Ask Poopreport: Why Won't My Mom Just Buy Some Adult Diapers Already?


A frustrated young adult writes in:

My mom is kind of incontinent. She poops herself about twice a month during the drive home. I asked her to start buying diapers, and she said she didn't need them. Um, yes she does. What can I say to her to get her to realize she should be wearing them?

P.S. She won't see a doctor about it, either.

Poor thing! She does have free will, so you can't force her to do either of those things. A doctor would possibly be a good place to start, but so many of them can be assholes as well....

Perhaps you could encourage her to type her symptoms into a search engine and do some research. She might even find some tricks for dealing with it. In any case, it would help to desensitize her to the embarrassing nature of the problem. She may not realize it, but she is most definitely not alone with her problem. However, it would be a shame if she's suffering needlessly.

Good luck!

Lead by example, FYA. Buy some Depends for yourself and run around the house wearing only them and a t-shirt. Once momma sees that you are okay with it, I am absolutely certain that Momma will follow suit.

BTW, if you're a little too cold in that outfit, I suggest putting on a bonnet and some of the ankle socks with the lace fringe. Oh, and don't forget to post pics here. We REALLY want to know how this worked out for you!

Try pooping on something she holds dear.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

BTW goose poop smells terrible.
