My brother is 33 years old and has wet the bed since a child. He wets about 4 or 5 times a week. He is very embarrassed by this and will not go to a doctor. His wife has asked for my help. How can I get help for him? He is very angry over this drinks alot and has a bad temper as well. But I seem to think is all because of the bed wetting. He doesn't leak during the day or have problems during the time he is awake. Only when he is asleep. Please send info to help!!!!!!!!!
