  • One thing that is not mentioned as a cause of the Urinary Incontinence which is what I have. I am born with two extra ureters and two go to the bladder the other two bypass the bladder and I had a doctor/surgeon go in and surgically correct it. However, I still need diapers and another thing is that I am highly prone to urinary tract infections or UTI’s and they happen very often and a lot of the time, I get bladder spasms and things like that.

  • I guess this ran in my family but I am the longest lasting one, I don’t know what to do with myself even though nobody is my family gets upset with me they just expect me to clean up my messes. My dad always says he can smell it when he walks through the door and it’s embarrassing. I’ve struggled with this for 11 years but really I only started to get exhausted with it since 8 I believe. I am scared it will never stop and I won’t be able to do sleepovers or get in serious relationships when I’m older. This one issue had been tearing me to bits. Please look after yourselves and know you are wanted, don’t let things like bedwetting get in the way of doing the things you love! Things will change, things will improve, you just have to believe they will

  • I’m 10 and still seeing the bed! I just wanna stop it’s so annoying and it stinks up my room!����I just wanna stop peeling the bed!

  • The DryBuddy Flex advert is the only thing valid in this presentation. The balance of the presentation perpetuates the myths of bedwetting.
    Bedwetting in most cases is a SLEEP DISORDER!!
    To correct it you have to address the problem, not the symptom.
    Order the DryBuddy Flex system, make a commitment to work the program and in 95% of cases a positive resolution can be achieved.

  • All I want is a sleepover but noooo my bladder is just obbssed with wetting the bed and I swear to god I’m going to cut my bladder out with a pair of scissors!

But i still wanna stop bed wetting pls help

  • Tip: if you see a toilet in your dream or any source of liquid or spot you can pee or poop on, DO NOT USE IT.

    When I was younger I peed in the ocean and woke up in an ocean of pee instead.

  • Guys am also one of you,and I have had my share of pain so I created this group so we can communicate

  • Me im 12 years old and im still a bed wetter �� and my mom always mad at me when she saw my bed is wet and shes kicking me or something and said “your not a baby anymore. Why did you pee in bed again!!” And i was soo depresed its because my mom is hurting me when she saw my bed is wet. I really really want to be a normal one ����

  • Amazing. My daughter is 8 years old. She wets her bed off and on. She usually calls for chips ice before bed time. Claims her throat is usually dry

  • My parents will never listen. Theres no point of trying with them anymore. Its always because “im lazy” im a very deep sleeper and they know that because they can never wake me up. I just wish this will end soon. And im 16 so yeah it’s basically ruining my life.

  • This woman clearly has no idea what she’s talking about. She fails to mention the main cause for bed wetting. The urge to urinate is not triggering the brain to wake up. This is compounded by a tendency to sleep too soundly. Bottom line for the majority of bed wetters is they have no idea when they are wetting. They simply wake up to a wet bed after it’s too late. She says nothing about this leading me to believe she’s no expert.

  • Self esteem issues? This woman has no idea what she’s talking about. What needs to be made clear that she didn’t is that most bed wetters are not aware that they are doing so. They simply pee while asleep and wake up after it’s too late. The message sent to the brain to hold it while sleeping is not working. Compounding the problem is a sensitive bladder and a tendency to sleep too soundly which was exactly the reason I wet the bed up to age 14. I never had self esteem issues… the problem was strictly physical. so it is in most cases.

  • 15 still bed wetting, and I personally think the person who made this videois a asshole for making us buy a solution, telling us to go to are parents to buy it, like to be honest I wish my mom didnt even know I still have this problem, like didnt u get enough money from all the views on this video to satisfy yourself, and now u want us to pay u 10 more dollars for something to stop this problem. Probably doesn’t work. But most of us are embarrassed to tell are own parents what happened, then u want us to ask them to pay 10 dollars when our parents usually make fun of us about our problem.

  • I wet the bed and that day I would only drink one thing every day and i use the bathroom 24/7 then that night I still wet the bed I want to have a normal life cause my parents give me dippers and every time I go to peoples house and then I stay over I can’t ever sleep on the bed because I wet the bed and my parents don’t understand know body does
