Last week my husband and I took a two hour trip to Mobile to visit his doctor. We go quite frequently and I always take my emergency bag but have never actually had to use it until last week. While sitting in the waiting room I felt that familiar urgent itch. PANIC. I took the bag into the small ladies room wondering all the while –can I do this? Because there were several other ladies waiting in there I was especially nervous. It was a nightmare! I had wipes, bag, flange and one eakin seal on the floor while I was crying –I’ll be out in just a minute. After what seemed like eternity, I emerged with a pile of yuck. Thankfully, everyone had given up and left the restroom leaving me alone. So I could throw all of the yuck in the garbage without being seen. I really felt proud of myself though and went back to the waiting room to wait for my husband. When he came out I jumped up and felt wet again. In my haste I hadn’t snapped the flange on correctly! Back in the restroom again. This time I just had to change the bag and throw away my underclothes. The moral of the story is- be prepared. Hopefully, I will not have another episode in the near future, but I am putting a garbage bag and another set of underclothes in my emergency bag from now on.
I'm so sorry that happened to you, but thank God you had an emergency kit! Thanks for the reminder to always keep one in my purse.
