Depend Fit-Flex ~ End The Stigma And Take Back Your Life! #DependFitFlex

Posted by


You can depend on Depend.

Trust me, I know.  Incontinence has been a fact of life for me.

You see…I am disabled.  I was born with Spina Bifida.

What is Spina Bifida?

From the website of the Spina Bifida Association Of Ontario:

“Spina bifida is a neural tube birth defect (NTD) which occurs within the first four weeks of pregnancy. The spinal column fails to develop properly resulting in varying degrees of permanent damage to the spinal cord and nervous system.

Infants born with spina bifida may have an open lesion on their spine where significant damage to the nerves and spinal cord occurs. Although the spinal opening is surgically repaired shortly after birth, the nerve damage is permanent. This results in varying degrees of paralysis of the lower limbs, depending largely on the location and severity of the lesion.”

There are varying degrees of severity of Spina Bifida.  I was born with the most severe form: Myelomeningocele

Myelomeningocele (my’-low-meh-nin’-go-seal):  Myelomeningocele is the most severe form of Spina Bifida in which the spinal cord and its protective covering, the meninges, protrude from the opening in the spine.

Doctors operated to close up the large opening in my back when I was just 7 hours old. The operation was a success but, I suffered some severe nerve damage.  My parents were told I would never be able to walk. Doctors said I would likely face a myriad of health problems for the rest of my life.

Most people born with Myelomeningocele Spina Bifida are paralyzed from the waist down and end up in a wheelchair.  Imagine the look of surprise on my doctor’s face when I walked into his office, on my own, at just over one year old.

“A Walking Miracle”

While I was considered “a walking miracle”, I did not live without severe health problems as a child. Incontinence problems plagued me right from the beginning.  I spent months of my childhood in and out of hospital thanks to severe bladder infections that also resulted in the need for major surgery at age three to save one of my kidneys from further damage.

Back in the 1970’s,  products like Depend Underwear did not exist – neither for older kids, nor for adults.  The alternatives were quite horrible, so my wonderful mother resorted to making her own version of cloth diapers – complete with velcro closures (she was ahead of the times!).

The Year The Word STIGMA Entered My Life

I spent the first 7 years of my life having to wear diapers – yes diapers.

Imagine being a 7-year-old child and still wearing diapers.  It was at age 7 that I first learned about the meaning behind the word stigma.

Stigma:  “a mark of disgrace associated with a particular circumstance, quality, or person.

While most of my friends and classmates treated me like everyone else, a few kids found it necessary to tease me about wearing diapers.  As an adult, I can certainly understand that sort of classroom teasing now, but it was difficult to deal with back then.  As a kid, I just wanted to fit in and feel normal.  Wearing diapers made me feel anything but normal.  The shame, embarrassment and stigma I felt from having to wear diapers at such an “old” age is something that I still carry with me to this day.

Approximately 3.3 Million Canadians Are Affected By Bladder Control Issues

Look around you.  You would probably be surprised to learn that someone you know suffers from incontinence. Just look at me.  I live with a “hidden” disability. You wouldn’t even know I have Spina Bifida unless I told you.  I keep my health problems to myself.  I am a master at hiding my disability.  Why?  Because of the stigma.

There’s that word again – Stigma.

No one wants to admit they require the use of adult underwear.  No one. Just look at all the embarrassed expressions on the faces of those handling packages of adult underwear at the checkout counters at the stores. Everyone around that package of adult underwear is looking everywhere except AT the package of adult underwear.  God forbid someone has to call for a price check on the adult underwear. Yes, I’ve had that happen,  and let’s just say a price check on a box of condoms is nowhere near as embarrassing!

Adults like me, who live with Spina Bifida, are not the only people who require the use of adult underwear and other incontinence products.  Unfortunately, many women find that they have a loss of bladder control after childbirth, at least temporarily.  Anyone who has had to endure any kind of surgery below the waist that affects muscle control, such as prostate surgery (or surgery for Spina Bifida),  can end up suffering the effects of incontinence.  I have very dear friends and family members who suffer from debilitating diseases such as Crohn’s and Colitis, resulting in bowel incontinence.   Any number of health problems can result in adults having to wear adult underwear.

Think YOU will NEVER have to wear adult underwear?  Think again.

I hate to be the one to break it to you but, even in healthy adults, reduced muscle strength is a natural part of getting older.  Chances are, as you age, if you aren’t already using adult underwear, you probably will be.

Living with Spina Bifida means living with a bladder and bowel that I never know HOW WELL they are going to work, WHEN they are going to work, or even IF they are going to work.  It’s a constant guessing game for me, but a game that I’ve learned to play fairly well.  I use Depend Fit-Flex Adult Underwear for those times when I just can’t take a chance on how my body is going to react at any given moment.  My body does not work on a schedule,  and definitely does NOT allow me to hold in bodily fluids while I search for bathroom.

When I have to go, I have to go NOW!

On some trips,  my Spina Bifida brought a whole new meaning to the term “Accidental Tourist”!

Oh the stories I could tell! One such story involved: a trip to visit family in San Antonio, my sister, a bathroom stall in a department store, no toilet paper, a lost cell phone, laxative…and NO Depend Underwear.  I’ll spare you the gory details…I’m sure you can fill in the blanks!

Suffice it to say, I never left home without my Depend Underwear again!

So for me, not having control over my bodily functions means making sure I wear a pair of Depend Fit-Flex when travelling on a long trip (there’s never a washroom in the middle of nowhere!), attending a big event with hundreds of people (there are never enough open stalls!), or on regular days when my body just doesn’t want to work the way it’s supposed to.  I used to worry constantly during long trips, and miss out on many great things just out of fear of having an accident.

Since I started wearing Depend Fit-Flex Underwear, I feel like I’ve got some of my freedom back.  Things aren’t perfect for me, some days even the best adult underwear like Depend Underwear can’t help me.  But on the days that I call “normal”,  with Depend,  I know I can handle situations that I would otherwise avoid.  Depend lets me live my life to the fullest.

For me, this post is not a product review for Depend.  I already know how Depend Fit-Flex Underwear work…and they work WELL.  Trust me, I know my Adult Underwear! Some generic brand products are terrific. Others, like generic brand adult underwear are not.  With decades of experience using adult underwear, I can honestly say, I’ve tried them all – name brand and generic. My experiments with adult underwear have, at times, been disastrous. After many failed attempts at using other brands, let’s just say, I’m a Depend customer for life!

Tips For Living A Fulfilling Life With Incontinence Issues

I was surprised to learn from the Depend website that there are many things we can do to help manage incontinence, like minimizing alcohol and caffeine intake. That’s a hard one for me – I love my coffee!

  • Make stress reduction a priority. Stress can lead to inflammation in our bodies – especially our bladders. Studies have shown that daily meditation can help relax your mind and body, decreasing the excessive nerve stimulation to the bladder that causes bladder control issues.
  • Commit to a regular exercise routine that includes cardio and strength training. Exercise, especially when focused on the pelvic floor muscles, can improve overall urinary tract health as well as bladder function and control.
  • Try products that provide a discreet and comfortable fit, like Depend Underwear with new Fit-Flex protection, which features more Lycra strands, to help give you the freedom and confidence you need every day.
  • A healthy diet can help prevent or avoid additional loss of bladder control. Steer clear of foods and beverages that are known to irritate the bladder like caffeine, alcohol and refined sugars. A diet rich in leafy green vegetables and fruits will improve your overall health, energy, mood and bladder health.
  • Make time for intimacy. Sexual activity increases blood flow and nerve stimulation to the pelvic region while improving bladder muscle strength and control.

Help Me Eliminate The Stigma!

I have always been a private person when it comes to talking about my disability. My disability isn’t a pretty one. My worst health problems resulting from my Spina Bifida are health problems that no one wants to talk about. They involve bodily functions, and for many, bodily functions are just too dirty and embarrassing.  So aside from a few online friends, real-life friends,  and my family, most people do not know that I live with Spina Bifida.

So the stigma surrounding incontinence and adult underwear is the very reason I have decided to come forward and tell my story.  I am tired of feeling ashamed and embarrassed because I still have to resort to using adult underwear at times.  No one should ever be made to feel embarrassed or ashamed that they have to wear adult underwear.  The makers of Depend, Kimberly-Clark, want to end the stigma of incontinence…and so do I.

Despite my medical problems and incontinence issues, I am a VERY lucky woman.  My doctors have told me I am one of the first generation of people born with Spina Bifida living into adulthood.  I don’t know what the future holds for me, what health problems I may develop thanks to my Spina Bifida, or how long I may be able to live with Spina Bifida, however, I do know that I will no longer be a slave to the stigma of incontinence and adult underwear. I want to enjoy my life the best that I can, and with Depend, I know it’s possible.

Please help me spread the word.  June is Spina Bifida Awareness Month.  This is my personal PSA:  If you are considering getting pregnant, please check with your doctor. It is now known that many cases of Spina Bifida can be prevented by taking Folic Acid supplements BEFORE getting pregnant.

A HUGE thank you to Depend for allowing me to tell my story…and for helping me to LIVE my life!

Do you or someone you know, suffer from incontinence? I’d love to hear your story.  I know it’s embarrassing, but we need to end the stigma together.  If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your story here, I’d still love to hear from you.  You can always contact me at   XOXO.

    Well, cripe! I thought you were awesome before. I have no idea how I missed this last year. What an all around wicked person you are. I don’t throw terms around like “cripe” and “wicked” all that often and save them only for very special occasions.

    Thank you for your well written, honest post and for the awareness you have brought.

    • October 4, 2015


      Brenda! I feel so honoured you used those words for me 🙂 That made my day! Thanks so much for your kinds words and for taking the time to read this. I sure hope you are right and that this helps bring a ton of awareness and understanding about this health problem. xo

    Hey Sandy,
    WOW! Good for you on writing this post. It took guts, girl. And as your comments show, this post made a BIG difference and will definitely help eliminate the stigma. A family member of mine was born with SB and I think the same form as yours. So I knew exactly what you were writing about. You are a miracle, and one I am happy to know and hang out with once and a while for work 😉 Congrats.

    • July 7, 2014


      Thank you SO much Julia!! I sure hope it has helped to make a difference and continues to do so. I am so overwhelmed with all the fantastic support I’ve received since writing this…it makes me wonder why I kept it “hidden” for so long. I guess everything happens for a reason and this was the best time for me to share. I am sorry that one of your family members was also born with SB. I truly hope they are as lucky as I am and that they can walk on their own. You are the 4th person to mention to me about a close friend or family member they know who was born with SB. After hearing others’ stories, I feel even more grateful. Thank you so very much for reading and for your sweet comments – they mean the world to me! XO

    You my friend, are amazing. Yes. Amazing. It takes great strength to put such intimate details out there. I have great admiration for people like you who can share their personal journeys.

    We are all VERY lucky to have you in our lives. xo

    • June 18, 2014


      Oh oh…here come the tears again. Sarah, that is such a sweet thing to say, I thank you so much. I’m very thankful to the makers of Depend products for giving me this opportunity. It was the push I needed to be able to talk about this and share my story. I’ve always wanted to help others with my problem but, because I kept things so hidden, I never really did help much at all. I finally feel like I can be open about this…and more importantly, help others be more comfortable and open about their incontinence issues too. Thank you SO much for reading, Sarah, and for commenting!! XOXO

    what a great post. Thank you for sharing. We have a history of Spina Bifida in our family and I religiously took my folic acid. With my second child one doctor told me I didn’t need to take as much as I was. I told him that I was taking the recommended amount and that is how much I was going to continue to take. The more people talk about it the more people will learn. Thank you again and I am sure all the other kids out there with hidden disabilities thank you too!

    • June 18, 2014


      Michelle, thank you so much for saying so! I’m sorry to hear about your family history with Spina Bifida. I’m the only one in my family who has it. I am SO happy to hear that you insisted on taking the recommended amount of folic acid for both of your pregnancies! I don’t usually like to stray from a doctor’s advice but, in this case, I would have done the same thing! Thanks so very much for reading and commenting and sharing your story with me! XO

  5. June 16, 2014


    Sandi – thank you for sharing this with us. This took so much strength and I love your honesty. This post means so much to those suffering in silence – hopefully allowing them to reach out for help! Thank you for your strength and honesty. xo

    • June 16, 2014


      Thanks SO much Carla! You’re right, it took a lot for me to hit “publish”. I’ve always hated talking about my disability and related problems so I’ve hidden it for over 40 years (for the most part). I guess I finally realized that, now that I blog, perhaps maybe I can help others who are still hiding behind the stigma. I’m so happy to be on the “team” with you. Your story is one you should be very proud of as well. Together, hopefully we will help to end the stigma and help other people to talk about their incontinence. Thanks so much for reading and commenting, Carla! XOXO

  6. June 15, 2014


    Sandy, I made it through some of the comments, but I don’t know if I can make it through them all — I’m already teary!

    You’re right: I had no idea whatsoever that you had a hidden disability and that you have been facing the challenges of spina bifida since a baby. I assumed that spina bifida was something quite visible (like wheelchair, or other walking tools). I have really learned a lot from this post.

    But one thing I didn’t learn was how much incontinence can affect a person’s life. Like most women, I have had my minor issues since birthing children, but my grandmother has a spinal condition that affects her nerves. It keeps getting worse over time. She’s already had back surgery for it and now there is nothing left to try. It’s not the pain that she finds the most difficult. It’s that she feels she can no longer go out for trips and leave her home without the constant worry of incontinence. It has a major impact on a person’s life! Without mental health, one can’t really have physical health and incontinence can really affect a person’s mental health.

    On a personal note, I really admire your tenacity Sandy. You have conquered so much with it. I always knew you were positive and kind, but I know how tough you are too! 🙂

      Julie, what a wonderful note you have written! Yes, the comments have been so incredibly sweet that…I end up teary eyed every time I come back to respond to the next comment. I’m really glad I’ve been able to help educate you a bit more about Spina Bifida. I’ve learned a lot over the last few years myself, like some people are born with the mildest form and yet don’t find out until years later when they experience severe back pain that won’t go away. I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. If the pain isn’t what stops her, she really needs to try Depend Underwear. If nothing else, it can give her the feeling of confidence, even if she doesn’t technically “need to use” the underwear on a given outing. It is a funny thing but, just the feeling of being “secure” in a pair of Depend Underwear can relax the body and put your mind at ease. I think these could really help her to “get out there” if she wants to. I have convinced a senior family member to use Depend Underwear whenever they feel uncertain about their bladder – like when they are going to be away from home for a long period of time. It took some work to get them to agree to try them, but now they are happy I pushed them to try Depend Underwear. Julie, your last comments are very sweet – thank you <3 I don't always feel tough, and some days my problems get the better of me, but I do always try to remember how very lucky I really am. Thank you SO much for stopping by to read and share your comments. XOXO

      • June 16, 2014


        Hi again Sandy,
        Yes, my grandmother is a definite user of Depends. They really do allow her more freedom … but she still finds it challenging to get out further than a short trip (anxiety, I guess, about a big accident).
        You are fabulous. Everyone deserves to have “bad” days every now and then. That doesn’t mean you aren’t tough! 🙂

  7. June 14, 2014


    This must have been hard to write being it’s so personal, but I think you are really helping so many others that are in the same situation. Well done!

    • June 14, 2014


      Thank you so much, Rebecca! Yes, it was hard to write and hard to hit that “publish” button, but I figured there was no better time. If I can help others then I will be very happy I did it 🙂 Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

    Thank-you for your honesty. Stigma is an ugly thing, but when people share their own stories with positivity like you have, it starts to break down that stigma.
    Great post Sandy!

    • June 13, 2014


      Thank you SO much, Jody!! Your support and kind words mean a lot!! I sure hope that happens. I knew there was a lot of stigma surrounding this issue before writing my post, now I’ve actually heard from others who have suffered from the stigma and, I’m realizing how much of a bigger problem it is. Thanks so much for reading and for stopping by to comment!! XOXO

      Thank YOU, Kat, for being my blogging “inspiration”! Your comments mean so much to me because, well, you are one of my blogging “idols” 🙂 I value your comments and advice always, and I thank you SO much for stopping by to read and comment here. XOXO

  11. June 13, 2014


    Thanks for sharing your post Sandy. I am extremely proud of you. This must have been so difficult to share with everyone. One thing for sure, you should never be ashamed of anything you have been through or continue to deal with for the rest of your life. To the contrary, you have been inspiration for everyone that you have touched in your life and certainly for me. I think you forgot or neglected to mention the fact, that you had a 50% chance of even surviving that surgery when you were born and almost 100% chance that you would be paralyzed from the waist down and likely hydrocephalic with a life expectancy of around 5 years. Yes you were a medical miracle with Doctors from all over US and Canada wanting to review your medical history at the time. You spent more time in the hospital in the early years of your life than anyone should ever have to. Despite your many life challenges and opportunities missed out on and limitations you have had to deal with, you have always remained so positive and so supportive of everyone in your life. Mom called you our little ball of sunshine and that has never changed. Your family is so fortunate that you survived that miracle operation and so blessed to have you in our lives. I am so proud to be your Brother. You are a shining example of everything that is good in this world. Please keep being that beacon of light in our life, that you have always been. You have and always will be my champion and I love you!!! xoxo

      I had to step away from the computer after I read this…so I could get my blubbering under control 🙂 This brought lots of tears to my eyes, bro! Thank you for all the wonderful things you said, they mean so much to me. I am grateful for all the things you mentioned also – I had forgotten a lot of that! You made me feel even more lucky in life with all those reminders. I would never be where I am today without my wonderful supportive family and friends. YOU are the reason I am so positive and happy. If you, my siblings, and my parents had not helped me so much through the years, I would never be who I am today. I’m living proof that the never-ending support and love of good family and friends gets you through the hard times. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love you too! XOXO

    As a mom of 2, soon to be 3, I think we all have “issues” now and then. And you are right it is something that no one talks about – but really what is the big deal. It is so great that there are products out there that can still help everyone live life to the fullest!

    • June 13, 2014


      You’re right, Kate, it shouldn’t be a big deal, but it still is. Hopefully we can change that 🙂 You can be sure that I am someone who is grateful for this product. Thanks for stopping by to comment! XO

  13. June 13, 2014


    Wow! Good for you! I am very proud that you would open up like this to the world. I had no idea what you have gone through. You are officially now my favorite cousin ( and person)!!

    • June 13, 2014


      Well that was definitely worth writing this post for! (being called your favourite cousin/person). I won’t tell the other cousins 😉 hehehe Thanks so much for the very kind words, Peter. I truly appreciate them. Thanks also for stopping by to read and comment! XOXO

    Thank you for sharing your story. Being 7 years old and wearing a diaper would have been incredibly hard for a young lady. Thank goodness there are products like this that helps you continue your day without distractions.

    • June 13, 2014


      Yes, if only they had a product like this back when I was a kid. It would have made things a bit less difficult, that’s for sure. Thanks for stopping by to read and comment, Randa! XO

    Sandy, You are very brave for sharing – but the sharing will help many people. It is hard for people to be honest and you have laid your cards on the table, for everyone to see. Good for you. You are a wonderful person and I am very happy to be related to you! I have a good friend who’s daughter is unfortunately in a wheel chair with the same disease and I am anxious to share your blog with her. Love You

    • June 12, 2014


      Sue! Thanks so much for stopping by! You’re right it is very hard for people to be honest about topics like this, and I was one of those people for most of my life. Because I could “hide” it so well, I did. When you want to “fit in” and feel “normal” you hide the things that make you different. I’m too old for all that hiding and, now that I have the blog, I figure what better way is there than to share and hopefully help others in the process. The people at Depend came along at the perfect time and gave me a reason to share 🙂 You are just as wonderful a person as me…for many other reasons (and bestest friend ever to man’s best friend!). I’m sorry to hear about your friend’s daughter with SB. I would love it if you shared this with her! Thanks SO much for commenting, Sue. It means a lot. Love you too! XOXO

    My Dear Friend Sandi!
    You are without a doubt the most wonderful person I have met through the web. Right now I have tears rolling down my face. I just want to hug and kiss you and tell you how very proud I am of you. I never would have guessed in a million years that you suffer with Spina Bifida. Thank you for sharing with others your story. It is nothing to be ashamed of and there are others who will benefit from your story. I just want to say thank you for being my friend and to let you know how much I appreciate knowing someone like you. I hope someday I get a chance to meet you and give you and big hug and kiss…love you!

    • June 12, 2014


      Oh Pam! I had to step away from my computer for a bit, until I got the tears under control. Thank you SO much for your amazing words, Pam. I don’t think I deserve all that, but it makes me smile big (and tear up) reading what you wrote. I truly hope you are right and that by doing this I can really help others. Thank YOU for being my friend and one of my biggest supporters since the start! I am so thankful to have “known” you over the past few years and I truly hope we get to meet in person one day…because I want that hug and kiss! <3 Thank you again, Pam! XOXO

    Sandy, despite your illness you clearly live your life to the fullest and you have a very positive attitude, this is why it would surprise many to know that you have such a serious illness. On a lighter note, I am sure there are more people than we realize out there wearing Depend for women. After having a child, getting a cold with lots of sneezing and coughing definitely warrants a pack of Depend!!!! 🙂

    • June 12, 2014


      I sure try to, cjm 🙂 I have my problems but, as my smart aunt always tells me, there is always someone worse off than “you”…and it’s very true. I feel extremely lucky – if for no other reason (and there are lots) than I’m not in a wheelchair. That alone makes me feel very lucky. For sure, many more people use Depend than we think. No one wants to talk about these issues, so that’s why it’s all covered up (so to speak!). Childbirth definitely plays havoc with women when it comes to incontinence. Thanks so much for stopping by to read and comment! XO

  18. June 12, 2014


    Wow! Thanks to those of you who have reached out to me so far. I truly appreciate you sharing your stories with me. I now have no doubt that I did the right thing by sharing my story. This is helping me too…by knowing I’m definitely not alone when it comes to these types of problems. XO

    What???? I had no idea you were born with anything at all. I am surprised and have a whole new respect for you. I liked you before because you are just a nice person and a kind lady. I have seen some Depends posts and thought it doesn’t really make sense for that blogger to be talking about this. I understand the issue, but I am a skeptic about some testimonials. This right here is an authentic post and so now again I have doubled or tripled my respect for you.

    • June 12, 2014


      Well thank you SO very much, Paula!! You are one of my faves and I highly respect your opinion…so this comment means a lot to me 🙂 Yes, you couldn’t get more authentic than this – there’s no doubt about it, I use this product and love it. Wouldn’t recommend anything else when it comes to adult underwear. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting Paula! XO

    I can see why this post was the hardest one for you to write, Sandy! Revealing this part of you is a huge thing to do. I must to my hat to you. It takes a strong person to share this with, well, the world, and I am an even a bigger fan of CBH and of you!

      Thank you SO much for your support, Lian. It means so much to me. It was one of those things that, when the opportunity came my way, I knew I just had to do it. I am truly hoping I can help a lot of people with this. Thanks so much for reading and for stopping by to comment. XO
