I want to talk about the awkward moments that comes with being an AB/DL, especially when it comes to our family members.
I will start with my personal experiences. I have been caught by my parents about 3 or 4 times with adult diapers as a kid, starting from the age of 12/13, again at 16, and again at 19. I was never good at hiding diapers.
I would never tell my mum or dad why I liked diapers, I simply didn't want to. It was my thing I wanted to deal with myself. I did not want to talk to anyone about it.
My parents did like not the fact I liked/kept diapers. They hated it and thought it was abhorrent. They thought that I was deeply psychologically disturbed because of my diapered desires...
I do not talk about my DLism around my parents, and these days I generally get along with them, however whenever I see or visit them, at the back of my mind the diaper subject lingers in my brain.
- If I am watching TV with them and a diaper advert/commercial is shown, I shiver on the inside and I feel awful.
- If the subject of babies or toddlers comes up in conversation with them, I am terrified that the topic will turn to diapers.
- If (in the future) my girlfriend falls pregnant and we have a child, what happens if I need to change their diaper in front of my parents? I am dreading this.
- If I walked down the diaper/nappy aisle in the supermarket with my parents, I would feel nervous and uneasy.
I wanted to know if anyone else has had these sort of feelings, and how they cope with them. I am a happy DL, I love my diapers just like you guys do. They make me feel happy, and safe. But these sort of feelings still linger on (I am 22 now) and float about in my mind whenever my parents are around.
