Well, yeah, like I just posted here - https://www.adisc.org/forum/diaper-t...ml#post1066478 - I suddenly needed to restock on "actual diapers" and seems every CVS in my corner of New England no longer stocks the actual taped Depend diapers - instead the starter packs and yet-more-discreet variants of the pullups are taking over the shelf (as well as those very-convenient value packs of the pillups so can't complain about thaaaat part).
Barkattheuniverse that I only even wanted to be in pullups to begin with, but I was starting to get used to taping myself up at night or when I could (and that seemed to make an encouraging person happy and that's a lot of what I like about staying padded!) ... I don't see any other posts but I dunno if the search here thinks "CVS" is too short to search.
Do these things still exist retail at other pharmacy chains? Am I horrible and gross for buying in a store at all? (Well, hopefully not, but think about that if you're gonna ewww at someone for doing it and make them feel like an awful creeper maybe? After a few times of blushing it's just like buying slightly awkward groceries for everyone involved. I just started to think of it as 'needing' them and taking a ride in the same boat with those who absolutely do.)
If they're really disappearing, any suggested alternatives for someone who turned out to like the fit / needs the capacity and pretty much found a way to fit them in the budget? I'd hope this means store brand gets a whole lot better but I kinda doubt it in the short term since they've always been a little or a lot wrong? [But I haven't tried any since 2 or 3 years ago, none of the Walgreens stuff rolled out in their product refresh - I got the last of some of their old weird 'go up to your chest' pullups clearance while they were putting the new stuff on the shelf] ... Just a little neurotic about the whole thing, I'd found something I was comfortable with and then suddenly I notice it *poofed* in the usual place I look. (And that raises my sympathies to what everyone who can't just "take a day off" in the worst case must be going through, though I gotta figure I'm late to the grapevine if the last package lasted me 3+ months or something? It's the pullups that I gotta buy every other week, but I was starting to get more crinkly more often. *o_o*)
