This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Poise, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #cleanandfreshswitch http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.
My ultimate fantasy would be to rocket into outer space or climb to the peak of Mount Everest. Sadly these are two things my out of shape, overweight, middle aged, post childbirth body is never going to achieve. Yet, I am still a bit of thrill seeker. My bucket list has seen the likes of sky diving and white water rafting, both more achievable goals for this out of shape old body of mine. And thrills of late have been found on some of my favorite amusement park roller coasters.
I dream of adventure.
I love those dips, drops, spins, loops, twirls, and fast speeds you get on a coasters. I love screaming my head off during the whole ride. What is it that makes being scared half out of my mind so much fun? A few years ago, my thrill seeking adventures might have come to a halt if it weren’t for an assist from Poise.
Behold my standard coaster face. Mouth wide open, screaming insanely. I’m sure I’ve caught a fly or two over the years. Apologies for the poor quality of the picture. I’m one of THOSE people who won’t pay for a high res image from the park, and instead snapped this shot with my camera when it came up on the screen.
It all started on an amusement park ride. It was the Tower of Terror ride at Hollywood Studios in Orlando, to be exact. Like every time prior, I stepped into that elevator expecting to get the you know what scared out of me. Then it happened. I peed my pants. I had a rather long visit to the ladies room after this ride. Please don’t laugh too hard at my expense. You know this could very well have been you. After all, light bladder leakage can happen at any age.
It didn’t end with Tower of Terror. But I was prepared when I went to Universal Orlando and rode this next ride.
What goes up…
Must come down…
I just love that picture. There’s something about the dark clouds that make the ride seem even more ominous.
Sadly, it didn’t stop with just one ride. There have been many coasters since that required me to get a little discreet help from Poise. My problem with light bladder leakage has progressed beyond roller coasters. Sometimes it happens from coughing, or laughing too hard, and sometimes it seems for no good reason at all. I am so glad that I can still do the things that I love and not have to worry about a little bladder leakage.
When I head out of the house seeking some thrills, I always make sure to have a couple of Poise pads tucked into my bag.
Poise pads are uniquely designed for LBL, reducing stress, worry, and embarrassment. Three times drier than the leading period-only liners, Poise pads quickly lock away wetness and absorb odor, meaning nobody has to know my little secret. The thin and flexible design moves with your body, so I can walk around the amusement park all day in comfort.
You can pick Poise pads up at your local grocery or drugstore. In fact, Walgreens currently has a coupon available to save you $2 off Poise Products!
Hurry and grab this $2 Poise coupon before it’s gone. I got mine!
Don’t fret about light bladder leakage anymore. Poise let’s you go about your day without worry.
What are your thoughts on Poise and how they control LBL?

Oh the damn leakage.. I’m def feeling it now after 2 children. I’m doing kegels as I type! LOL Thanks for sharing! It’s important to show we are real people 🙂
That’s my favorite roller coaster! LBL is something not talked about so much so I’m glad someone finally is!

I love the fact that you talk about this issue just the way people talk about other health related issues, but it should be expected from someone brave enough to go after those ‘coasters!
I love roller coasters and sky diving is on my 40 before I’m 40 list 🙂 I can’t wait to go jump out of a plane! 😀

Oh, I don’t think I could ever ride a ride like that!
You are definitely not alone! Pretty sure that every woman who has had a baby could use Poise at some point!
I love a roller coaster ride as well. It is one of those things that has taken a back seat to being pregnant/having a baby around, but I’d love to get back into it when my kiddos get bigger!

You can keep those roller coasters to yourself!! lol

A girl after my own heart!! I love roller coasters and that one looked awesome 🙂 after 6 kids kids I’m surprised that my bladder isn’t mush, so far only the trampoline has given me trouble, we aren’t on speaking terms right now LOL.
I’ve been on that ride, it was so fun!!! Though ,it’s not called tower of terror. It’s the Rip Ride Rock it, or something like that. 😉 No shame in the truth! Keep on riding the coasters!!
Tower of Terror was just the first time it happened. I was better prepared when I rode the Rip Ride RockIt at Universal. 🙂
