I don't stay overnight with my girlfriend because I still wet the bed

DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE been dating a great woman for the last two months and really can see a future with her. But how do I tell her I still wet the bed?

This has been a problem since I was a child.

I’m 25 and I thought I’d grow out of it. But two or three times a week, I still wake up to soaking-wet bed sheets. It’s mortifying.

I met this woman through work and we’ve been on eight or nine dates

The few times we’ve ended up back at her place, I’ve made an excuse as to why I can’t stay the night. 

But I’m starting to run out of ideas. Is there anything I can try?
