probably sounds silly after 10 years with the curse ... but many (again, as Kip said, not everyone) have found some relief with hydration.

heavy hydration ... like, 8 oz every 30 minutes. yes, that's about 2 gallons in a 16 hour day. for me, i believe it reduces the frequency and the intensity. not a cure, a circumvention.

and it's nice to get up to pee instead of to dance. try it. remember to ramp up to it ... don't go drink 2 gallons right away - if you're not used to a lot of water, it can leach salts out of your body and make you pretty anxious. but if you take a day or 2 to get up to the "i need a catheter" level [smile] it might work for you.

good luck, welcome home.
