Hi from down under. I am 52 years old and hope to contribute to the ADISC mature advice to younger members with problems. It is not easy growing up especially if you have a life long interest in diapers (or nappies down here) while everyone else of your age left that all behind years ago. It takes time and some life experiences to deal with the quilt and shame. This is only one aspect of human nature and who after all is completely normal anyway? I have had an attraction to diapers and girls' clothing all my life, but I see that now as only a part of what I am. Besides, what really matters in the long run is, where are we all going? Where we all end up, is far more important than how well we did in getting there. For me how we treat others matters far more than what we own. johnyABinAUS. PS my interests include science and astronomy and trying to learn French.
