I created this Poise Microliner post as part of a sponsored #PoisewithSAM program from Socialstars. All opinions and accidents are strictly my own.
When I was young, I couldn’t WAIT. I thought NO MORE CRAMPS, NO MORE “that time of the month,” no more being cranky to anyone who got in my way. I should have known better. Life is NEVER as easy as it seems.
What I got in return?
A Leaky Bladder
Be Careful What you Wish For
Luckily there are fixes (although I’m not walking around pulling my skin back with my hands all day).
1. I visited a plastic surgeon
He suggested that I increase my Vitamin E intake and reduce my sun exposure. I also stepped up my use of anti-aging serums and creams, and take MUCH better care of my skin than I used to. So far, it’s holding things in place. If I need a little “help” I’ll get it (sorry, I’m not aging without a fight).
2. My weight?
I’m beginning to think this is just another one of my “excuses.” Menopausal weight gain. I have to face the facts that I’ve been post-menopausal for over 20 years. Ten years ago I was a size SIX. I just eat too much, exercise too little and sit in front of the computer writing. Yes, losing it is more difficult than it used to be, it’s a slower process, but it’s not impossible. I just need to get off my spreading behind and DO SOMETHING. I had a great time last week at the LaBlast class with Louis van Amstel and he’s sending me a DVD of the dance exercise class, so once I get it I’ll be Dancing with the Stars….at the mansion of course.
3. Drip, drip, drip.
I try as hard as I can to “hold it” but at my age it’s tough. Kegels or not, I need a little added protection. I’m not talking diapers, I just need something for those times when I laugh, jump, or just don’t quite make it in time. Thankfully, Poise Microliners are thin and absorbent enough to handle the little extra protection that I need for light bladder leakage. Poise pads are ultra thin and light, so I don’t even notice that I’m wearing them. Frankly, you don’t have to be an old post-menopausal bat like me to need a little extra protection. But I just figured I’d give those of you who are dreaming of the days when they hit menopause that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be.
