Best Bladder Help for Women when You Need it Most #ad

This article is brought to you by my partnership with Always Discreet. Please enjoy!

A year ago, I cheered that I had a bladder of steel. I would listen to friends and family discreetly discuss their incontinence issues and I would have an air of superiority that I did not experience bladder leaks. Then, we threw a party for Bee. Our home parties always include the kids’ favorite: a bounce house. Our fun house provider drops off the house the night before and picks it up the day after. Lucky us! We always get our money’s worth. We jump before and after the party. That’s when mom tries to show off her “skills”. But this time, I got a little more than expected.

A little leak. Just a little.

I quickly jumped out of the bounce house and had a slight costume change. For the first time, I got it. I understood the stories of those friends, who complain they can’t run or jump because of bladder leaks. I found out that it happens more often than I thought and I’m not alone. When I had the opportunity to spread the word about how common bladder leaks are and that the best bladder help is here, I jumped (pun intended). It’s not something to be embarrassed by or a topic to avoid. I ran out to get my first pack of protection. Since Always is my feminine brand line, I had a company that I could already rely on for the personal times. I chose Always Discreet liners for very light protection.

To protect my clothes, and my dignity, I decided to give the liners a try. I was happily impressed that even with the additional absorption, I was not self-conscious about wearing them. As I comfortably put on a liner to work out, jump rope or get into the bouncy house with my children, I am prepared for any bladder leakage. I was confident that I would not soil my clothes. (Man, I sound old-timey.) I knew I could jump and exercise without anyone knowing that I was incontinent.  I was happy to be able to play with my children, no matter the activity with the use of the Always Discreet liners.

Always Discreet product benefits:

  • Absorbency – Always Discreet has RapidDry technology that turns liquid to gel, so that Always Discreet pads can absorb 4X more than Always Ultra period pads of similar size. Always Discreet liners absorb 2X more than the leading menstrual liner.
  • Leak Guard protection – While menstrual pads have wings, Always Discreet pads have full-length Double LeakGuards™ that help stop leaks at the legs where they happen most.
  • Odor Protection – Always Discreet’s OdorLock™ technology helps trap and neutralize the odors specific to urine. That’s something menstrual pads don’t have.
  • Thinness – Always Discreet pads are up to 45% thinner than the leading incontinence brand.
  • Comfort – Always Discreet underwear has a 360 FormFit™ design with a contoured core that hugs your curves for a smooth, comfortable fit, unlike bulky adult diapers.

Always Discreet is a better choice for bladder leaks than period pads.

Did you know 1-in-3 women have bladder leaks? Or that 1-in-2 African American women 18yrs+ experience bladder leaks but only 1-in-9 use incontinence protection? Always Discreet has liners, pads, and bladder leak underwear made specifically for light to heavy bladder leaks that will protect you in a way period pads can’t.

Calling all STEM Lovers and Girl Empowerment Supporters (GLI/STEM Academy)

I love to volunteer. Thankfully, over the last five years, I’ve had the ability to do a lot of it. One of my passions is educating girls in STEAM fields: science, technology, engineering, art and math.

Even though I don’t actually work in any of those fields, I feel like I had given up on it early. My grades stayed at As and Bs throughout high school and in college (except one class) in those fields. I didn’t consider it a possibility because I didn’t know anyone else going into it. I wanted friendship and comradery and I just didn’t see it in those fields.

How I wish I made a different choice. How I wish I followed some of those passions instead of what was expected of me. What I can do is help the next generation understand that they aren’t pigeonholed into one field and they can do more than they ever dreamed.

One of the organizations that I work with regularly is the WFPBC.

The Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County

The Women’s Foundation of Palm Beach County (WFPBC) will host our 8th Annual Girls Leadership Institute & STEM Academy (GLI/STEM) twice in 2017.  The first program will be held on May 20, 2017 at Palm Beach State College in Palm Beach Gardens. An additional program day will be held in September at the Palm Beach State College campus in Belle Glade (Date TBD).

GLI/STEM

The free and interactive programs provide training and support for underserved girls in PBC.  The program is aimed at developing middle and high school girls’ leadership skills and passion in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).  We will provide this program for 300 girls in 2017 with your help.

The WFPBC is looking for companies in the STEM fields to participate in the two 2017 programs in a number of different ways. If you can help us by volunteering in one or all of the ways below or even connecting us with a company or local STEM professional you know, we’d greatly appreciate the support.

STEM Fair

We invite companies and organizations to set up a table during breakfast to provide information about the work you do.  We also ask that you have someone at the table to answer questions and speak with participants.

STEM Project Workshops

We are looking for volunteers to lead workshops. Each will guide a group of girls through a STEM-based project.  Some examples include building a bridge from food products or building a robot or designing a website.  The student groups will work with the project leaders from your company.

Women in STEM Careers Lunch Program

We are looking for women who are currently working in a STEM career to share their experience and passion with participants during the lunch hour as part of a “speed mentoring” program.  

 

STEM Follow-Up Field Trips

We are identifying local STEM activities where girls and their parents can come as a follow-up field trip in PBC.  Maybe your company can arrange a tour of your facility or you are a nature preserve or a museum with special STEM exhibits.

 

After-School Programs & Internships

We are identifying after-school STEM programs where girls can receive continuing enrichment and we also want to share STEM internship programs with the girls. 

 

Please complete this short online form https://tinyurl.com/GLISTEM2017 to share your interest in participating in the 2017 Girls Leadership Institute & STEM Academy.  You can learn more about WFPBC on our website WomensFoundationPBC.org.  If you have any further questions please contact 561-206-2319 or email Alex@WomensFoundationPBC.org.

A Trip to Ireland for You, $10,000 for a Noble Woman #SheisNoble

She Is Noble
When I was a little girl, I felt lost amongst my new family. My mother had gotten remarried and started to have children with her new husband. We also moved 30 miles away from new school, which severely limited the amount of time I could spend with my “in-school” friends.
Fourth grade was a hard transition… new school, new city and no ability to see any friends after school. My classmates had obviously been friends forever and since it was a Catholic school, they had all been in the same class for the last three years.
My saving grace, my angel, my fourth grade teacher was a God-send. I looked forward to going to her class every day because she was attentive and loving. She was inspiring, even to a young girl like me. She had gorgeous red curly hair which was often damp in the morning. I asked her about it one day and she said she swam every morning at 5 before coming to school.
I got up at 6 a.m. every day and I couldn’t imagine getting up earlier… or getting up to work out before coming out in the morning. I was in awe.
Her teaching style was patient, kind and clear. She expected the best from all of us, and made sure that we had the opportunity to showcase our strengths.  I remember our class newsletter where I was a writer and editor, and the artists drew the pictures, and others were the journalists and reporters.
I honestly can’t remember one conflict in that class between the students or the teacher and student. I don’t recall any student being sent to the principal’s office or anything being escalated.
At the end of the year, she gave me a gift, I think that it was a pair of earrings. I’m sure they weren’t expensive, but I felt so special that she had thought about me and bought me something “just because” since it wasn’t coming from my home.
A few years ago, as Facebook started reconnecting everyone, I found some friends from that class. Not only that, the classmates that were found also had very similar experiences. They loved her too. We all loved her so much, that we had a fourth grade “reunion” when she was in town. We met right across from our school at a bar that one of our classmates now owned.
That night was fantastic, about seven months pregnant with Bee, I saw people I hadn’t seen in years and we spent the evening trading stories of love, appreciation and respect.
