Accidents Happen: Living With Overactive Bladder
I was “in the zone” in the middle of a sales presentation when I felt the warmth and wetness between my legs. I froze mid-sentence and pretended I had lost my train of thought. I was certain people could see, or worse, smell the urine.
That’s when I knew I needed to do something about my overactive bladder (OAB). I had such strong urges to go and just couldn’t get to the bathroom in time. When I finally saw a doctor, it was a relief to learn I was not the only one who experienced it. In fact, my doctor said it affects nearly 1 in 3 women (and not everyone who has it seeks treatment). For me, it’s not just the leaking, but the urgency. And, of course, it always seems to happen right before I have something really important to do.
