As a person who has mobility issues, I have in the past avoided going anywhere that kept me from being near my wheelchair accessible bathroom. Even the public ADA bathrooms present a real challenge for me. I decided to try the Depends for days when I have doctor appointments, need to do shopping or just going out to restaurants, etc. Now I can relax and enjoy activities away from home without fear of embarrassment. I am not a large person (S/M) so I need something that's not big and bulky and this product provides that, but still provides plenty of absorption power. I was concerned about odor but that is not a problem with Depends (I tried another brand and that was a bit of an issue). I take an 'extra' in case I need to change as I could manage that even in a public rest room. I've heard all the comedians jokes about this type of product, but it is NO JOKE when some health condition creates the need for them! It would be a real shame to totally alter your lifestyle when these products are available to make it possible for you to continue to get out of your home and be with friends and family!
