Wearing diapers/ nappies

At times I am embarrased to wear one because of prostate issues. Growing old sucks. But in May that may be a thing of the past as I have found a physician who can do a resection using a technique that maintains function.

I also found Rezum water vapor which is an In office procedure that shrinks the prostrate. I think he prefers that instead. You might want to look at that too.

These two procedures are newer and are mentioned togther.

Apparently there is a neurological connection with incontinence and autism.

That said, I think if adults find comfort in a type of underwear that is hardly going to be seen by anyone else, then the problem is?

In a humorous light, I imagine that nappies would actually be far more comfortable than regular underwear; imagine sitting on a hard bike saddle with that extra padding for comfort.

We have friends with a lad, 15 now, who is Fragile X, has always been in nappies and likely always will be.

Maybe whether for a medical reason or not, if a person wears nappies as a preference, I don't think 'weirdo' at all, more that there are far more important things going on in the world to be worrying about.

Each to their own.
I have autism +dd and have been in diapers for 30yrs besides being funcitional they make me secure.

Hi there everyone.

I also do wear diapers. I have had mild to moderate fecal incontinence all my life. I was also a bed wetter until about 16 years old. Even so I didn't wear diapers back then even though that would have been a better option compared to how I was treated as a bed wetter. The fecal incontinence was admittedly mild & often just barely got any on my underclothes. I did also suffer from constipation often simultaneously as my stools were often quite hard & when I got sufficiently backed up irritation would cause some diarrhea which would work its way around the hardened stools so I would end up leaking a little of this untill I could get the constipation to clear.

Years later I developed an anal fizzure which made it painful to go #2. This took 14 years to heal. During this time my inner sphincter became very restrictive & I spent up to 3 weeks at times unable to go. I couldn't push it out without an urge which I would lose as soon as it became painful. This caused me rectum to mecome stretched out of shape & any attempt to go without having an urge would cause an anal prolapse which would further block any stool exit.

I finally figured out How to get the anal fizzure to heal but oth damage was done. After my stroke my doctor prescribed stool softeners. With the stool softeners mu stools became so soft that I could not keep them from leaking so diapers became a full time form of underwear for me.

There was other medical benefits I found as well for me wearing diaper even previously. I had developed myoclonus which is a close cousin to epilepsy. This was causing me highly embarrassing spasms which would occur over a hundred times a day. One night I had a dream that I had wet the bed. I didn't but I wondered how I would feel waking up in a wet diaper. I grabbed on of my girlfriends pull up diapers, put it on & wet it then went back to bed. When I woke up my spasms were all but gone, only 3 that day. Did same next night & no spasms at all next day. I found I was able to relax more. I still only did this at night but did test different diapers to use while on the truck but none were passable in terms of trusting against leakage & I was driving brand new Kenworth trucks at the time. I didn't start wearing full time until after my stroke.

After my stroke my balance has been way off & as a result diapers help such that I don't have to try to rush to the toilet & potentially fall.

I can't say that there wasn't a sexual aspect initially as well but that has become less of a focus. It is mostly now safety & comfort now as it calms my nerves some & prevents those horrible spasms as well as reduces risk of falling.

I am sad to hear of your chronic condition. This past year was challenging for me with incontinence due to a prostate issue. It took three surgeries to clear that up and while in the hospital cardiology noted an issue that was on the edge of killing me, so I ended up with open heart surgery.

Ouch sorry to hear that. Hopefully you are doing much better now.
