Many thanks to Depend for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging people to #dropyourpants for #underwareness.
There’s a stigma attached to a problem that Depend has offered a solution too. There’s no reason to feel embarrassed and yet we do. In the past I have had bladder control problems. It’s not easy to deal with nor is it any fun to have. You are constantly running to the bathroom and looking for the bathroom when you are out and about. It started when I was about 38. It was incredibly embarrassing. There were ways to cope. Like if you sneezed, coughed or laughed you have to cross your legs. What I should have done was just buy myself some Depend undergarment protection. It would have made me less embarrassed and more confident. It’s silly that I wouldn’t buy them. But I didn’t. What a powerful stigma. Don’t let yourself be judged or feel judged (even when you’re not!). Have you ever tried @Depend? You won’t even know it’s there. #underwareness
Did you know that @Depend will donate $1, up to $3 million, over the next three years to the Simon Foundation for Continence and United Way for each person who participates in the #dropyourpants for #underwareness movement. Great way to give back!
So What do you wear for bladder leakage?
Depend provides a variety of discreet products that help people regain their freedom and get their lives back, including:
Depend Real Fit for Men and Silhouette for Women briefs: Look, fit and feel like real underwear and feature a cloth-like fabric for a sleek, ultra-smooth fit.
Depend Underwear with Fit-Flex protection: Features more Lycra stands for a smooth and comfortable close-to-the-body fit.
Both are great options for you when you experience bladder leaks. I love that Depend allowed us all to #dropyourpants and raise their #underwareness!
Believe it or not I finally figured out why I was having it. It was caused by something I was drinking. Diet sodas. Yes I said diet sodas. I quit drinking them and my bladder control problems have dried up! Wean yourself off the diet soda and see if it helps you too!
