    Easier self cathing

    I am T6-7 incomplete woman recently celebrating (Ha Ha) my one year anniversary. I do self cathing every 4/6 hours depending on what I drink. I am in need of a way to cath when I have to or want to be gone from the house more than 4 hours without protective underwear. Eager to leave home for awhile. Any ideas?
