One of my favorite things to do is take a cardio kickboxing class or go walking with friends. However, being 42 and overweight makes me a prime target for bladder leakage.
Nothing is more embarrassing than having this happen during my workouts. It can be triggered by a number of normal daily activities, including coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting and exercise.
Earlier this year when we were on our vacation, the kids and I got into a laughing fit and I laughed so hard — well you know the rest.
According to a survey conducted by Harris Poll, 81% of women who have experienced bladder leakage said they wanted the freedom to live life without concerns about leaks.
Let me just say that even though I did not take that survey, I wholeheartedly agree!
If you are like me, then you will be happy to learn about Depend Silhouette for women.
Back in January I did a video talking about how I was going to stop letting bladder leakage hold me back from living life. You can see that here:
I used to be so embarrassed about talking about needing something for my bladder leakage, but I have learned that it is okay. Depend has been one of best things I have allowed myself to enjoy. I am no longer afraid of talking about it, and I don’t hide the fact from others. I am able to live life freely and enjoy every single moment of it.
Knowing that I can feel confident about being out with friends, or exercising with my favorite kickboxing class without having an accident – that is the best feeling in the world to me.
Needing and wearing Depend doesn’t have to be this big awkward thing; it’s just a part of life for a surprisingly large number of people. So don’t let talking about it with your friends and family get in the way of living your best life.
