So I'm just wondering, what was it like for you guys growing up incontinent?
I personally remember my childhood being a constant stream of embarrassment and feeling ashamed at not being able to use the toilet like the other kids. My family kind of treated me as the 'baby' of the household even though I wasn't the youngest kid there, and constantly told me off when I wet the bed or my pants. I've never really been out of nappies for an extended period of time, but there were a few times my parents 'rewarded' me by letting me out of them, of course this made it much more embarrassing when I wet myself and there was nothing to absorb it!!! I would sometimes ask for stuff like games consoles, or to go to see a film and theyd just say 'oh no, that stuff is for the big kids!!' School life wasn't much better. For PE I usually had to change my clothes in another room so no one would see the diaper, but it was pretty much always obvious that my butt was padded thanks to the annoyingly small shorts they made us wear for the uniform. I got asked about it a lot by people, and once got pantsed wearing a diaper, something which followed me through pretty much the whole year. Sleepovers were impossible for me, I had to avoid them like the plague (and the one time I did have a sleepover my nappy ended up leaking at night so I got my friends other bed completely soaked... luckily his mum cleared it up without him seeing!) there were a few other times other kids found out , usually I got mocked horribly since kids can be pretty cruel... I did make one friend who had similar problems to me (though only at night, not 24/7 like me) and we bonded a little over that. Overall though I think my childhood could have been a lot better, and it caused me to develop depression and self esteem issues that I'm only getting out of now.
