The maximum poise pads also rarely leak.
    Im the same, pain/pressure feeling at the slightest bit of urine, not to mention the tingling feeling in the urethra, grrrrr!!! I have started wearing attends pull ons level 8 when going out, I continuously void in them every 5/10mins with occasional bathroom trips too every 30 mins or so and find I do not need to change them for at least an hour or 2. I would love to wear one at night as I'm getting so fed up of getting out of bed every few minutes however scared it might make me incontinent as my body will just get used to voiding so quickly.

    Wildberrysugar is your frequency any better now?

    Just wanted to put this out there. If you use a diaper as a way to manage your symptoms, be it because you want the security of knowing you are covered encase you cant find a restroom or because you have some leaking or even if you are having a lot of leaking, you are not alone. You are not some kind of freak or odd ball. We are out there and I think it is more of a common thing then some want to admit. I ended up leaving this forum because I felt alone with my symptoms and I felt like i was getting a vibe I was not wanted. Please dont get me wrong, no one EVER was openly rude to me but there was not much talk on the subject other then people saying they never would use one.
    My point is this though, if you are reading this post because you saw the topic or did a search on the subject, know you are not alone. Yes it does not come up a lot but it does happen and I dont want anyone to feel alone or alienated for it.
