I guess introductions on my side are in order. My nickname comes from a saying in German, where when you title something 08/15 it is regular, nothing special. I see it as that I am a regular (relatively anonymous) internet user. I chose that nick because it has just about nothing to do with me or my interests. I use a different nick for different interests, so unless it is diaper related anybody going by 08/15 is not me.
OK, now on to some details. I currently live in Germany, but spent a significant part of my life in the UK. I am a graduated Scientist.
As to my interest in diapers, I would say I am mostly a DL and have no real interest in AB things (although AB stories if written well enough can still hold my interest). My interest in diapers began at about 14 years old, but I never got to wear diapers proper until I was about 17 and living on my own. I went 24/7 a few times back then, usually for a few weeks or months at a time, but my parents (where I stayed when not at University) tried to discourage diapers and I had to stop.
Back then I did not know why, but diapers gave me a great sense of security and gernerally helped reduce the stress of everyday life. But to understand that I would probably have to explain a bit further.
I was diagnosed with Asperger Autism several years ago (six, seven, eight? I don't know anymore). Being around a lot of people is difficult for me, the less familiar I am with the situation the more difficult and stressful. What some people consider a good time, like going into a place that plays loud music, is full of people and talking with people they barely know, would be a nightmare for me. This is partially since my ears are quite sensitive and discos and clubs are always so loud the noise is painful to me, as well as the fact that I notice the usually horrible use of sound equipment. The base is usually clipped (too loud for the speakers to handle) resulting in painful high frequency artifacts that I hear.
Anyway, I always had the problem that whenever I was immersed in some topic or activity I would not notice my bladder until it was *very full*. I would have to run to the toilet. Another problem was that if I did not get to a toilet in time if that happened, my bladder sort of cramped shut. This was painful and usually took about 10-30min to convince my body that I was indeed sitting on a toilet and releasing that cramped shut bladder.
Anyway, early in March 2008, I decided I finally had enough of all that, after another painful cramped shut bladder and a considerable wet spot in my underwear before I cramped shut, and that I would go back into diapers. I ordered diapers online and when I received them on the 11th of March 2008 I have gone back to wearing 24/7 and am until now. At first it was not intended as anything so permanent as I thought I might get tired of it or something, but diapers help me so much that about a year later I decided that this time was going to be permanent.
I have told my now girlfriend on the day I started. We got to know each other on the internet and back then I had visited her place twice and had seen her IRL about five times. I had known her for a few years (we were chatting a lot) back then and I dreaded her answer to my confession. She was very accepting and actually a bit interested. Soon after that event we started our relationship.
I moved into her place once I was able to and spent two years living with her. I took a job (that was too good to not accept) in another city two years ago and could only visit her every other weekend (where our scedules where both free). Recently she moved here as well, and we are again living together. She actually likes me being in diapers and won't allow me to walk around the flat without, mostly because I told her that I sometimes wet without noticing.
After I had gone back to 24/7 in 2008 I got very used to wearing diapers in all kinds of situations. Back then I sometimes had problems wetting when I was around other people and would even get that cramping problem because of it, but now I can wet just about everywhere. I have noticed that people don't notice what they don't expect if you don't rub their noses in it. Even being double diapered will not be noticed if you wear black jeans (you can not see exacts shapes as well when they are black) that where bought for being worn over diapers.
By now I am not really all that concerned anymore about people noticing. I still try to be relatively discreet and prefer not to be noticed, but the paranoia I had about it is totally gone. If someone notices, so what. I wear them because they help me cope with everyday life (and because it feels good).
I have decided that if I am ever asked about it I will bend the truth and say I had an accident (well I did wet myself that day, but people will think car crash or other injury) and have little control (which is true by now) and have to wear them (also true, since I would probably end up in wet trousers if I did not). I hate lieing, but I have no problem in nudjung people to fill the blanks I leave in my story in the way I want.
I think the fact that I decided to wear diapers as a choice, even though I was capable to live without, is not something most people would understand. So usually they would assume I had no choice back then, instead the reality that it was a choice back then and has gradually gone over to no choice over time.
Well, I notice that I have already written a massive post, so I leave it like that for now. Any questions, just ask. I will answer if it is not too personal.
