Being a teenager can be a stressful time in life. There is pressure to fit in, prepare to enter college, go to prom, learn to drive. Now imagine if you had to tell any of the opposite sex that you have to wear diapers and plastic pants because you are still soaking in the bed?
Teenagers can be very cruel when it comes to people being different. I think it is important for teenagers to be able to talk to other people with similar problems. There are many online support groups for various health issues and teens suffering from bedwetting should take advantage of the many online care resources.
You can also start an online support group if you want. Many older children, adolescents, teenagers and adults handle bed wetting every night so there are many people who would be interested if you decide to start a bedwetting service group. If you don't personally feel like starting an online support team for teenagers suffering from bedwetting, you can do a Google search for incontinence support groups and forums. Bed wetting is a very common problem so it should not be difficult to find a person you can talk about about this problem. There are also organizations that specialize in spreading information about incontinence. Two of the major organizations dealing with incontinence are the Simon Foundation for Continence and the National Association for Continence. These organizations should be able to provide you with information on support groups for incontinence.
I think it would help if teenage stars (as well as adult celebrities) started talking about topics like bedwetting – it would make it less taboo.
Right now I want to talk about a teenager's experience with wearing cloth diapers and plastic pants. This person felt extremely self-conscious about wearing the clothes. There are several aspects that made him feel darling – the majority of the diapers between the legs, the safety pins and the rippling sounds of the plastic pants. I thought I would talk a bit because it is possible that many teenagers have similar feelings when it comes to wearing diapers and plastic pants for bed wetting. I think in this case it is possible to see the glass as half full. For example, instead of looking at these attributes in a negative way, one can see them in a positive way. Instead of considering the majority of the diapers as a bad thing, a person can see them in a positive way – thicker diapers are more absorbent and therefore provide better protection.
This in turn will make the wearer feel more comfortable and safe. When it comes to the plastic pants, it should be stressed against the teenage years that some plastic pants and disposable diapers make a rusty sound. Although many people are self-aware of this crackling sound, adolescents should be sure that as the product is worn only at night, it should not be a problem. But if the child or teens share a bedroom with another sibling, they may have some misbehavior about this. If they share a room with another sibling, the parents do not have to say to siblings on some uncertain terms that if they are fun with bed wetting or diapers and plastic pants, they will be punished. Finally, as far as the pins are concerned, these should not be seen differently from other methods of attaching clothes such as buttons, zippers or snaps. I hope it helps other teens who can feel embarrassed about having diapers and plastic pants at night.
I also think it is important to be able to trust people about this problem, whether a family member or relative, teacher or friend. Sometimes it can be good to talk to people. It is important to be able to assess the depth and quality of a person's friendship. There are some people who are real compassion and understanding. These people are very accepting of others' problems and they are easy to confirm. If you feel like you have friends of this type and if you have a hard time getting along with wearing diapers in bed then you might want to consider discussing this with them. It is important to remember one thing – there are plenty of people of all ages who soak in the bed so the next time you get ready for the bed and put on diapers and plastic pants, keep that in mind!
