Something that EPO1 said in a thread somewhere else made me wonder. The topic under discussion was a new diaper that can apparently hold an absurd five liters of liquid (as if anyone really needs a diaper that can hold that much liquid).
His comment pointed out that absurdity as well as the equally absurd claim that this "feature" made the diaper ideal for the incontinent community. Which incontinent people, he wondered aloud, would want such a thing? He went on to explain (to an audience that included both IC's and non-IC's) that in his opinion such a diaper might be of interest to AB's but not to IC's, as it would be entirely impractical due to its thickness, its weight when full, and the sheer inability of any normal person to use it to that degree anyway (which would result in waste).
He further stated that he did not think that there were many IC's who were involved in the ABDL community. And that's the part I wanted to ask about.
I've been pretty open about the fact that, for pretty much all of my life, I have had a fascination with diapers and with being babied. I've explained the reasons and the history of this elsewhere. http://www.adisc.org/forum/greetings...ng-myself.html For most of my adult life, the AB thing has lived as a fantasy (which is where I mostly think it belongs after a certain age, but that's just me). But then...
Three months ago I quite suddenly but very completely became incontinent. Now my ABDL history has no doubt helped me to accept this much more easily than I might have otherwise and certainly has helped me handle the diapers. And I admit that I do find myself wishing that my husband, who is definitely NOT into the AB thing, would baby me a bit since I'm stuck this way anyway. But (other than wearing some Bambino Teddies I bought on a lark when all of this started) I have not done any role-playing or any such thing. IC is serious; I don't know why it is happening. AB just makes it easier to digest.
ARE there other IC people who find themselves with AB feelings, either from before they became incontinent (like me) or perhaps from having to wear the diapers themselves and trying to find an emotional outlet?
