A lifetime of incontinence

3 years ago

I am a 36 year old women, married with a professional career. I have always been outgoing and social. I am honest and open about almost everything except my OAB. I have had OAB and incontinence my whole life. I have had “accidents” in nearly every situation you can imagine from job interviews, presentations, and dates. I’ve always wondered what is wrong with me. Why wasn’t I properly potty trained? My mom took me to lots of doctors when I was young. Ive been in and off medication for it my whole life. I love the peace I’d that comes with fewer accidents but hate the side effects. Has anyone else had this their whole life?
