I've peed my pants just about everywhere now, my friends and family have become quite used to it.
My worst moment was probably when I took my kid to a birthday party at Menchies. Only one single bathroom that was occupied non-stop.
I made it in, but didn't get my pants all the way down. Had to push my way through 20 6-year old girls and their toney parents to grab my kid and get outta there. Kid starts screaming protest, draws full attention. I said I had a health issue and RAN.
I've peed myself on the subway train as well, thank goodness for large purses and sweaters.
I now take tolterodine (Detrol) and it works well. I've also learned that my bladder tends to flare when I'm getting sick, so at the first sign of a sneeze or throat tickle I start the pills.
The thing that works for me is a swo pronged approach
1 - Is Tamsulosin (Flomax, Diffundox). This acts to relax smooth muscle tissue (think the bladder muscles).
I get maybe 5 minutes warning instead of 30 seconds.
2 - Is a portable plastic urinal (shaped like a hospital male bed bottle).
You can use this standing between two open car doors (if you want a bit of privacy) but if nothing is visible, you do not really offend public decency. There is an adapter available for female users - but this is only practical if you arewearing a skirt,
The combination got me through a 200 mile car journey with just two stops to use the bottle.
