#DropYourPants for #Underwareness with Depend

This post is sponsored by Depend. Many thanks for encouraging people to #DropYourPants for #Underwareness!

I honestly can't believe I'm writing about this on my blog, but in the spirit of being candid...I suffer from bladder leakage.

Looking back, I have dealt with this since middle school, but I never really realized that that's what it was until I was pregnant with Ewan. I remember going to a jazz band competition when I was a freshman in high school and going over to talk to the 8th graders from my middle school and one of them telling me to go away because I always smell like pee.

Can we say embarrassing?

As I got older, I learned to go to the bathroom the second I got the urge and to make sure I stayed there a little longer than necessary to help make sure I didn't "leak" even though that didn't always work.

Then I got pregnant with Ewan and seemed to have a problem every time I coughed, sneezed, laughed or even bent over. After he was born, it got better until I was pregnant with Cecily and it started all over again. After she was born? Forget it. It wasn't a little leak, it was more like a flood anytime I moved the wrong way. I wound up wearing pads as bladder leakage protection for about two months and it even got to the point where my ob and I discussed surgery to help. While it has gotten better since then, I still have issues on occasion.

Definitely not something you want to be dealing with at the age of 32!

So you can imagine how excited I am that Depend will donate $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; and
  • Every personal video made about what Underwareness means to you that is uploaded to YouTube and tagged #Underwareness and #DropYourPants
I know that there is such a stigma about young people having to deal with this, but Depend actually provides a variety of bladder leakage protection that can help you regain your freedom and get your life back.
