    Hi Skylerdiapered, it is very appropriate to want not a potty but a commode for your room for two reasons: one, to make it easier for you to get to the toilet in time especially if you are having to share your bathroom, and two: for your own privacy so you don't feel rushed and have time and privacy to clean and change yourself when necessary, and also for your dignity.  I understand your problem as I also suffer from both bladder and bowel problems due to bowel prolapse and detrusor instability.  So go ahead and ask for a commode.
