Sitting here watching my husband with our adorable gift from God, this amazing creation He formed, I have a secret.Â Something I just haven’t worked up the nerve to tell my husband.Â I don’t like keeping secrets from him, but honestly I’m a little embarrassed about this one.Â We’ve been married 8 years now and he has seen me at my very worst and my absolute best, he has helped me when I was ill, prayed for me, fought with and for me.Â Yet, despite all of that, I just can’t bring myself to talk to him about it.
Well, I suppose if he takes the time to read my site, he’ll know now.Â If not, then I’ve just told the world and still not told him.Â Wanna know?Â Here goes…..Â Biggest thing affecting me since the birth of my beautiful baby girl: bladder leakage.Â It’s insane!Â No one warned me that it would stay AFTER my little bundle of joy arrived.Â Guess that’s one secret kept on the low down, even in these times of fabulous search engines, immeasurable research sources and every person you run into while pregnant with their post pregnancy horror stories.Â How does that even happen?Â I don’t know, I don’t care to know, I just know, the secret is out at this Zoo!
I’m 31 years old, not yet middle aged or old at all so in my mind, bladder leakage should be something to look for somewhere toward middle age or even further.Â But no.Â It’s not. It’s here and, according to my doctor at least, it won’t be going away.Â As it turns out, more women in their 20’s have bladder leakage than those in their 80’s (though I do wonder how exactly that statistic was determined and how they managed to NOT have the issue).Â Here’s the deal, bladder leakage is not that abnormal at all it affects one in three women!
The Depend brand started a campaign two years ago to break the stigma with Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause!Â They are trying to get people to show their support for women with bladder leakage through the vast awesomeness that is social media.Â They will donate $1 for every photo and/or video shared in 2016 to help fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage. Just set it to public and tag #Underwareness.Â I, for one, would love for it to not be a stigma.Â Instead let’s focus on overcoming it and not making women like myself and perhaps you not feel humiliated anymore!Â In addition, you can visit visit www.Underwareness.com to support the cause and request free samples of Depend Silhouette Active Fit. Maybe this will be the answer to our issue
