You are still you, not your diagnosis: Living with incontinence and still LIVING
Have you been diagnosed with incontinence? Know that you are still you even though you are living with incontinence. A diagnosis is different from a definition. A diagnosis is about a condition of the body. A definition is about who you are at your core. A condition of the body does not change who you are at the core of your being. Your sense of self is shaped in your mind and attitude and not in your body.
Most men older than 25 have had to contend with changes in their bodies that may have been unwelcome. How we are in our bodies (what they can do, how they look, etc.) is always shifting. These shifts will be ongoing as long as we live. There are other changes, too. Perhaps you are wiser or have a list of accomplishments you can point to with pride. Maybe now you have more confidence, know how to handle a grill, hammer or golf club. Maybe you have great style or are good at putting others at ease. Whatever the ways you have grown over the years and come to know yourself, know it is all still true. You are still you. Your attitude about incontinence can make you feel disconnected from how you have known yourself to be. Just remember that your attitude shapes your experience. Incontinence need not change what you know about who you are.

One of the ways to remind yourself that you are still you is to do what you usually do. Don’t let incontinence get in the way of your usual activities. Men’s Liberty gives you the confidence to enjoy your day without fear of leaks or accidents.
