I have been on the site for several years now, but I don't think I ever posted an introduction. I will start from when I was a toddler. From what I can tell I was toilet trained when I was about 2 years old, but I remember having "accidents" at preschool, this resulted me in being sent to the two year old room and having to wear diapers for the rest of the day. Until I was about 5 my grandma would put me in a diaper everyday after preschool when she would put me down for my nap, and I was kept like that for the rest of the day, so this might have something to do with why I still like wearing diapers. I wet the bed regularly until I was about 7(1992), as a result my mom would keep me in diapers in the evening after my bath. My bed wetting after that was so sporadic maybe 3-4 times a month, this was a relief for my parents since diapers at the time only went up to size 5.
When I was in the 4th grade I started saving my allowance money and buying my own diapers and pullups, getting to the store was always the easy part for me. I would usually get one of my parents to drop me off at the downtown library, I would spend several hours there, and then I would go to the mall next door where they had a convenience store, if they didn't have what I needed I would walk several blocks to Walgreens. The hard part for me at the time was actually buying them, because I would always wonder what the store clerks would think of a elementary or middle school age kid buying diapers by himself. When I was in high school I would mainly use Huggies Pull-ups and Pampers Cruisers.
For a while after high school I would use Huggies Convertibles, and was sad when they discontinued them, because they actually fit a whole lot better than the Cruisers at the time. I continued to use Huggies Pull-ups until a couple of years ago when the made them smaller. The previous Pullups with the blue sides fit perfectly, but when the Cars pullups came out they made them smaller. When I first got them I thought I had picked up the wrong size, but after inspecting them they were a 4T-5T. I then though that I might have got a bad batch, but after reading the reviews I found out they a lot of other parents had the same issue. I was very disappointed in Kimberly-Clark for modifying their product the way they did.
To this day the Pullups with the blue sides still fit me, I still have about a dozen of them left, but I don't want to use them. The Cars pullups I use a stuffers inside my underwear when I am at home, or in a Pampers Crusier size 7 when I am away from the house. I also still wet the bed on occasion; since I live a home I wear diapers so I don't have to disrupt my parents by having to get up several times a night, they get irritated when I have to go the restroom more than once at night. Wearing diapers to bed has never caused me any social issues; when I would go tent camping with the Children's or Youth groups at my church they helped prevent the embarrassing situation of having to leave the tent several times a night to use the restroom. I just made sure I used the restroom before bed to avoid any leaks, in the morning I would wake up early and head to the showers where I would dispose of the diaper. This past summer I was a counselor at a week long camp with my church where we went cabin camping. The camp was for 3rd-6th graders, and I was sharing a cabin with 2 other adults and 12 5th grade boys; nobody ever found out I wore diapers to bed. I would keep my diapers in compartment in my toiletries bag, and would change in one of the private stalls we had(each room had 4 of them). In the mornings I would wake up at about 5:30 and dispose of it in the restroom trash.
I am sorry for the rather verbose post, but since I never gave a formal intro when I first joined this site. I felt like I should tell what my situation is.
