Letters from Readers
I was not alone in my frustration to find answers. I received many letters from readers of my blog TrudyTriumph.com. I would like to share a few with you, with their permission, of course. Like me, they were desperate for answers.
One of the most rewarding opportunities I have as the author of the blog is receiving correspondence from people who have concerns and heartaches, as well as victories, and find solutions for living a full life. I am including several of these letters because they express many of the emotions I dealt with as I was coming to grips with my Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel. They represent the heart of this book.
Daily life is not easy with a Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel. We need to be careful, calculated, and sometimes clock-watchers. At times, we need to say “No” to a fun activity because it would just be too difficult to manage. We try not to complain because we are happy for the full life we have. These correspondences represent people who are making the best of the hand dealt to them.
Sometimes Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel are very difficult to diagnose. That is the hard part. Like me, many NB patients have trouble understanding why their incontinence started in the first place. I still do not know; many of us will never find out. I struggled for years, not realizing that my sacral nerve was compromised and, therefore, my bowel and bladder were not responding normally. My doctors were puzzled as well because my symptoms mirrored other medical problems.
