My Bladder and Me: Post Two Weeks

I was going to wait until later in my experience to report again but I’m so psyched, I can’t go on that long. I’m an impatient child. I’ll admit it. I want to tell it and I want to tell it NOW!! It will be brief, but that’s better than something that goes on and on and on, right? I’m well-known for making a short story long and if I don’t watch it, I’ll be doing it again.

I haven’t made the break yet, but I’m seriously considering going without a panty liner. I’m not quite “there” yet. It’s kind of like Linus’s blanket only it’s smaller and more discreet.

My bathroom visits are becoming a little fewer but they are still pretty frequent. I’ve been waiting 10-15 minutes past when I first feel the urge to try to train my bladder to hold more and for longer periods of time. Then, instead of hurrying, I purposefully walk to the unisex room. (We haven’t had separate ones for years.)

Yesterday, I told one of the girls I was going to run to the bathroom. I thought, “That doesn’t sound right.” So I backed up and said, “I’m going to WALK to the bathroom.” That’s what’s called an “attitude adjustment”. Mind over matter.

Am I going to eventually be “cured”? Only time will tell. As of this moment, there’s been enough change to satisfy me.

    I have been back reading your posts by month and can’t find what you decided to do? I have massive incontinence when I jump on a rebounder. It’s quite distressing. I have to check out my health benefits and see if I can see a urologist. I want to have two more children and I can’t imagine the incontinence problems I’ll have. Thanks for posting!

      I’ve decided to wait for my six month checkup and see if things improve over all. I have good days and bad days currently. Hopefully things will stabilize. I have stopped rebounding since I started having severe tension headaches. I don’t know if that had anything to do with it but they have lessened since then.
