I wasn't really sure what to title this thread since I will be mentioning a lot of different things. I have had issues with anxiety my whole life and I have been a DL for as long as I can remember although I have not engaged in diaper wearing until about 8 months ago when I started renting an apartment (I am currently a senior in college). I have been talking to a therapist for about 3 months at an average of about once or twice every couple weeks and opened up to her about my interest in diapers. She assured me that it absolutely sounds healthy and is something I should not feel any shame about.
I have a lot of interest in starting to wear more frequently. I have noticed that when I am wearing, my anxiety is lessened SIGNIFICANTLY. So much so that wearing even seems to have a residual positive effect on me. Currently, I only wear when I'm at my apartment and sometimes in public when I am with my girlfriend (she is very supportive). I have a decent stash of diapers, but I am trying to be financially responsible and going through 2-4 premium disposable diapers a day (Northshore Premiums, etc) isn't something I really want to do right now from a financial standpoint. I am interested in looking into cloth diapers/plastic pants and would like some advice about how to get started and what to consider! Personally, I would like to find cloth diapers which are not very bulky but still feel more like diapers than the regular Hanes underwear that I usually wear. I do not need them to be super absorbent because I do not plan on using them heavily, but I would still like to have the feeling that I am wearing a diaper. I look forward to hearing what you have to say and I welcome any suggestions!
