17 Things Any Girl With A Small Bladder Will Understand

You know that holding your pee is no way to live.


For anyone who has a small bladder you understand that you live your life differently than people with normal sized bladders. Unlike your friends, you most likely hate road trips or traveling in general because it means you may not have access to a bathroom when you need one. You're always aware of where the nearest bathroom is and you almost never forget to use the bathroom before you leave the house or before any event. And while people may judge you for how often you use the bathroom, you know that holding your pee is no way to live.

1. Road trips are a nightmare.

The thought of being stuck in a car for hours and possibly having to go to the bathroom but none are available is the things your nightmares are made of.

2. You make sure to always go to the bathroom before you leave the house.

It doesn't matter if you're only leaving for five minutes or five hours, you're using that bathroom.

3. And you always remember to go to the bathroom before bed.

You never forget to go to the bathroom before bed because you know if you don't, then you'll wake up in the middle of the night.

4. Naturally, the first thing you do in the morning is go to the bathroom.

And even though you went before bed, running to the bathroom is the first thing you do in the morning.

5. You're practically tethered to the bathroom when drinking at the bar.

Going out and drinking is fun and awful at the same time because while you're enjoying yourself you also have to stay as close to the bathroom as possible.

6. And you want to die if there's a long line.

And if there's a long line for the bathroom, then you pretty much want to die.

7. You hate it when someone asks, "Didn't you just go to the bathroom?"

It's your pet peeve when someone asks, "Didn't you just go to the bathroom?" First of all, rude and second of all, yes, but I have to go again.

8. You've gone to the bathroom, left and then immediately had to go to the bathroom again.

There have been times where you went to the bathroom, finished and then immediately realized you had to pee again.

9. You don't understand how people find the sound of running water relaxing.

You can't seem to comprehend how some people find the sound of running water relaxing because it just makes you have to go to the bathroom.

10. You find it rude when people go to the bathroom without asking you to join.

What if I had to go to the bathroom? Also it's just girl code to ask anyone else if they need to go.

11. Sitting through a TV show or movie and having to pee is the worst.

Having to sit through a show or movie is terrible because you don't want to miss anything, but you also don't want to pee your pants.

12. You absolutely hate having to use the bathroom on an airplane or bus.

But you power through your disgust because you have to.

13. You've mastered going to the bathroom in a public restroom with as little touching as possible.

Public restrooms can be absolutely nasty so you've mastered the art of going to the bathroom with touching as little as possible, I'm talking about "the squat."

14. You spend more money on toilet paper than your friends.

Because you're constantly going to the bathroom you spend more money on toilet paper than your friends and honestly, it can sometimes get a little embarrassing.

15. You always make sure to go to the bathroom before a concert.

Going to the bathroom before a concert starts is a must because you would die inside if you missed part of the show.

16. You're petrified of how much you're going to have to pee when you're pregnant.

You already pee enough as is so just thinking about how much you're going to be in the bathroom when pregnant is enough to make you question having children.

17. Too many times you've painted your nails and immediately realized you have to go to the bathroom.

And far too often you'll paint your nails and then only when they're drying do you realize you have to go to the bathroom. So you either risk ruining your manicure, but relieve yourself, or you hold it and suffer, but have a nice manicure.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
