That my friends is confidence. Confidence. Reclaimed.
This is a sponsored campaign in partnership with Poise and Acorn Influence. Opinions (and #poiselinerlove) are my own.
I have a confession… I dribble a little. Like me, many women — as many as 1 in 3 — experience incontinence or light bladder leakage. Light bladder leakage may be triggered by laughing, sneezing, coughing, exercising, or lifting heavy objects. I have a urethral stricture, which occasionally requires a trip to the urology office to have a urethral dilitation. Not so much fun. Light bladder leakage is just a part of my life. But it doesn’t have to be an embarrassing one!
Almost two years ago, I discovered Poise Microliners at Walmart — while I’m doing my regular shopping — and they admittedly changed the way I think about LBL. Before that, I wouldn’t have dreamed of confessing that I have experience LBL. I was made fun of in elementary school for wetting my pans. NO WAY would I admit I still piddle in my panties except perhaps to my closest friends. It’s just not something you talk about, right? I don’t have to worry about it, now, though, because I can confidently do all things I wouldn’t do using just a feminine hygiene product because every outfit is accessorized with a Poise Microliner.
When my son yells, “Hey, Mommy! How high can you jump?” I can say “about this high” and show him. When my kids want me to come outside and run around with them, I can yell, “Race ya!” and not have to finish the sentence with “to the bathroom.”
I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing that two years ago. My fear that my bladder — and all that was in it — would remain grounded while the rest of me was airborne kept my feet planted on terra firma.
Now, whether I’m getting dressed, running errands, or packing for vacation, I count on Poise Microliners to keep me free from embarrassing moments. I don’t have to sit on the sidelines to prevent embarrassing moments any longer. I am able to seize more moments that matter with my kids and know that I can count on Poise Microliners to keep me dry and comfortable.
