- Adult Baby, Diaper Lover, Incontinent
You have no idea what it was like. The VA had almost nothing to offer. On the private market back then mentioning anything to do with incontinence was like saying you had leprosy. It was something not talked about in polite company. The stuff available was either so bulky unless you were a girl who could cover it up with a dress even then she would be walking bowlegged like a ninety year old cowboy. For us guys tuff luck. On the other side it was so thin and leaked so bad you might as well save your money and not wear anything. For the first few years I wore cloth diapers and plastic pants and with the right clothes you could reasonably keep it hidden.. but you wore clothes that made you look like a dork. In the mid seventy's they started coming out with some IC supplies that made it easier to deal wit it but it was a far cry from whats available today. People with IC today do'nt know how good they have it. Now I wear biaco ultra stretch disposables away from the house and cloth and plastic pants at home.Those of you who have been in nappies for a number of decades, presumably you had to cope with full-time wearing before quality adult disposables existed, which must have been challenging...
