Disclosure Statement

Many thanks to Depend for sponsoring today’s story and encouraging people to #dropyourpants for #underwareness.

Drop Your Pants For Underwareness

Depend is starting the Drop Your Pants for Underwareness social movement and charitable cause.  Depend will be donated $1, up to $3 million, over the next three years to charities that advance the research, education and awareness of bladder leakage for:

-Every pant drop, photo and video shared Using #Underwareness and #DropYourPants
-Every personal video made about what Underwareness means to you that is uploaded to YouTube and tagged #Underwareness and #DropYourPants

Knowledge that bladder leakage just doesn’t happen to the old.  Over 65 million Americans experience bladder leakage, and nearly half of them under 50.  It seems it’s a secret that many don’t want to talk about.  Until now with Drop Your Pants for Underwareness – with that we have my story.

My Story with Bladder Leakage

Having only just turned 35, I wouldn’t have thought I would have had to even think about bladder leakage at all yet.  Especially not ever having had kids.

Boy was I wrong.  I had leaked a tiny bit in the past, but I thought it was just a fluke, nothing to really think about it.  I happily went on my way.

Until I got sick last month.  I was sick the whole month of September with this awful deep cough, which is when bladder leakage decided to show itself even more.  Each time I had to cough and had to pee at the same time I’d get a bit of leakage.  It was embarrassing and awful.  Am thankful it was only me at home when this happened the few times it did.

It made me wish I had some of this underwear like Depend around to use while I had that cough, cause my bladder and I were not getting along.

I can only imagine its going to get a bit worse as I age, so I am going to be prepared right away by requesting my free sample of Depend right now.  You should too, by clicking here.

      • Debbie Gibson

        I think it’s great that Jason helps you out with this stuff.

  • Savannah Miller

    Awesome photo :)! I think it is great that depends is doing this and giving back.

    • I think its great too – love that I was asked to be a part of such a great movement!

  • aprilaakre

    I have been seeing a lot of commercials on Depends lately. I love companies that give back.

    • I do as well, was more then happy to be asked to take part with it.

  • Kori

    It’s nice to see a company giving back to raise awareness for an issue that’s a lot more common place than people realize πŸ™‚

    • I agree. It wasn’t even something I paid much attention to until this year.

  • satrntgr

    That was priceless!! Love the pic!

  • Melissa Smith

    I have to say that this is such a great movement for such a taboo subject. I don’t think there’s anyone who hasn’t had bladder leakage at some point in their lives.

  • Rose Powell

    This is such a taboo topic for women, I mean the reality is, it happens, and its better to be aware and protected instead of just winging it. Since putting on weight, its been an issue for me, I try to do Kegel exercised but I’m not consistent, love companies that give back!!!!

    • So true, always better to have it then not and then be like oh my god I can’t believe that happened.

  • tara pittman

    I am glad these products are thin so people have no idea if you are using them. I am thankful after having 5 kids, I have no issues.

    • I know! I loved that they look and feel like real underwear, so you are not wearing this bulky thing underneath your clothes.

  • AnExerciseInFrugality

    Hehehe I love the photo at the top! I love that this is becoming “ok” to talk about. So many health issues are considered embarassing and taboo and then people are not able to get help or suggestions for coping. Thanks for bringing awareness to the topic!

    • It is so refreshing to be so open and honest about it. I love that Depend is supporting opening up about it.

  • Maggie C

    I love your photo! I haven’t yet experienced the joy of a cough and bladder leakage, but I’m sure it’s right around the corner.

    • Thanks! I tried to be creative with the photo. Jason was SHOCKED when I told him to drop his pants and take a picture lol

  • kristinwilkinson

    Great #dropyourpants pic! πŸ™‚

  • Danielle (Todays The Best Day)
