We have been on vacation and I knew I needed to get more Goodnights for ds 8yo.

I'm so sorry for your rough year. :(

We have epilepsy over here, the unconscious, whole body twitching, foaming at the mouth ones, but that's my DD3. She's almost 4 and wears diapers all the time.

My DS9 was in diapers at night, every night, until he was 8 when we took him out of school. Wherever he would sleep he would wet, just like your DS8!!! I took away the stress and voila. He has accidents maybe once a week, but he changes his sheets in the morning (usually after I remind him!). Now that I've registered him back in school in the fall, there's no telling what will happen... I sympathize with you for sure! Even with the diaper, it would leak through... He's a TALL kiddo. Anyways what I was trying to say is maybe it was the stress for my own DS? I don't really know.

What do you mean by "we cannot deduct it because dh is self-employed"? I'd love to know seeing as I really don't know when my DD3 will be toilet trained, etc...

Hang in there!

My NT daughter is 7 1/2 and still wears night-time diapers.

My DS is 8 and still wearing nighttime pants, despite the post a few weeks ago where I said he done with them.

I've just spent the last half hour hiding under my blanket, crying about my own AS kid, so we can cry together.

I don't specifically remember when he stopped wetting at night, but it was something like 8 or 9. The doctor wasn't worried, but mostly it was a pain. If he simply peed into the diaper, and then folded it over and placed it in the trash can when he got up, that wouldn't be so bad. But every morning, he'd take it off, and throw the smelly, peed-in thing across the room towards his trash can. His aim was good, more often than not, but the weight of it would knock the trash can over, and he wouldn't pick it up. Oh, and he would never fold the diaper up, so nearly every day, it would end up lying face down on the carpet until I picked it up. The fact that he had no nighttime bladder control wasn't a big issue, but the slobbiness was.

Anyway, I totally understand the tears, and that it's not merely about bladder control. It's everything together, isn't it?

You are not alone.

Hugs,
Evelyn

Hi I just wanted to let you know I have an almost 9 year old who isn't close to being potty trained and an 11 year old who I still use a pull up at night.

I"m so sorry you're struggling right now. Depression is a real bummer, on top of everything else that's going on. I hope the p-doc has a good idea on what to do to help you, just don't lose faith. It may take awhile, but they have really good medicines these days. One of them should help, it's just a matter of finding the right one.

We have epilepsy here and my 10 year old has had the occasional accident, he's outgrown most of it.


His med has been Trileptal since his dx at age 7 and the effects have been surprising.
