Always Discreet to the Rescue!


Always Discreet to the Rescue  #sponsored #DiscreetatTarget

It's all fun and games until someone pees their pants. Especially if that someone is you. And by you, I really mean me.

Urinary incontinence isn't funny. Well, okay - sometimes it is - but I have a really warped sense of humor. And sometimes you just have to laugh about it. But you can't laugh too hard because then you'll pee your pants again. It's a vicious (but sometimes funny) circle.

There are a lot of people out there who think that it's just older women or women who have had several babies who have urinary incontinence. Not true! Sure, I'm 53, but I don't think that's really all that old (at least I tell myself that), I've only had two children - one weighed 7 lbs., 2 oz., the other weighed 6 lbs., 5.5 oz. - and both were delivered by C-section. Yet I still suffer from the sneaky ol' sneeze-n-pee. There are many different reasons that women can have bladder weakness - and 1 in 3 women over the age of 18 are affected!

Wearing light-colored clothing can cause anxiety for me, because any sneeze can end up being more than just a sneeze, and that means it's probably going to leave some evidence. I have a lot of both indoor and outdoor allergies year round, which equals a fair amount of sneezing. Fun times.

This past year, I was in physical therapy for several months to strengthen my knee and rehab my ankle after surgery. Let's face it, if you're wearing grey sweatpants in PT and you sneeze-n-pee, you can't really blame that wet spot on sweat. It's not just that it's visible - it's uncomfortable. And you don't want to worry about odor either. That is just simply unacceptable. Yuck!

Luckily for all of us random sneeze-pee-ers, Always Discreet has swooped in like a superhero to save the day. There are liners, pads, and underwear - a product that suits every need! Since I only have random, minor leaks, I prefer the ultra-thin liners. They're thin and flexible, so I have discreet incontinence protection. The OdorLock™ technology neutralizes odors instantly and keeps them neutralized. Plus the liners absorb 2X more than you need!* And my Target had the 30 packs of the ultra-thin liners on sale for $4.99, with an instant $2 off coupon on the package, bringing the price down to just $2.99!
(*Based on average US consumer usage)

With the Always Discreet liners, I don't have to worry about the sneeze-pee. And it's such a relief to not have to worry about sneezing, peeing, or hiding the evidence. I love that they come folded in a protective plastic wrap. They're the perfect size to fit in my purse so I can always have one with me, and I can use the plastic wrap for disposal, too. Thank you, Always Discreet, for saving my dignity!
