Problem:I have a 13-year-old brother who still wets the bed most nights. I have heard some people think bedwetters are just lazy and I just want to know why. I want to talk to people who think that way. E-Mail: GWeiss2063@aol.com (He is starting to believe that he is just lazy.) Our parents don't blame him.
Solution submitted by Etta from Roseville, CA: I unfortunately do not have a solution but do know that this is a serious problem for the person involved as well as the family. IT IS NOT LAZINESS! it is a medical problem that can be treated with medication. There are many different things that can be tried. I know a few people over 25 yrs old who have this "condition." They struggled for many years longer than they needed to before they looked for the help they deserved. People do tend to look at this problem as a laziness issue. It is not! Good luck to your brother it takes courage and a good doctor to treat this. Tell him don't get discouraged there is help. Good Luck, Etta<
