More than 65 million people have incontinence and it’s three times more common in women than in men, but the topic is rarely talked about. Simply google “incontinence” or “bladder leakage” and you’ll find the only information available on this topic is on medical websites – not exactly the emotional support that women (or men, for that matter) are looking for.
To help encourage people to continue living the life they want, Depend® is celebrating the personal journeys of individuals who never stopped owning their greatness and continue to live their life to the fullest every day with Depend® Underwear.
The two women below have partnered with Depend in an effort to bring the discussion to the forefront and to help women understand that bladder leakage isn’t just normal – it’s also very common.
Here is a little background on each woman:
· Suzie Haines, 45, first started experiencing incontinence while running a marathon. She had the sudden urge to use the restroom but didn’t make it in time. After that “oops” moment, she would map out the closest bathrooms everywhere she went. She didn’t really have anyone to talk to and didn’t know where to turn for help. Eventually, she started using pads, until she found Depend, which she says made all the difference – boosting her confidence and helping her feel protected all day. Today, she’s a fitness instructor, yoga enthusiast and active mom who embraces each day worry-free.
· Entrepreneur and community activist, Dyan, had always lived an energetic and fulfilling life. So when she started to experience incontinence, she did everything she could to prove to herself and her family that she could still pursue her dreams; even if it meant rushing to the bathroom more times than she’d anticipated throughout the day. After a while, Dyan was convinced that there had to be a better way to live without changing her on-the-go lifestyle. That’s when she decided to try Depend and she hasn’t looked back since. Today, she’s teaching children dance routines at her own studio and performing with her own dance group (featuring women ages 40+) at national sporting events, including the LA Clippers and LA Sparks.·
· The new and improved Depend® Real Fit, Silhouette and Silhouette Active Fit briefs were designed with you in mind, offering a new look and premium feel to help give you the confidence you need to continue living the life you want and love.
The new and improved Depend® Silhouette Active Fit briefs are awesome! The let me Own My Greatness and not have to worry about leakage away from home. My journey with incontinence began after I had my children. It got worse with each child I had. I started experiencing leakage when I laughed and even when I sneezed! Depend fit briefs allow me to dance with the kids, act crazy or even go out with friends and enjoy an evening! They are comfortable and sit right below my waist. They trap and lock in wetness and odor. I really like the comfortable cotton like fabric. I also like that no one knows I am wearing them!! Depend Silhouette Active briefs allow me to keep up with life and keep moving.
