Hi everyone! I am a 40 year old DL, and I think this site is really cool. I like it because there is a mix of age ranges. I WISH I had this type of support to read when I was growing up, it would have made my life so much easier knowing there are others like me and that I wasn't a freaky perve!
A smidge about me in "normal" life ~
I love to experience things in life. I love being outside in the warm weather. I love the beach, warm summer nights, and hanging out. I have hobbies too, like taking pictures and looking at the sky.
I think my best trait is my optimism.
Some of my Diapered life : )
I started liking diapers after finding leftover Pampers in a closet when I was a kid. Very typical I suppose. I never got to wear real ones much after that except for those rare finds while playing in the tenant shared basement in our apartment building. My only outlet was making my own, and later I found much joy in wearing my mom's maxi-pads.
My access to diapers changed in my late teens when I had an injury that resulted in my needing a wheelchair to get around. After trying all the typical drainage bags and condom catheters typically used to manage a bladder, I got sick of all the leaks and frequent irritations down there. One of my nurses asked me if I was willing to try diapers for a while. Just her asking me sent a flush of embarrassment along with a wave of excitement through my mind and body that I still remember to this day. It was great to be at therapy during the day without worrying about leaks.
I thought I'd be embarrassed by wearing diapers to therapy, but I think realizing that it was now "acceptable" for me to be in diapers helped squelch that feeling. If anything I think they helped ease the other frustrations I was feeling while adjusting to my new life. Additionally, I quickly found that diapers created an intense sexual stimulation I had feared was gone forever with my injury. Sorry if that was TMI !
In a way I guess I'm lucky that I like them so much because instead of feeling miserable over being incontinent, it's ok for me to use diapers something that I longed for when I was growing up.
