diapers during the day. My daytime accidents are pretty frequent, I always have at least a couple every day, and fairly often it's more than just a couple. To be honest, it's become a more frequent issue in the past year or so and my biggest fear is that I'll eventually have to give up pull-ups and wear diapers 24/7. Thanks to all those who have taken the poll and left nice messages! It helps me too knowing I'm not the only one out there dealing with incontinence.

I started my bedwetting and day wetting at 14 from a complication going thru puberty!My parents got me cloth diapers and plastic pants[aka-rubberpants]to wear to bed every night.Before bedtime,i had to lay on my bed and mom would slide the diapers under me,apply the babypowder,bring the diapers up and pin them,then i would raise up my legs and she would pull the plastic pants up my legs and over my diapers.The plastic pants were adult size and fit me blousy and crinkled under my night gown.Then i started having the daytime accidents and mom got me cloth diapers that velcroed on so it was easier to change it.My friends accepted the fact that i had to wear the diapers and plastic pants and when one or two would sleep over,they would wear my diapers and plastic pants also to support me.I wore the diapers and plastic pants in a wedding at 15 and when i was confirmed,i wore them under my white tights with my required white dress and veil.I am 19 now and my cloth diapers and plastic pants are a part of my life and i have had to make adjustments in my life to accomadate wearing them.
