I seem to remember somewhere that if you have 'accidents' on a weekly basis, full evacuation of bladder,and difficulty controlling bladder, thus having to change clothes and wash. This then meets one of the main descriptors for support group.
Or have I read this wrongly.
I have a friend that this happens to on a weekly basis if not more. Always taking extra clothes when going out.
