Luce Brett | Incontinence: It's Not Just You
Luce Brett is the author of PMSL or How I Literally Pissed Myself Laughing and Survived the Last Taboo to Tell the Tale. Luce became incontinent at the age of 30 after having her first son. She felt scared, upset, embarrassed, dirty and shocked. She felt it important to have a conversation to help those suffering in silence.
In this episode, Luce shares:
- Her story and learnings along the way
- Why it is important to talk about this taboo topic
- What healthcare providers and patients alike can do
- The importance of being proactive
“I felt like even when there was information, it was either aimed at older women, even when it wasn’t, I think maybe in an attempt to make people not feel bad about themselves, it was kind of normalizing the incontinence is okay, and sort of quite fun or a bit of a laugh. And I was thinking, even those funny jokes people tell, it’s not really that fun to wet yourself on the doorstep or to get onto a trampoline and wet yourself at a kid’s party.” – Luce Brett
