Kids and weight gain have played havoc on my body. There were days when I wondered whose skin I was wearing. Nothing worked the way it should from my emotions to my bladder.
Yes, my bladder. Stress incontinence means I pee when doing certain activities like laughing, coughing, or yoga. Not on purpose, it just happens. I’ve also noticed an increase when I’m constipated. Boy, am I sharing a lot.
A few months ago, I started working on me. I’ve lost a little weight and now exercise on a regular. I also had a serious discussion about the wee problem I’ve been having with my doctor.
Apparently, being over-weight and having kids weakens everything especially the walls that help keep pee in. Losing weight, eating better, and doing specific exercises has decreased accidents.
Nighttime is a different story. Not knowing when leaks could occur plus sleeping makes for a problem. I just want to go to sleep, confident that I won’t leak.
I found TENA® incontinence products at my local CVS. TENA has a complete line of incontinence products from liners, overnight pads, to overnight underwear.
Best of all, I don't feel uncomfortable going in a grabbing a package. It's drugstore! CVS staff is always courteous and professional. Plus, printed on the receipt is a reminder that TENA is eligible for FSA.
The overnight pads are a perfect fit for my XXL butt. I went to bed secure in the fact that the Hubs won’t know and I won’t leak.
As I strengthen my body, I work on all muscles including the ones that line my pelvic floor. I can now sneeze without peeing. And now, I’m sharing three of my favorite exercise. As a special treat, I’m modeling the poses - be kind.
