Then why do I talk about Poise Impressa on my social media every chance I get? It’s because the products are meaningful to me – after seeing how they helped my grandmother during the last few years of her life. She was a very active woman with an extreme zest for life right until the end. She played bridge and golf and tennis. She liked to get her hair done once a week. She lived to 100-years-old (and 1/2) and was ordering her meals until the last day. I want to be just like her when I get older.
Bladder leakage is not just a problem for older women. 35 million women of all ages experience stress urinary continence, which can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting, and even exercise. Sometimes, it can be anything. Poise Impressa is designed to help stop leaks before they happen, and now gives women an option that helps them to stop worrying about leaks. There is a renewed sense of freedom and confidence to enjoy active, fulfilling lives.
I was thinking what my life would be like if I had bladder leakage – and not under control – and there weren’t any options available to me, or if I was too afraid to seek help and advice. I would be missing SO much. My life looks like this lately:
7:00 – 7:30: Wake up. No alarm clocks ever. It’s either a natural wake up or one of the family members.
7:30 – 8:20: Shower, help the kids get dressed, give breakfast, feed the pets, pack Scarlet’s camp lunch and backpack.
8:20 – 8:50: Drive to park and drop Scarlet off at camp.
8:50 – 9:30: Drive home and eat breakfast. Finally.
9:30 – 10:30: Walk the dog at the park!
10:30 – 11:30: Write a whole blog post.
11:30 – 12:30: Return my rented camera and lens to Fed-Ex facility in Hatfield.
1:00 – 1:45: Appointment.
1:45 – 2:00: Get a coffee for me and treat for Des!
2:00 – 2:30: Hair appointment. Stuck in chair, while Des mills about.
2:30 – 4:30: Intense play with Des, and errands.
4:30 – 5:00: Pick up Scarlet from summer camp.
5:00 – 5:30: Give the kids a half hour show and half hour of play while I catch up on all things social media – blog commenting, replying to comment, sharing posts on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook.
5:30 – 6:00: Think about and execute dinner(ish).
6:00 – 8:00: Family time.
8:00 – Bedtime: Work for me. Editing client photos, baby photos, maternity photos, personal photos. Prepping blog posts.
So as you can see, my days are squeezed tight without a lot of wiggle room for.. anything, much less embarrassment, discomfort, leakage, and the like. The fear of bladder leakage can make women cautious and fearful of certain activities, or even all activities. I get that because I have a certain degree of situational anxiety, and it’s hard to live comfortably always when you’re worrying about what might happen, rather than what IS happening. We have to do what we can to be more free.
Poise Impressa Bladder Supports do not absorb leaks – they STOP LEAKS BEFORE THEY HAPPEN. Impressa comes in three different sizes – 1, 2 or 3 – and the Sizing Kit helps you find your most comfortable and effective internal fit. Each kit includes six bladder supports, in two of each size. After you’ve found your perfect fit, it’s time to purchase the single-size pack. You can use Impressa for up to eight hours every day. I got mine at Walmart in the personal care aisle, and it couldn’t have been easier to find them. I buy more than one, to give to a friend/donate. Have you #TriedImpressa? It might be time to start!
There are true benefits of Impressa. You can live your life more freely. You can exercise. You won’t need to wear a pad if you’re wearing bladder supports. You can reclaim your favorite outdoor activity or sport for summer and fall.
