    I'm always cold. I'll "sweat" more with AD symptoms and that chills me. Some days I am totally non-functional. It seems even my eyelashes "sweat".

      Thank you all for your help!
      Do you have any suggestions on what kind of depends to use? I'm worried during a transfer someone at school will see it. Can I wear underwear over them?

      I usually wear capris or jogging pants with an elastic waistband and the undergarments I still have from rehab come up past them almost to my belly button.

      I know this sounds stupid but none of my friends know about my bathroom problems and I want to keep it that way.

        Try gettng a sample pack of briefs from this website (there is a charge) and try them out. Some are lower cut than others. I know some who wear a panty girdle or figure "smoother" over their padding to make them less obvious, but of course those can be a pain to get them on and off.

          When I still had 'that time' I wore "adult pull up" briefs, just in case. It really helped.

            Hi, I have the same problems with my period. My bladder especially just goes haywire. It drives me nuts. I have found that the most effective way to get it back under control is an OTC medication called Pyridium. It is usually used by people who have UTIs, but it really calms my bladder down at that time of the month. The Pyridium keeps my bladder from spasming and spontaneously emptying, and since my bladder isn't going nuts, my bowels have less irritating them. Ask your doctor to make sure it is safe for you to take, but it is for most people and, like I said, it is over-the-counter. The generic name for Pyridium is Phenazopyridine.

              I know birth control has already been offered, but I just wanted to echo that method to try. I didn't experience diarreha but I had bad bladder spasms right before and during my period. After I got on birth control the spasms were much less frequent and severe.
              Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
