If This Were Easy…

…I wouldn’t have to admit this

Filed under: health, PT exercises — Easy @ 9:00 am

Those of you who know me in real life (or on Facebook) are probably aware that I’ve had a cold for weeks. It’s actually pretty much gone now, but even when I don’t have a cold, I do have asthma, so I still have regular coughing fits.

Embarrassingly enough, I sometimes suffer from stress incontinence when I cough, a problem that’s only gotten worse since I significantly upped my daily fluid intake.

It’s not something that most people would notice. I don’t think I go around smelling of urine. (I hope I don’t go around smelling of urine.) But it’s still pretty humiliating on a personal level.

A friend recently sent me a copy of the exercises her PT prescribed to help battle stress incontinence. So that’s next week’s new goal — to do those exercises each day. They’re mostly things I can do while sitting in this chair, which is good, because as I’m sure you’re all aware, this chair is where I spend 90% of my waking hours.
