I am 29 years old and have some advice for bed-welters. At least nine out of ten' bsd-wet- ters would like to blame their bladder or their but the problem is rarely phys- ical. It's almost always emo- tional. My parents used to fight something awful. The scream- ing was terrible. One night there was a bad accident. All five of us were put thco a children's home. My older sister stopped wetting her bed a few months later. My younger brothers and I kept on. I was spanked and made to wash the bedshsels by hand. I even had my face rubbed with the wet sheets. I was threatened .and told I would have to sleep in the bathtub with no pillows or blankets. For one week they woke me up all night long at three- hour interval. It didn't help. The bed was in the morn- ing. One day a wonderful teach- er told me that worrying and being afraid of things didn't solve problems.

A medical query from an attending physician will prob- ably be answered. A lawyer would probably be refused information or re- fsrred to the hospital's admin- istrator. A doting aunt who wants date and hour of a baby's birth for astrological refer- ence will probably be turned down politely. Even the patient himself is denied access to his records. Janet Milner says medical record librarians may hand on medical information only to an attending physician un- less they have the written consent of ths patient. Their reticence is required by pro- vincial and hospital regu- lations and by their own code of ethics.
