Hi,

I have just discovered and registered here. I am autistic (Asperger Syndrome), and study chemistry as a postgraduate student in the UK.

I have always had some problems with incontinence, since due to sensory problems (that are common in autistics) I have problems telling if my bladder is full, especially if I am concentrating on something. This used to lead to smaller accidents (where I would just notice that I had to go, when I started loosing urine), and during stressful times to major ones (where I would just suddenly notice my wet pants).

In the past, I have only worn diapers during thos more stressful times in my life, but in March this year, I started wearing diapers, to see how much stress reduction it would bring during 'normal' times. The stress reduction was tremendous.

After a bit of thinking, I decided that, even given the risk that I could eventually lose bladder control, the stress reduction was worth wearing diapers 24/7. I have been wearing diapers ever since. Well, me being a DL before that, might have been a reason for this 'overkill'-Solution. ;)

Another advantage, that I did not even consider when making that decision is that I can now drink enough without risking wet clothes. So I managed to slip out of the constant mild dehydration that was just 'normal' for me before.

I am waering Abena X-Plus whenever I stay home for some time, and Abena Super while I am at the University or otherwise out. I am currently testing Tena Maxi as an alternative to the Abena Super, since they seem to have more capacity, without bein as conspicuous as the Abena X-Plus.

When I started wearing full time, I stopped being weary to make sure I kept my pants dry. This has resulted in a lot less stress (which was my goal). I did not stop the flow anymore, when I noticed that I was wetting, and just let it happen. The 'wetting accidents' got considerably more frequent, and by April I often only noticed that I was wetting, when I was in the middle of it. Right now, I sometimes even wet without noticing at all.

Since I accepted the possibility that I would lose bladder control, this has not been a scary experience, but instead an iteresting one. Loss of bladder control was not my goal, but a possible 'side effect'.

Welcome to the forum! I have a brother who was recently diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome late in high school. If you don't mind me asking, how long have you known you had Asperger Syndrome? Sorry if i'm prying a bit.

Welcome to the site.

There are a couple others here with AS so you certainly aren't the only one (hint! ;))

Good luck with the chemistry, hope you enjoy it.

And last but not least: don't be too shy to post, we don't bite (hard :p)

Enjoy!

I was diagnosed on the 19.04.2007, but I was quite sure even a few months before that.

But I have always known that I am different... ...I just did not have a name for it...

Hey! Welcome to the site! Glad you have been able to use your liking of diapers to your advantage. They are sure great to have in those stressful situations where you are afraid you might leak.

I, too, have AS (I don't feel like spelling it...even though I am writing this sentence to explain that I don't want to spell it, even though I could have just spelled it and saved a bunch of time), and I am going to be taking Chem. next year in high school...I am so screwed (Something to b**** about later...).

I don't have any sensory problems, in fact I have an extremely strong bladder (hold for 8+ hours while awake and active). A book that has helped me understand myself greatly: All Cats Have Aspergers Syndrome by Kelly Hoopman.

Somehow I think everyone that has AS has this because so far I've heard that from everyone and agree with it myself.

Welcome

I understand your comments on the benefits of stress relief as I have IBS and when it kicks the only way I can get any sleep is to wear a diaper.
My other half works with Autistic young people so I have a lot of understanding of your position and have always been amazed at how well many of these kids cope and how intelligent many of them are, its a shame that they are so misunderstood by society at large.
Hope you enjoy the group.

Yes, but even though from the outside it might seem that I cope very well, this is only because I have managed to hide my problems. I still have all the probelems associated with autism.
Yes... ...misunderstandings are very frequent... ...the way NT's think is alien to me, I live in a world that is alien to me. I have been studying human behaviour like an antropologist, and try to make sense of it. From this model I try to predict the behaviour of others, and mimic some stuff. It works quite well most of the time.

Maybe me being an aspie is why I'm so good with computers. Or maybe it's me not being comfortable around others that lead me to be good with it. I still haven't learned to cope with it and have no problems except for the social interaction. The fact that doctors told me I was likely to of had it all my life and I didn't even know about it is freaky. It was my junior high school english teacher that told my mom that she thought I had it and I did all these tests to test for it and I did have it. I have tried to hide it ever since and am JUST now not caring if someone knows I have it or not. Well, nice to meet you. And just maybe, there's more people like us that like diapers and then I wouldn't have to hide it and have a valid reason to tell my parents so I don't have to hide them lol.

Hey there DA, welcome to the boards.

AS is one of those conditions that I'm really starting to think should not be treated as a real "mental condition" because the people that have it are usually the smartest people you can find. My cousin who has AS is shooting for a National Merit scholarship, something that requires a nearly perfect PSAT score. I've been told that my own IQ could be 140 - but I'm convinced that my cousin is smarter that I am.

Often times I've wondered if I myself have AS, but have declined to be diagnosed either way simply because I don't wish to know. My gut feeling, though, is that I do have AS because I struggle socially. (I also have ADHD which is why I go to a small private school in my area.)

But enough about me. There's been a lot of AS-related discussion on here in the past because many ADISC members have it. So I guarantee you'll feel right at home here.
