I posted some of this in my introduction but I figured it would be maybe worthwhile to do a thread with updates past my introduction about my experience. I started writing and kept saying "I mentioned this before". For the sake of flow and completeness I may say things I already mentioned but will not mention that I did so. That make sense?
A little background.
I have been interested in diapers pretty much since I can remember. I didn't really explore it and mostly ignored it until the internet happened. After that I often read stories or looked at pictures, things I'm sure we have all done before. It wasn't until after high school that I did anything other than that.
The first time I bought diapers was years ago, maybe 5 years or so. I was living with roommates at the time and was worried about hiding and the space they would take up. So I ordered from diapersuperstore. I haven't heard them mentioned here before. The used to offer singles in just about any adult diaper brand. I was worried about even the space one of their sample packs would take up so I ordered just 5 total. A regular Molicare and a Super, an Attends with waistband, a Tena Slip Super, and a Tena pullup. Just one of each.
I ended up peeing in the Molicare Super. Shortly afterward I totally flipped out and threw them all out in a big public trash container.
Took me the five years or so since then to order anything again. This time hiding them is no problem. I ordered a full bag of Abri-Form X-Plus and a bunch of assorted other samples all Abena brand stuff from XP Medical. I kinda wish I had ordered some Molicares as well but I can always do so later.
So now, I don't freak out. Older and wiser and all that. I tried wetting twice shortly after getting my order. It was whatever and the mess was really gross for me to clean up. I'm also over the pullups. I like them because not being a wetting fan you can take them on and off really easily but it's just not the same. I don't like the six inch tall elastic around the waist and I don't like that the padding doesn't come up very high. I also like a tight fit and being that they're medium and I'm a pretty small guy (6', 145lbs) they are too loose on me.
So this brings me to the most recent news. It just seems such a waste to wear a diaper without using it. I can wear one three or four times using the velcro trick to easily take it on or off but eventually it starts to tear and stuff. So I tried wetting again tonight and found that my first impressions have dulled but are still more or less the same. I don't mind it but the clean up sucks. So it will probably be something I do when I forget how annoying it is to clean up.
