Feeling Defeated

7 months ago

I was diagnosed with OAB when I was 2. As a kids my OAB was never managed. I was constantly having accidents at school, I have never been dry at night, and I was getting UTI's several times a year. I have tried almost every medicine imaginable with no relief. At the age of 22, I decided to stop taking medicine as it didn't ease the situation. Fast forward to 25, I learned to manage my OAB very well. No UTI's, very few accidents, and having frequent dry nights. I went 2 months with no daytime or nighttime accidents. I thought I had cracked the code...Then a few weeks ago my bladder has been worse than ever. No changes in any area of my life caused this. I am feeling very upset, like I am never going to find relief for OAB.
