I ask this question not because I am necessarily interested in the length of time (I have seen the other threads on this) but because I am curious about other people's experience going without and what it does to them.
Unlike many people on this site I have never gone through a binge and purge cycle and I find that it is because the pressure builds in me very quickly. After a full week of going without I am very grouchy, can't concentrate, and am generally less functional than I normally am. At two weeks, the longest I have ever gone since I first bought diapers, diapers are literally all I can think about. I can't imagine ever going through a cycle of purging- when I'm down to the last couple diapers I start to feel tremendous anxiety until I buy myself more.
Does anyone else experience it this way? I feel like my sanity is directly correlated with how often I get to play with diapers and that after a certain point I just can't function. Is this normal?
