While it is true that getting sick is an inevitable part of life, no one wants to feel unwell. The good news is that the medical industry has dramatically developed over the last centuries. People suffering from incontinence can get proper care and use quality supplies.
However, using a catheter might make some people feel embarrassed, especially if it is discovered in public. If you have the same mindset, the following ways will help you carry and store your incontinence care supplies.
