So after much lurking, I guess it's time I make an introduction. It definitely feels weird putting myself out there and saying, "hey this is part of who I am". I've made considerable efforts to keep this part of myself as unshared as possible, so this whole intro thing, as I said, feels odd.
I've been DL since I was about 11 or so. My mom ran a daycare and we lived on the second floor, above it. It's fairly straightforward how I came into liking diapers.
I've had difficult moments with the whole thing, particularly having been outed by my step-mom in front of my family and a slew of shrinks, calling me 'sick, and 'ill'. After this, I made sure to keep this part of my life a closely guarded secret.
I recently shared this with my amazingly encouraging GF, who is totally down to let me wear again. Since then, I've been exploring this area of my life with refreshed eyes and a huge weight off my shoulders.
Right now, I'm in between careers, in school (and totally paid), from being a burnt-out tech to hopefully a good machinist.
I'm also a new-ish dad, which has been nothing but total joy, save for the 4AM parties.
I had found this forum through searches many moons ago but was always afraid of going more public. I'm glad that there's a large community that's open to share their experiences and support with others.
So yea, I guess this can be taken as an intro, but mostly a long overdue thank you to people posting, for making me and others out there feeling more normal.
