The Need for Adult Diapers: Moving Discomfort to Action
Certain health afflictions and the interventions used to sustain them—such as surgery to repair a torn ACL, insulin to stabilize diabetes, and chemotherapy to rid the body of cancer—are commonly discussed with a medical professional and most likely a circle of family and friends as well. Sure, these conditions present themselves quite tangibly, making secrecy difficult, as compared to let’s say infertility, mental illness, or adult incontinence. However, another, and quite powerful, variable separates the former from the latter: the discomfort and even shame of verbally opening up and thus seeking intervention.
While incontinence along with adult diapering may not be a dinner party conversation starter, or even share worthy with those we’re most comfortable, 25 million adult Americans are affected. That is roughly equivalent to the number of people currently residing in the state of Texas. But because the condition is so deeply personal, embarrassment may override the need and desire to act. Secrecy has a way of building fear, and fear may impede an individual’s likeliness to seek professional help, or at least investigate and try treatment options. In recent years, infertility and mental illness have made their marks on the “health” map, garnering more attention in the news, less stigma from the public, and thus greater action at the hands of those suffering. Let us treat adult incontinence the same way!
If you’ve found yourself questioning “Do I need adult diapers”—or any other incontinence product—for one, you’re not alone. And two, chances are there is a need. The first line of defense for this very real condition, which affects far more individuals than the general public most likely presumes, is adult diapers. Adult diapers can be easily used without the wearer worrying about further health ramifications; many other medical conditions often carry a host of prescriptions and pills whereas the first line of adult incontinence defense is completely safe and at your fingertips.
When it comes to deciding whether or not to embark on a more comfortable life by trying adult diapers, don’t let any fear or embarrassment of seeking intervention stop you. Thanks to LL Medico’s discreet (and free!) delivery, worries can be easily squelched and afflictions can be inconspicuously conquered without leaving your home. There’s nothing to lose except for discomfort and insecurity and everything to gain, such as liberation and confidence!
