I'm starting this thread as a result of participating in Bittergrey's second recent survey.
I will include my response to this particular question from that survey that I would like to share with the other members of the ADISC community. If you care to respond to this question - post on.
Do you think your siblings affected how you view diapers and babyhood?
Possibly - They teased me incessantly about being a baby, cry baby and the such. I stopped sucking my thumb because of the teasing. Another result of the teasing was was that I took my favorite stuffed Teddy bear and blankie to the burn barrel one day several years before I started school. (probably much earlier than I would have wanted). I was NEVER a bed wetter, but my older brother (adopted) wet the bed until he was taken from the home (14 y.o.). I would often crawl into his bed with him (due to my nightmares/night terrors that I experienced every night of my childhood. Subsequently, I was wet and in a wet bed almost every night until was 8 y.o. My mother was both physically and emotionally violent and harsh. My adopted brother was always screamed at and humiliated and/or beaten for his bed wetting. Every night was frightening and traumatizing to both me and him. I was referred to as baby brother long into my high school and college years.
