Live leak free like me with Depend Silhouette Active Fit
I have been married for 25 years, am a mother of two sons in college and have a full time job in Corporate America, I lead a very busy and active lifestyle. I can’t let a little bladder leakage stop me from from doing what I need to do; whether it’s traveling long distances on the weekend or just commuting back and forth to work on a daily basis, and thanks to Depend Silhouette Active Fit I can live leak free!
I’ve had an overactive bladder my entire life, even as a young girl I was constantly running back and forth to the bathroom. It had gotten to the point that my grandmother needed to write notes to the teachers advising them of such. They thought that whenever I raised my hand requesting permission to go it was because I was just trying to get out of class.
As I aged, had children and then a surgical procedure in 2009, my bladder became weaker. My daily commute is 3 hours so I have to time myself before drinking that first cup of coffee…praying that there are no major traffic tie-ups. I also keep an extra Depend Silhouette Active Fit in my purse just in case “pee happens”.
I can’t have a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, instead I must wait until there is less than 30 minutes of travel time remaining. I wish I could take just a sip, but I can’t…to simply cross my legs and pray that my bladder cooperates is not an option.
In the afternoons, the cut off time for drinking any beverage is 3:00 p.m., hours before I begin my evening commute home. In addition to my full time job I also teach Blogging and Social Media classes as well as present at various workshops and seminars throughout the state of Delaware. In these instances I definitely have to limit my liquid intake or not drink at all to ensure my bladder is empty before the sessions begin. I would hate to have to run out in the middle of one to use the restroom.
At work, when I have to go…I have to go…there is no swirling in my chair. Oftentimes, I’ve had to put callers on hold or simply hung up on them and rushed to the ladies room which fortunately isn’t far from my office. When attending local events I make sure that I know where all the restrooms are located; I’ve even used a men’s bathroom (empty of course) because the lines for the ladies’ were too long.
Being over the age of 50 isn’t a mandate for having a leaking bladder, as a matter of fact a few of my younger blog followers have also experienced bladder leakage, either from coughing, laughing or sneezing too hard. They initially found it to be embarrassing but have since come to realize that ‘pee happens’ and that they are not alone because bladder leakage affects over 51 million people both men and women.
Throughout the years I have tried various types of pads but the Depend Silhouette Active Fit are by far much more comfortable than any of them.
When I purchased my first box of Depend Silhouette Active Fit from Walmart, I was a bit apprehensive about wearing them. I thought that they would be big and bulky and very noticeable under my clothing, even my husband gave me a look like “REALLY!”
But once I put them on, I found them to be very comfortable, they didn’t ride up my leg and there were no panty lines which is a definite plus. I wear dresses and skirts to work everyday and jeggings on the weekends and you can’t see a thing, I am still styling and profiling in my OOTD blog posts.
The Depend Silhouette Active Fit not only gave me confidence and comfort during my long flights from Philly to California, but I even felt sexy strolling through the airports. I can honestly say, that I love the Depend Silhouette Active Fit because they contour to my body, shapes my curves and come in my favorite lingerie color, black!
