Hey there- I am a bit of a long time browser and short time poster but I hope this makes sense to everyone.
For a while now I have been thinking about why I am a DL, and the route cause, if there is one. If I could perhaps put it down to anything, maybe it is down to the fact that I have had an 'unusual' childhood growing up.
I have always been in a stable family unit. Parents never been divorced, never had any family tragedy's or anything too dramatic in that nature. I am 21 years old and I live in the S.E of England currently.
When I was 5 years old, my dad moved us out to Taiwan, as he was offered a job out there. Then eventually moved onto South Korea, Hong Kong and finally Singapore. We came back to England when I was 15.
My first DL memory's were in Taiwan, when I used to steal nappies from younger siblings of friends houses I went too. Of course I'm not sure what impulsed me to do this, but as far as I am aware it started from there and my desire for nappies sort of grew.
Obtaining adult size nappies in Asia (when I became a teenager) was painfully easy. Different exotic brands were available and they were pretty cheap.
Back on topic, I often wonder if the move from England to Asia at such a young age could have impacted on me becoming a DL in anyway. Being on planes, going to 7 different schools, new cultures.. it all sounds very exciting, but could such a change in environment at a young age trigger thoughts about nappies and the like?!
Thanks for reading!
