Thread: The Stages of Growing Up to Be an AB/DL

  1. #1

    Question The Stages of Growing Up to Be an AB/DL

    Having been around the AB/DL internet community for many years, I know we all have our stories of how we got here. As someone who never was externally exposed to diapers outside babyhood (no bed wetting or diapering against my will), I'm curious if my own little path to adulthood is shared by others. Not wanting to make a story of my life, I quickly thought of 20 stages (seriously - in under 3 minutes ) that I went through from about age 4 until now (28).

    1. Fascination
    2. Getting a Diaper and Innocent Diaper Play
    3. More Fascination
    4. Secret Diaper Play
    5. Using the Diaper
    6. Guilt and Purge
    7. Making a Diaper and Using It
    8. Guilt and Purge
    9. Buying a Diaper and Using It
    10. Purge (Throwing Half of them Away) - repeat step 9&10 5 times
    11. Depression and Feeling Alone
    12. You are not alone - thank you Internet
    13. More Binge a Purge - repeat too many times
    14. A place of your own
    15. Acceptance of yourself
    16. Buy, buy, buy
    17. Relationships - hide/purge
    18. Depression - no one to play with
    19. Leap of faith - tell someone you love
    20. Nirvana - she accepts you, now get on with your life (and be an AB/DL on nights and weekends)

    Anyone else want to take a stab or care to comment?

    This is an interesting exercise but I can't say that I was able to rattle this off in just a few minutes. I've got a bit more history than you and to get the important bits down in the timeline and keep it to twenty (which really should be plenty) was challenging. Like you, mine starts pretty early, I'd say age three, so it's covering a forty year span. Looking over it, there's a whole lot of negative stuff in there. I sure wish I could send my younger self a message and let him know that it would be okay.

    1. Curiosity
    2. Attempts at acquiring diapers thwarted
    3. Dormancy punctuated by occasional episodes
    4. Trigger conversation with a friend
    5. Obsession with the idea
    6. Acquisition
    7. Use in masturbation
    8. Guilt
    9. First purchase
    10. Desires grind against guilt and result in social withdrawal
    11. Unhappy equilibrium
    12. Adult toys catalog describes ABDL video- I am not alone
    13. First appearance of ABs on television talk show- disgusting
    14. Small stash discovered- traumatic confrontation defused with lies and evasion
    15. Purge
    16. Repeat 14 & 15 some time later
    17. Internet discovery. I am still repulsed.
    18. Living on my own, acquisition begins again and I come to terms with it for myself as a value neutral disability but have no interaction with the community
    19. Attempt real interaction with the community
    20. Friendships with others drive unanticipated self-acceptance and I see it as a positive for the first time

    I'm not going to post a list only for the sake that Jack's initial list is very similar to mine. A lot of times I was questioning myself - "What am I doing?!". A lot of buying/throwing away. Now I've just come to terms!

    6b internet and WetSet

    I think 1-10 are about ages 5 to 14 an 12. was age 19. Finding DPF and DD and ADISC fit in there somewhere too.

    Same with me. It's strange to think that not only am i one of the few *B/DL's in the world, but we all share a similar cycle of life when dealing with this... well, idk what to refer to this as.... this part of us.

    Same except i thought it was something i should grow out of or not do or something between the ages of 13 and 50, then still having the desire realized it wasn't hurting anyone and it helped me relax and so I started again.

    It looks familer but there was a period where I found Deeker and was incredibly creeped out by the whole thing and my desires pretty much disappeared until I was 15.

    Also I am always fairly active on message boards when I am not in a purge phase. And I am mainly hanging around right now because of my *B side since DL is away on a purge.

    Not on step 17 yet, but I am looking.

    That's an awesome summary of the road to becoming a DL. At least I can relate. Good post.
