Urinary incontinence is very common among people in the United States and across the world. According to the American Urological Association’s Urology Care Foundation, about one out of two women and one out of four men experience symptoms. While urinary incontinence can be difficult to navigate, it is not something that should stop you from engaging in daily activities that make you happy and fulfilled. Here’s why you should never let urinary incontinence control your life:
1. Your Support System Is There For You
Talking with your loved ones can be a great way to start the discussion about how urinary incontinence is affecting you, but these conversations can sometimes also feel scary. Incontinence can deter you from spending time with your family because of one’s fear or internalized embarrassment associated with leakage.
However, your true support system will not make you feel embarrassed, but rather will help you navigate potentially difficult situations in public, such as locating the nearest bathroom should leakage occur. If your family is aware of your incontinence symptoms, they’ll be better equipped to lend you a shoulder to lean on and help you process any emotions you may be feeling.
2. Know Where to Find Helpful Resources
As we’ve mentioned, urinary incontinence is a common diagnosis that many people face at various milestones in their lives. That means there are tons of resources out there to help answer any questions you may have, like our Wearever blog, for example. There are plenty of other resources online, too, such as support tools by the National Association for Continence like an overactive bladder treatment tracker, learning library and more.
