World Bedwetting Day

'Nocturnal enuresis in childhood is a condition that can and

'Take action on Tuesday 30 May by visiting the Bedwetting
Resource Centre to learn about issues currently facing bedwetting
children, their families, and treating physicians by viewing an
interview between Guy Bogaert and Konstantinos Kamperis'

I plan to celebrate virtually.

"... Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
Thy micturations are to me,
As plurdled gabbleblotchits,
On a lurgid bee,
That mordiously hath blurted out,
Its earted jurtles,
Into a rancid festering confectious organ squealer. ,..."

Damn, this should have been in that creepy poetry thread. Or maybe not.

I was under the impression that wetting the bed was part of the usual growing-up and learning to control one's body, with a significant number of children going through it and some having other issues meaning it goes on longer?
What does a drug company have to do with that?

Don't get me wrong, I am sure there is "Clinical, diagnosed, abnormal bedwetting..." but I still don't understand why anyone needs to be made aware of this?

What's next "World Pant Pooping Day?".

This was an apparently-legitimate medical event, sent to me by Elsevier because I subscribe to medical journals. Perhaps that others take it seriously would be a better reaction. The 2 fathers I know who had this problem with their children (one remarked that it fell on his son's 42nd birthday) found it amusing.

'Don't get me wrong, I am sure there is "Clinical, diagnosed, abnormal bedwetting..." but I still don't understand why anyone needs to be made aware of this?'
That it's a serious-enough problem to get this attention. I didn't know that it was. I found the title amusing, but the willingness to be frank means that it's less shameful. JAMA noted the release of a new drug for adult nocturia last week; that this conference used a colloquial term witnesses the intent to address a larger audience.

'What's next "World Pant Pooping Day?".'
If I find it in a medical journal, I may pass it along.

clearly this is about older children that are still doing it... i agree that an occasional accident is normal even for schoolkids - but if it happens every night...

oh, i didn't even see that. never clicked the link.
since bedwetting (in older children) has psychological causes in 99% of all cases, a fat lot of good drugs will do...
