"If I could do that I wouldn't be here"

I just wanted to share my story!
When you are unable to control your blaadder why on earth do they ask you to come with a full bladder? If you could do this you wouldn't be asking for their help!
Also they ask you to fill in numerous frequncy volume charts, you fill them in diligently - so that no one looks at them, they just get filed! No looking through them with the patient to see how they can improve the patient's situation.
Retesting is done with urodynamics when there is no evidence that they are effective in picking up problems anyway.
Residual volumes taken, told patient how much - then writes them down incorectly.
Also it doesn't seem to be a problem having higher residual volumes than the average functional bladder capacity...
Come on, this is crazy. Having a permanent feeling of wanting to go to the loo considered not to be a problem? Shall I go on, or just slit my wrists now? My experience was completely and utterly rubbish.
