As PD progresses, you wake up one morning and have a new symptom. Sometimes symptoms lessen when a new one takes prominence.

Recently My bladder urgency changed for the worse when I unknowingly had a urinary track infection (UTI). No to get too graphic, but I was buying incontinence products in vast quantities and using them frequently. The sheer number of accidents were overwhelming. And I was severely depressed about the situation.

Other PD symptoms paled as I faced a life in diapers. Fortunately the UTI cleared up AND I took action to tighten my pelvic muscles. There are home use machines that an individual can buy that help women tighten the muscles near the bladder. I took a chance on one, and I am very very happy with the outcome. I am beating my incontinence. The savings I have by not buying adult diapers will more than cover the cost of the device.

My attitude has changed from despair to quiet optimism.
