Thank you soooo much everyone. Summer and Slim you are both so right. As it is...I've had to get a purse large enough to carry a diaper, wet ones and powder - so carrying items is something I'm very use to.
One thing I'm hopeful for is that I can SEE my front to clean. Trying to clean my accidents in a public restroom is close to ridiculous. How I wish they had mirrors in those stalls...so I could see the BACK of myself!
I am basically homebound...it has gotten so bad. I use to be able to 'control' somewhat with what I ate and when, but as I age (gracefully, of course) the muscles that worked with gravity...are now giving way. I am so use to wearing a diaper...I would continue that, so from what you both say, I should not have problems any worse than what I'm use to.
That is what my primary card doctor told me. He said my life would be so different. You're right Summer...it probably is people who had a healthy digestive system that are horrified. My 15 year old grand-daughter, who is familiar with me 'running away' and covering for me, when talking to people, was the one that said with no hesitation 'go for it.' She is so looking forward to when we can walk in the park again. Right now, any sort of exercise starts a bowel movement.
I am so glad I was lead to this site! It is so wonderful to be able to speak with people who aren't afraid to tell you how it is.
Thank you all again. I hope to be writing with smilies for the new year! Wow...that would be wonderful...to NOT BE the baby in the diaper for New Year's!
Thank you, new friends - I send you all peace & prayers!
