Post How to talk to Love Ones About Diapers
What is the easiest way to convince your spouse it's time for diapers. This is a conversation I never thought I would have to have but my husbands Parkinson is getting worse and it would be easier on both of us if he wore diapers. We had a really rough week and I have hinted about it but he doesn't seem interested and do think he understands what I am saying. I am exhausted and really upset this weeks decline was really hard to take.
Thanks and Keep Smiling
God Bless

OK, I am a LBD patient and I am very near to needing adult diapers. Excuse me, but this is a shitty topic! My point is, humor works best. One of my friend's fathers had Alzheimer's and had to have adult diapers. He called them "His thick pants." Because he was very skinny and sitting on benches hurt. But with the adult diapers, he was comfortable sitting on the bench, hence, thick pants. What ever works.

In my case, not worrying about an accident is enough. And, I have a skinny but, so maybe I will like my thick pants also. Try to keep your sense of humor!!

Thanks Donald so nice to get a personal reply from someone who understands on a personal level. I appreciate the humor and hope my husband will realize it will make his life easier.

It's time for a relative of mine with Parkinson's to wear diapers too. It's either that or she has to be on and off the commode every 45 minutes or so. So far she'd rather do that than wear the diapers... but it doesn't leave time in the day for much else...
