An Open Letter to the makers of Depends.

I have seen the commercials for Adult Incontinence products, you know, the ones with The Sixties Music in the back ground, the swaying hips, the winking eyes...The "I still have it" stance...Beh...Yes, I know, in advertising the process of making the public wish to be associated with your product and feel good about purchasing it is the goal.... But For GOD'S Sake PLEASE stop trying to make incontinence sexy!!! I mean EWWWW!!!!
Outside of a Water Sports meeting at the proverbial "All Things SEXUAL Convention" there really is nothing SEXY about pissing your own drawers and sitting in your own feces...Just Keep it Medical, not Social!!! Please!!!
If there ever there was a product people wanted shipped in "discrete brown wrapper" This Is It!

I agree those commericals are crazy. The commericals that bother me the most are for the ones like; Exelon patch, namenda etc... They perceive that Dementia/Alz is a "walk in the park". Well, those drug manufactures who do the commericals need to spend a day at my home or a lot of ones on here. This is definately no walk in the park taking care of someone with Dementia. They need to have commericals show the hard truth. Maybe that will make the public more aware of the growing problem with Alz/ Dementia. Maybe then the public will see what it is like from a caregivers perspective.
I know they want to market their product so it appeals to people. But misleading people to think that if their loved one wears a patch or pops a pill that everything will be okay, Is far from the truth. Because of commericals like that non-understanding people of this disease,who believe what they see on tv have "informed" me that these meds will make mom better. Yes, mom was on Namenda/Aricept but it just slowed down the inevitable.
Sorry to vent! As I was reading other posters here. I seen that Exelon patch commerical on tv. It got me fired up!!!

To loose control of bodily functions is an embarrassing and terrible situation for anyone, so I think that for those that manufacture the products to try and make them look nicer and attempt to lift the stigma that's associated with them is a step in the right direction.

How will they advertise these NASA diapers? By the ounce? Gallon?
Or the lady who drove hundreds of miles to face off her ex boyfriend's new woman?

Depends sure are necessary these days and work a lot better than the old timey adult diapers. Oh well sometimes it is not so cute, exciting or funny, but you have to lighten up at some point in your life or you would lose your cool ;-)
