5) Have you ever peed yourself…….
So. lets be frank, I am very lucky that what I was experiencing during my illness does not happen all the time but for a whole lot of women out there it does. Did you know that six out of ten women who suffer from urinary incontinence feel like they are living with a secret ( and a huge, awful secret at that). In Canada, seven in ten women under 55 and four out of ten over 55 feel like incontinence is a BIG Secret. That is an awful stat isn’t it? Eight out of Ten Women have leakage when they cough or sneeze, so hello why is it such a bad secret?? And now really true confession I am still holding on to a dirty little secret because more times than I want to count I am racing in the house from the car, a mad dash to the bathroom after work every day, just praying I make it and most times I do but others…. so why oh why has it taken me 3/4’s of a post to be open and honest especially when i am trying to tell you it’s OK, it happens to all of us… so to try and show the world there is nothing to be ashamed of I did something really strange and weird and totally open… I had a ” Discreet” photo shoot on my front steps, lets shout it from the rooftops… there’s a ” pad” for that..
