Hey all, thought I'd best introduce myself, what with this being the introductions section an' all.
Right, now I get to the bit I really enjoy; Sorry, but this is going to be a big post. There's a lot to tell and one thing I love more than anything else is talking about me . (I'm mostly joking, naturally).
One of my preferred nicknames is 'Dog' so I guess that's what y'all can call me if you want... I'll just say that it's 'cause I'm a (mostly) canine furry, not some sort of neo-militaristic gang name.
I found ADISC while looking at general incontinence support/information after my bladder exploded (ok, so that's an exaggeration but I swear it felt like it when it happened!) and figured I'd join up and make a contribution... or accidentally say the wrong thing and get kicked off within a week .
My interest in diapers (yeah, I call 'em by the generally accepted term even though they're not called that here in good ol' Blighty) was with me LONG before I needed them. I'm 99% d'fur but there's always that teeeeeny little bit of cub just waiting for an excuse to show up... but it's usually just the whole sleeping with plushies sort of stuff that's debatably not necessarily ab-based anyway.
I'd like to make a request here; I know a lot of cubs/abs/tbs/dls/etc have desires for incontinence but I'd rather not be told "how lucky I am". Obviously I can't stop you, and if you want to voice that opinion I'll respect and defend your right to do so. I know it sounds a bit of a weird request but I've been told that elsewhere and I just found it to be a little insensitive.
Obviously being a d'fur made it a little easier to accept the need for diapers but not really having a choice was a little awkward. Still, being cursed with a positive outlook I've found benefits to this, just as I do with most things. I no longer have to worry about missing any important parts of a movie. As I do a bit of online gaming not having to take a bathroom-break right at the point we're pummeling a boss is useful. It's also made me a more productive worker since I now only need a few bathroom-breaks a day in order to change. (Is it just me or did that last bit sound a little stereotypically "for the glorious soviet motherland" sort of thing?).
I still enjoy my diapers when appropriate... I just also have a lot of time now when I'm not enjoying them, they're just a fact of my life.
As for other hobbies, profession and schtuffs; I'm an artisan/craftsman focusing on metal-sculpting and engraving but I do all sorts of things, freelance and commission-based.
I'm a videogamer, mostly console based because my archaic laptop can't really handle any of the big names on the PC-based circuit. I also play the standard board games, Monopoly and the like as well as some of the non-board games... though things like Twister kind of went out of the window recently .
I'm a big reader, my favourite author being James Herbert, and I try to write whenver I get any free time... I haven't had anything published yet but there's still time, right?
I love a good horror movie... though most of today's can't hold a candle to the classics, Alien, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original)... you know the sort I mean.
Now here's my own personal miscellany.
I have a general and stress-induced CDO (kinda like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order... just like they should be!). Basically, I have a nasty habit of correcting stuff if I don't keep a handle on myself. Some things I can get myself to just let it drop if I catch myself but there are some things whereby if i don't correct them I start suffering... 'effects'... so if I do happen to correct you on anything, just don't take it personally, ignore me, and everything'll be fine... usually. (Oh, the stories I could tell you).
The other thing you should know is that I often spend a fair bit of time away from internet access so I can't always guarantee to be around... but I'll still contribute when I can.
So, after that HUGE introduction there, I think that's enough information but if there's anything else you want to know just ask... can't guarantee I'll give an answer but it's not like I'll judge you for asking .
As this is such a long one here's the tl;dr version; the name's Dog. I'm a gamer, sculptor/artist, d'fur/cub/dl and inco though not through choice and not enjoying it.
Came here looking for inco info/support and hoping I can make a meaningful contribution.
