First, I should mention that I'm currently back home with my parents because university ended and I haven't found a decent job yet, and they also know about my diaper fetish.
So why talk about it at all then?
I feel like I should set them straight on a few things. Or at least my mom.
First, I'm 25 years old, almost 26. I've held a job for three years, though I'm trying to get a better one that will pay enough to move out on. I help with costs such as groceries and gas when I can (this job doesn't pay much; last monthly paycheck was $120). I help out around the house, for free unless I need a boost to my income.
I feel this sense of responsibility entitles me to behave however I want in my life, and that includes buying and using diapers, bottles, pacifiers and such to help me cope with the difficulties life is presenting me.
So I'm going to sit down with my mom first and have a one-on-one with her. I want her to understand that although I love her and know she loves me, I can't help but feel that her disapproving attitude is hindering me from achieving my fullest potential. Too much time is wasted worrying about whether I will get caught, and it's adding to the stress that I wear diapers in order to remove in the first place. I'm also going to make it clear that, up until now, I've paid for the diapers, I've disposed of them in a sanitary fashion, I've kept myself clean, and I don't stink up the place. I am still interested in the opposite sex, and I still enjoy all the same things that they know I love. In other words, nothing will have changed, except for the fact that she'll know and that I want her to not bother me about it no matter how much she is bothered by the concept. I'm a man, and I can make these decisions without her consent, but I chose to talk to her about it anyway. Besides, I still respect that it's their house, not mine, and so I feel the need to be up front about this.
The only thing I would require is for her to ignore the bottom drawers in the chest so I can have a nice place to store my clean diapers and hygienic baby care products, as well as keeping a small garbage pail in my room inside the closet so I have a place to throw away used diapers.
I'm no exhibitionist, but I've worn around them a million times without them knowing, which is a fact I will point out to prove that they wouldn't be bothered physically by me.
Mom can worry about me all she wants. She's a parent; it's her job. But I would appreciate understanding and allowing me to practice my fetish unmolested.
I'll probably be addressing this sometime during the afternoon.
