Oh @mirowpl, I am so sorry - those accidents can feel so embarrassing. I've had them happen several times, and each time I just cry and cry. I especially hate when it happens when I am in the hospital because I can't get cleaned up quickly, and/or when I am c. diff. positive because it's a whole other story. One time I even had an accident in the car because we were stuck in traffic. I am so grateful my husband is so patient and not grossed out or anything. He still thinks I'm sexy, even though I don't have a sexy disease, lol.
But don't be embarrassed, please. You don't have control, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. If you could, you would, you know? Maybe wear Depends to bed for a bit or something? I did that for a while, especially during c. diff. positive times. It feels so dumb, like wearing a diaper, and I hate it, but it's much better than cleaning up a mess.
I hate when doctors are dumb. For me, it was my PCP in an office visit that said it was a gland and to go home. It was the ER doctor who freaked when he saw it and called the surgeon to do surgery within the hour.
CD, c. diff., gastroparesis, fistula
"For this thing I besought the Lord thrice that it depart from me. He said, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities; I take pleasure in infirmities, reproaches, necessities, persecutions, distresses, for when I am weak, then am I strong." 2 Cor 12:8-10
