I'm new to ADISC and it's nice to be part of this community
A not so brief history: I'm bedwetter & DL. The DL side comes since ever (2-3yo). I remember stealing some diapers of my cousins (yes, at that age! ^^ lol) and trying to putting me on. Many times I got caught, and my aunts and mom randomly checked if I was wearing diapers. With the passing of time and I growing up, access to diapers were just few. Then, at age of 14 I could finally buy my first package of GoodNites (green ones, in a 2x1 deal, only paying 55 MXN) and using them since that day. I also collect the PoP of GoodNites bag, except the fourth or fifth ones (because after that 4-5 bags I decided that will come more bags and I started to collect) Now I own 70.
The other side of my bedwetting issue, I remember having lots of accidents between 4 to 10yo, being at 9 the highest peak. My parents didn't noticed my accidents, just only the big ones before going to school. I wasn't afraid of wetting the bed, I remember sometimes that my mom said: "Have you peed yourself?" and then taking me to the shower, being indifferent.
At 12yo, accidents come back, and it was more easily to manage my accidents, one of then I remember is using a big pad made of several flannel clothes, above a transparent plastic and I sleeping only with a white t-shirt underwear, avoiding wet my underwear and pj pants.
Before the age of 14, on a visit to the supermarket I went through the diaper section and noticed that on one side were GoodNites underpants, and I noticed that are made for older children and thought: "I need to buy them, I'll figure how to buy them". A month after 14, I went to pharmacy to buy some bottles of Gatorade, and at the bottom I see the bag of GoodNites. I've grabbed 2 and paid a small amount of money. That day was weird and insane, I drinked the 2 bottles of Gatorade (about 1.4 liters, it's a sunny, dry and hot city, 49.8°C past july D: ) and that night I peed a lot, haha. Even my big bro noticed, but it wasn't a big issue, because I was wearing a GoodNites underpants. Since this day my big bro started the "pee" jokes.
Now, I think that my DL "feeling" is passing away, but keeping the bedwetting accidents. Few moths ago I noticed that I was not the only one who likes wearing diapers, then realized the whole lot of people who likes too. Even I get noticed some people locally also likes diapes, for the fact of a small city.
My last "big" accident, was two week ago. I've fall asleep at the living room and wet the sofa bed. My mom was on the PC and I told her that I wet the bed (that one and mine). Then we started a looong conversation of what happened, and she told me she used to wet the bed, so does my grandpa and one of my aunts. She also asked me why I didn't tell her and what I do to manage my accidents. Regarding of the past accidents where she noticed, she thinked that was ocassionally and related as something normal in the childhood, not linked as an hereditary issue.
