Natural help for bladder issues

I've developed what is for me a mostly-annoying heightened sense of having urine in my bladder. It's like my bladder muscle says "hey guess what, you could pee right now if you wanted to!" even though I don't want to, and don't really need to - but it feels like I could. The frequency is annoying.

MS has changed me

I realised this today. Ok so I knew it all along - all life events do this. But I am a shadow of my former self.

I have no shine, no bubbles left. I feel so isolated and I have been on my own for a long time now. I can't see how I will ever get into a relationship when I feel like a wreck. I want the old me back but I fear ...
