This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Always Discreet. The opinions and text are all mine.
I have never been the most outgoing person. However, when I do get in the mood to get out and take on the world, I never want anything stopping me or making me feel like I cannot do it.
Once I hit the age of 40, my life started changing. My activities and travel picked up due to my blogging career. I started increasing my amount of exercise to keep my weight at a healthy level.
My kids grew older and more social, and I even became a grandmother for the first time. Handling the changes kept me from noticing the internal changes that were happening in my body.
Minor aches and pains slowly became a part of everyday life. The same with bladder leaks. Unaware of ways to deal with it, I initially used period pads for bladder leak protection. I was so uncomfortable! I felt embarrassed in having to wear something that I was only meant to be worn once per month – every day.
These feelings of embarrassment made me fearful of fully engaging in my regular daily activities. Whenever I had to travel, I would lie awake the night before, worried about whether I would have a bladder leak on the plane. I often cancelled plans with family and friends, and even skipped out on going to the gym because of the very possibility that a leak would take place.
I felt totally isolated in my bladder leaks problem, that is, until I did my research. Turns out that bladder leaks are a normal and common experience. It happens more often than you probably think. I was assured to know that I was not alone.
I was surprised to discover that in fact, 1-in-3 women have bladder leaks. And 1-in-2 African American women over the age of 18 experience bladder leaks, yet only 1-in-9 use incontinence protection.
I also discovered a better way to safeguard myself against unexpected bladder leaks. I found that Always Discreet is a better choice for bladder leaks that period pads because they are uniquely designed for bladder leak protection. They protect in ways that period pads simply can’t.
The moment I started using Always Discreet for my bladder control leaks, I felt empowered to live my life to the fullest again! I love that the liners and pads are so thin, lightweight, and comfortable that I hardly notice I am wearing them.
Always Discreet liners and pads do much more for me than safeguard my clothing from bladder leaks with dual LeakGuard™ protection. They also shield the unpleasant odor that bladder leaks can bring. Always Discreet’s unique RapidDry™ protection absorbs urine leaks and odors in seconds, and provides continuous control. Whether it is a small trickle or a “gotta go” gush, I know that I am covered.
It is a huge relief that I no longer live in fear of shame or embarrassment! I can work out, travel, work, exercise, and even play in full confidence! I can move and go all I want without the problems associated with bladder leaks getting in the way.
Time does not stand still for anyone. I never want to miss out on another moment – or not fully live in the moment – due to changes in my body that are a natural part of life. At age 42 and beyond, I am fully committed to living fabulous and fearlessly as I continue to embrace aging gracefully.
