Parents are confused by the ongoing bedwetting problem their children experience.
Parents are grateful to find a bedwetting specialist and often send snail mail letters, email or create a video. We are grateful for the the stories.
Here is a letter from parents who felt they had tried everything and wondered how to stop bedwetting – forever.
Dear Michael & Enuresis Treatment Center Staff,
This letter is one I never thought I’d be writing! I am thrilled to say that our son, Dan is graduating from your bedwetting program. WOW!! We are so grateful to have found a place that actually treats the bedwetting problem instead of trying to medicate it.
Our story is one of frustration and perseverance. We dealt with bed wetting for about 13 years. We tried most “treatments” consisting of nose sprays, pills, bed wetting alarms-you name it. Most of the treatments had limited success that made us very hopeful for a while-only to have them fail after a few weeks. The failure left us sad an very frustrated.
Fortunately, our son was the kind of person who didn’t let bedwetting stand in the way of going to sleepover parties or summer camp. We would prepare him the best way that we knew how and then hope for the best. We do, however, feel that the bedwetting problem had some adverse effects. It seemed to prevent him from getting a good night’s sleep. He had difficulty focusing in school and was frequently reminded by teachers to “get to work”. We asked our pediatrician about deep-sleep bed wetting and he agreed, just did not know how to treat the bedwetting problem. We needed to get to the real cause – the deep-sleep bed wetting.
Then, last February, we saw a spot on Channel 7 news featuring a little boy who had overcome his nighttime wetting. I knew right then I needed to find out more about this bedwetting method. We had our first visit and began the program officially in March. We did not know you worked with families all over the world. We were so lucky to live a few miles away from your center. Nine months later, Dan is about to graduate from the program!
He now goes to sleepover parties without the worry of wetting. No so called bedwetting nasal sprays, no DDAVP, no rubber sheet. Thank god we stopped listening to they “outgrow it” message. More importantly, he wakes up and is alert. He is attending to school work which has greatly improved. His school work is completed on time and he freely participates in the classroom. He is more rested and alert. That was the secret to the bedwetting problem…the deep sleep.
From a mother’s perspective, I am thrilled to see my son’s confidence and self esteem grow. He no longer feels like something is “wrong” with him, or that he is “different” from his friends. The treatment plan was so individualized, the support and advice we received from you, Michael, was invaluable. Hearing you rave about Dan’s progress and challenge us to that next level was very inspiring. I appreciated your encouraging comments when Dan was going on a two-week mission trip with the church youth group. We were all very concerned about the length of time he would be away. You put us at ease and gave Dan the confidence he needed to accomplish this goal.
Finally, a huge thank you to the staff at Enuresis Treatment Center for the professional and positive way you address the issue of enuresis. From our first visit, we knew that we were on a journey that would lead us to and end to bedwetting in teenagers.. to dry nights. Your encouragement helped us stay the course. We are so happy to have arrived at our destination! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
