Bedwetter Boyfriend

There always seem to be ads on the side of CafeMom for goodnights, and it seems like every couple of months I'll run across a post about a mom who is just totally frustrated with her child's bedwetting.  The advice offered seems to be one of two things, either exceptionally cruel treatment to try to get the child to stop, or telling her that the kid will eventually grow out of it. 

Well, the kid won't always eventually grow out of it.  My boyfriend is well into adulthood and never has.  He's wet the bed a few times a week for his entire life, and still does.  I don't like getting peed on, so he wears adult diapers to bed. 

But you know what, I kind of think it's cute! 

 

*ETA - Yes, he has been to many doctors.  He doesn't have any physical problems, he just doesn't wake up when his bladder gets full, and has a really hard time being woken in the middle of the night for anything really. 

**Second Edit - He has been to doctors.  He has been to therapists.  He does have a sleep issue, but is healthy except for this "problem".  Otherwise he is a very normal, successul man.  He's a great guy, strong, into sports, coroporate management job, helpful around the house, all those normal things.  But he wets the bed and wears diapers for it at night, and I've learned to enjoy it.  It's intimate and the fact that it's a "secret" that only I really know about him makes it kind of fun.

Well that is not normal and he should have seen a dtr. by the time he hit puberty and they could fix the issue.

o.O....

 Yes, but the "solutions" either are a pill that causes liver damage if used long term, or surgery that would make him impotent.  Neither seems particularly worth it.
