Dear Reader It has been a while since I last wrote, but you have been on my mind. I had an experience where things easily could have gone very wrong, and I came to think of how life can change in a split second. How the world can tumble and how everything and anything never can be the same again. Perhaps it is due to a moment’s unawareness… A miscalculation of consequences or perhaps the moment where the truth and reality of a sickness strikes the mind and you know – Nothing is ever going to be the same again…

Dear Reader I will now let you in on a secret. When the nerves to my bladder were damaged during cancer surgery, I was 28, and left incontinent. That meant that I could not get rid of my urine in a normal way any longer. When a person is incontinent, there is a very large risk of leakage, because the overfilled bladder can no longer hold back on the urine. So running, dancing, walking always involved a risk of...

Dear Reader Summer time is upon us, and we meet friends and family, fly to foreign countries. We lie on the beach, visit cities, go hiking, camping and sailing. Summer time is the time when we relax and when we do something different from our everyday life. For some people it is hard to do different from the everyday life, because they have a condition where they depend on the routines and the safety that surrounds those routines. I could easily have been one of those people that had to say ‘Thanks – but no thanks’...

Dear Reader I work as a representative for Hunter Urology and I love my job. I travel around and talk to healthcare professionals. I share my story, and of course my solution that brought an end to my life as incontinent. Throughout the years I have wondered a lot about what it is that makes incontinence so shameful and surrounded by taboo. And here is (one of) my conclusions: (Warning: Pocket-psychology in full blossom)

Dear Reader I want to fight the taboo about incontinence. How can we do that when not even the professionals dare to talk about it? In Denmark, my experience is that even the General Practitioners are reluctant to touch the subject. ‘Go home and do some pelvic floor exercises’ is the common answer.

Dear Reader This is my third blog, where I write about my life with incontinence. I find it a very important mission, because so many people have incontinence as a part of their everyday life, but nobody talks about it. If you want to read my story from the beginning, you can find it by scrolling. I developed a variety of methods for living with my incontinence. I was young...

Dear Reader I was only 28. Luckily I was already a mother of three, but I could never have another child. I was a single mom and I was incontinent. That wasn’t very good odds for finding a new man in my life. My self-esteem grew inversely proportional with the wetness in my panties. The more I spilled the lower it got. I came to distance myself from my bladder and pelvis area. It was too hard for me to deal with. So I just blocked it out. Incontinence is a lonely condition.

Dear Reader From one day to another, back in the last millennium, I woke up after an operation for cervical cancer, as incontinent. I could not pee in a normal way any longer. My bladder did not tell my brain that it was full – and my brain could not respond and therefore not release the closing mechanism in the bladder. I was incontinent.
