bed wetting

DEAR ABBY,

After reading the letter from "Desperate Mom", whose 20-year-old son still wets the bed, I was compelled to write.

Since her son has seen doctors and tried medications and they have had no positive results, maybe she should do what I did. I took my 15-year-old twin sons (both daily bed-wetters) to a chiropractor, and within a month, both boys were completely cured of their bed-wetting. Regular medical doctors could not help them.

As this chiropractor explained it to me, there is a certain part of the spinal column that regulates the bladder - I can't explain it very well - but all I can say is it worked, which meant everything in the world to me and my boys. These kids couldn't go to camp or sleep over at a friend's house because of their terrible problem, and I was a slave to the washing machine, doing those bedsheets and blankets every day.

I don't want to embarrass my boys or the medical doctors in my community, so if you use this letter in your column, just sign me ……

DEAR TRUE BELIEVER:

I believe you. I have several hundred letters bearing the same message concerning chiropractors. I am well aware that some in the medical profession will criticize me for giving what sounds like a "commercial" for chiropractors - the "stepchildren" of the medical profession - but I would be less than honest if I did not publish your letter.
