Good for your dad, Petal, for talking about it. That's one of the reasons we're just now starting to tell a few people. The ones who know take a poo-poo - at least your're alive and then assume you're a dribbling old fool. They wonder if you're leaking at that very moment. And then, of course, no one believes that there's a sex life or anything afterward. It's so ingrained in them that not only "thank goodness it's not me," but you poor people - your lives are ruined.
I think we're just in the beginning stages of seeing this disease move to the forefront of attention. Sorry we're on the bandwagon - but might as well do as much as we can to talk about it. We're working on that. (First, I suppose, we should tell my folks - ya think?)
