I seem to be sliding into a 24/7 lifestyle...

As I continue my progression back into my DL lifestyle I am finding that I am slowly but surely heading toward wearing more than not. This will likely end up in a modified 24/7 if my suspicions about being able to sleep well in my ATNs is confirmed tonight.

Since I work at home it is no problem to use a diaper until it is full and then change it in the privacy of my own bathroom. No worries about co-workers for me!:thumbsup:

I am about to head out in public for the first time with a proper diaper on. I am even planning to go see a neighbor who is in a Rehab Nursing Home from breaking both her ankles. I will have a certain amount of pleasure knowing that I am wearing in a high incon zone... that may be bad, but it will have a certain irony to it.

If this all goes well I may increase my wearing time to include more public outings. We shall see...

Cool. Sounds like fun. I couldn't ever do the 24/7 thing. But I know of several here that are doing it or want to one day do it.

I'm currently wearing ATNs in public a lot and I think you'll really like it and that no one will notice :)

That's how it worked with me too. After I was introduced to diapers and was on my own I just started wearing more and more often. Now I'm padded 24/7. It's something I never would have thought I would want before, but now I can't stand to be without a diaper on.

I went out yesterday with a boosted Depends (using up my old stash after which it is ATNs all the way for a basic diaper). It went well.

It has been about 20 years since I was able to do 24/7 and I forgot how easy it can be to get irritated. I probably have to choose between enjoying the feeling of messing by leaving it for a long enough time to begin to irritate my skin or a 24/7 lifestyle, and I suspect I will find a happy medium with regular breaks in between.

One thing I have noticed; I am back to a point where using the toilet seems like such a waste... :eek!:

Today has been a dry day due to having so many things to do and the need to give my skin a break.

Not sure what tomorrow will bring. Got a bunch to do then, and Thursday too. Might be that Thursday afternoon is my first good chance to relax. Wednesday night might also be a chance to relax.

Got a good nights sleep last night and hope to do so tonight. I want to try wearing to bed again but want a solid stretch of good sleep first just in case...

Nighty night! :bedtime:

A few things you could try for diaper rash while 24/7 are ointments, baby powder, breathable diapers, drinking more water throughout the day, and changing faster. Incase you want to wear more but can't because of rash. I've totally felt the same way about toilets being a waste btw, when you enjoy going in a diaper so much it makes using a toilet disappointing for me.

I've been feeling the call too. I have a bunch of older diapers that are getting to the point where they should be used up, so I've started wearing them during the day hours. O.G. Unique Wellness (green larges) with a stuffer. Two of them get me through a work shift and then some. Use my Rearz Inspire or ABU w/stuffer at night (or a Rearz with wtuffer if I've been consuming a lot of fluids).

I'm just going to ride it as long as I feel it. There are definitely times where it's an inconvenience. Tonight at work we were busy and I really needed to change, and it was a while before I had a chance. But that fresh padding feeling afterwards though... so heavenly.

I can wear for an extended period of time but I don't think that I could go 24/7 though, and I have no problem going out and wearing them in public.

I've been 24/7 for 23 days now and I didn't plan for this. I agree with mattikins saying just ride it out as long as you want to

Wearing 24/7 is no problem, I have an OAB and flood randomly with little or no warning I wear an Abena air plus level 2 medium size or the M4 and have no issue. The M4 is a bit thicker so it a little bulkier but you really have to look to see I am wearing. No one has ever said anything or shown that they think I am wearing.

Pick the right diaper and you won't have a problem you can even go with pants that ar one size bigger to give the diaper more room and to help hide it. Also wearing a longer shirt also helps.

I am finding old patterns emerge. I tend to wear for a period, then take a break. I have gone more than 24 hours, but since I tend to wear a diaper for quite some time I find taking a break is a good idea to let my skin recover. Ointments and creams help, but a break works best. This is all so new yet so old to me I am not fully clear on where I will end up on the spectrum at this point.

What I do know is that it is helping me cope with a very difficult time in my life, and that is what is most important. It is harder to be unhappy when I am in my nappy, I guess...:biggrin:

I usually wear cloth (my preference) but I have a big stash of disposables mostly the wing kind that my incontinent mother didn't want so I'm trying to use them up so I have more room on my shelves. I find I'm wearing them more and more.

I decided to start wearing nappies all the time about a year ago maybe a little longer. Now I couldn't imagine going back. I am incontinent so do need nappies but thoroughly enjoy wearing them now.

Were you going with a cath before? I can't imagine how anyone would prefer a cath over diapers.


"Cath goes WHERE???!"

I have always made excuses, kind of like a smoker or drug addict, I can quit at any time. But I find my times with out wearing slowly grow shorter every year. For family reasons and compromise I dont wear on family vacations or family weekend days. But I am aware my usage continues to go up and periods where I dont wear at all have all but gone away. Its a natural evolution for many of us. And like you they have gotten me through some challenges since 2008.

And like you they have gotten me through some challenges since 2008.

Definitely. I just went through what was by far and away the worst thing that ever happened to me and I am well on my way to a healthy recovery due in part to my reverting to past habits and fetishes. The irony is that this particular fetish is perfect for my needs as it helps distance me from my wife which I desperately needed given that I loved her so deeply prior to all this.

That was the hardest part to cope with; having someone you love so much turn on you like a rabid dog for no good reason. It turns out to be the result of the three extended PTSD type events (mother, father and previous husband) which for all intents and purposes made her mentally ill. I base this conclusion on a careful review of my behavior and while I can see things I did that were not good choices or would be somewhat hurtful I cannot find anything that would cause a mentally healthy person to abandon me. Her behavior is the result of being unable to believe I am actually a good person that does not want to hurt her. She literally cannot recognize that a person can be like me so she subtly altered her perception of me until it drifted beyond all recognition at which point a small event blew up into a divorce for no good reason.

As such I needed to deal with incredibly painful and difficult emotions that pretty much destroyed me for the better part of a month and which took several months to even begin to heal from. During that time I found that wearing diapers really helped me put distance between me and her in that she would freak if she knew so by wearing diapers I made her incompatible with me. Doing this helped me let go of my love, which I had to do in order to survive. She literally forced me to crush my own heart, and by doing something that made her so incompatible with my lifestyle made it so much easier.

Another way in which it helped was to just make me feel good at a time when I desperately needed to feel good. I find this somewhat ironic when reading about the angst some of our members go through as a result of the way society looks at our behavior, but in my case I am immune to the social views so can take solace in my personal feelings. I have had many moments during this time when I am basically blissed out in my diaper, and that really made a huge difference. Having all those good body chemicals coursing through my brain really eased the pain of the loss, and so I sit here in my boosted Abena with a much lighter mind than I otherwise would have.

So I can appreciate your comment as it is very true for me too!

I was really talking more from the position of financial stress...However around the same time I also went through a divorce with a Bi-polar and PTSD suffering woman that had priorities other then me, a strange relationship with her mother and insane fears. With a fantastic partner now I sometimes forget that that did leave a huge mark on me.

I just read your message and saw "with a fantastic partner now" and it immediately warmed my heart to be reminded that I will find a better partner in the future. I know this at some level but my version of AB inside me - as in the little boy that never really goes away - is once again terrified of having to find a female partner. As well as I have that part of me under control, I really neither needed nor appreciate being put in a position where that little boy is once again afraid.

I am really hoping that the pattern I have established in my life where I move on from such events to an even better place is once again true, and this time with a person that can share my DL fetish with me. In reading the posts of those that have such a partner I can really see how wonderful and loving it must be. Our fetish brings out the loving person in most of us I suspect, so in that regard it is actually something that may be part and parcel of the package if I can ever find such a woman.

Thanks for your comment. I know you made it in passing, but it was very nice to read.
