embarrassing moments

Well, I’ve got a few more embarrassing moments to share with you all. The other day I was doing a late-at-night Facebook live. I wanted to share about my keratin straightening I had done on my hair several days before.

I was just about to jump in the shower and wash my hair for the first time since the treatment. There I was smiling for the camera when I realized my shirt was on backwards and inside-out! All. Day. No-one said anything. What?

Seriously, I’m an expert at laughing at myself. If I weren’t, I couldn’t live with myself. I have embarrassing moments all-the-time. Even while I was writing this post, I accidentally did a YouTube live stream. That shouldn’t have been a big deal though. I mean, I was just sitting in front of the computer working on a few posts, right? Except, I picked my nose, practiced burping, and kept scratching my armpits. When I clicked over to another tab, that’s when I saw that I was supposedly live. I immediately deleted it and there was no way I was going to watch it.

Even I don’t want to see that! In my defense, it was all perfectly reasonable. Really! I’ve had a terrible cold (which is probably bronchitis) for two weeks now. I also have a head cold? I’m stuffed up and asthmatic. I couldn’t breathe,  so in addition to taking my inhaler, I tried to clear out my nose, and um….well, you get it. My boys are burping lately and it’s irritating me, so I tried to practice burping because I planned to get them back! Lastly, the armpit scratching was because I have a bug-bite. That’s all quite reasonable, isn’t it? I know. You’re just glad you’re not me!

Well, it gets worse! Now, I don’t have bladder leakage all-the-time, but it’s definitely more than I’d like! Anyway, these last couple of weeks I’ve been having coughing fits. I’m having little accidents more often than the kids. It took me a few days to realize that these little episodes were too consistent to not be wearing my trusty product. So, off to Walmart I went, because I was out of stock.

There I was, standing in line with my Poise® Impressa, when all of a sudden, I had a coughing attack! I peed my pants, just enough to where it was obvious, right there, in front of the world, (and the cashier), all while holding my Poise® Impressa in my hands.

Talk about embarrassing moments!

The cashier looked mortified and so embarrassed for me. Everyone was already staring at me because of my coughing fit. The woman in front of me said, “you can go first, honey!” Then she whispered, “it’s happens to me, too!” I paid for my purchase and a bag to hide the wet spot on my jeans, then ran to my car and cried. Eh, I only cried for a minute though. Then I laughed so hard! I thought about all the clever things I could have said in the moment, but I drew a complete blank! I could have been like, “if I’d been wearing these babies, this wouldn’t have happened!” LOL. So many things I could have said…

Sometimes I think stuff like this only happens to me. That’s not true though. Not at all! I’ve been working with Poise® since 2016. My intro post, Where’s Your Sense of Humor?  has 107K Facebook Likes/Shares. Bladder leakage is a very common problem! We should talk about it. 

Sense of Humore - Tried Impressa

Trying Poise® Impressa is easy, thanks to their sizing kit, which is your perfect starting point. It’s designed to help you quickly find your most effective and comfortable internal fit.  The Impressa sizing kit includes two bladder supports of each size. Take back your confidence and laugh-out-loud!

Poise® Impressa is available at Walmart and has really does make life so much easier, when I remember to keep them stocked!

Take advantage of these great iBotta offers right now, too! 

The Impressa bladder supports are the first over-the-counter internal product in the U.S. cleared by the FDA for the temporary management of Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Designed to reduce or stop urine leakage in women with SUI, Impressa comes in three different sizes to adapt to your unique internal shape. Once you find the right size for you with the Impressa Sizing Kit, your leaks may decrease or even stop.

Of course, results will be different for every woman, as Impressa can reduce leakage in some, stop leakage in others and may not work for some.  From the outside, they look like something you’ve seen before, but they’re amazingly different! Just make sure you begin with the sizing kit if you’ve never used them before. Don’t forget to use the coupons!
