I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas time – I have been super busy. Lots going on including some sad news of losing a family member recently but I have been trying to keep an upbeat attitude from here on out. I was definitely in a mild depression for a few days but I am a big believer in we only have one life to live so try to not waste a day and pull yourself out of whatever rut you are in and move on. So, I have been slowly moving on and trying to manage to get my life a little more organized. Christmas was pretty mellow for the most part for us and we exchanged a few gifts. I got the typical work clothes, a few movies, gift cards and money…I know nothing too exciting. I really want a MAC laptop so I am debating on whether to buy one of those…pricey that is for sure.
I decided to take some pictures and figured I would quickly post one! Rockin the Victoria Secret baggy sweatpants – you girls out there know how comfy these things are! I practically live in these when I am at home. Check it out:
I got on my Teddy Bambinos – which I usually like to wear around the house and the Classico’s or Bianco’s out. I don’t know – no real reason for it – just picky I guess. I am trying to get better at posting photos – I have a lot of them I guess I just find it cumbersome to post photos on wordpress – its not very easy for me, maybe just because I am not that great with being efficient with wordpress. I swear there has to be an easier way and quicker way to add photos to wordpress. I feel like uploading the photo via the uploader then messing with the settings and inserting into post, adjusting position, etc. just takes a lot of time. I am a “drag and drop” type girl that just likes to be able to drag and drop and place a photo where I want it and not really deal with the coding aspect of it. Over the years though it has allowed me to learn a bit of HTML and CSS which is nice to know that I will admit.
I have been watching Bambino’s Facebook page and they are hinting at big things coming from them in the New Year – so definitely looking forward to what that brings. I personally like their new diaper, The Bellissimo, it fits me really well and I notice a difference with the absorbency. I would love to see them just come out with a specialty diaper that is just plain thick – it seems to be what a lot of ABDLs want but I understand the dynamics behind making these adult diapers so I can see where the challenges are with that.
What did everyone get for Christmas…I guarantee you a lot of you start listing Apple products 🙂 Lucky!
hello! this is unrelated to the current post, but i was wondering if i could get any advice on dealing with diapers while in college. im not really incontinent per say (some small stress incontinence problems) so have never worn diapers for that reason before, but due to the fact that i am out of the house while at college (not comfortable enough to tell my family about my thoughts on diapers) i was wondering if anybody could offer advice regarding how to deal with/find other people interested in diapers within a college community, or even just wear diapers without making it obvious to roomates, thanks!
You should defenatly think about getting a mac! I had one when studying photography at Uni and have never looked back. Even the Microsoft programmes for the Mac are more user friendly in my opinion and I teach IT using a windows PC and Microsoft products.
It’s good to see you back on here Adrian. I was beginning to think you had disappeared!?
In response to Austin. I believe that Adrian has done some posts on this in the past but it’s not something I had to deal with being a Nappy Lover rather than being in need of them. I imagine that it would be a case of wearing the thinnest diapers you can lay your hands on? Check these out
hope that helps
So sorry to hear about the loss of your relative over the holiday season. Next time you exchange gifts ask the people to pool their money in to get you a laptop … I want to get one too for school and charity work 🙂
Love the picture … Teddy Bambinos are some of my favorite things 🙂
I got two Bellissimos but I’m waiting to get through my open stack before I try them.
Have a Happy New Year 2012 !!!
Nice post Adrain. Sorry to hear about your losses. I had three family members die in 2010 so I understand the sadness.
I would agree with the previous posters in saying that Mac’s are nice. My desktop computer is a mac and my work computer is a mac laptop. I like the fact that Mac’s software is designed for only for a Mac which helps keep the possibilities of a virus low.
Also, I am not a wordpress user. I know its a very popular way to build a site. I know what you mean about how cumbersome it is to add pics and place them where you want and all that. I tried to build a site once using google sites. It was not very user friendly. I have built a blog instead which allows me to do just about everything else that I wanted a site for. I use blogger. Its much easier to navigate. The only problem is there is no ability to build sub pages which is a bit of a drag.
Anyways, love the site. Keep it up. Thanks for the heads up about the Bellissimos. Hadn’t heard of their arrival. And you are right though, just a super thick diaper with no regards how thick it is would be wonderful.
Happy New Year
@Austin: Treat the diapers like you would your underwear. Unless you go prancing about the halls and classes in just your undies, you won’t have a problem.
Discretion is important. So is learning to simply deal with it in more public spaces. You will be uncomfortable as hell the first time you change your diaper in a public restroom. Get over it. Treat it as a medical necessity, not a shamefull secret.
If people ask about them, let them know that you have a medical problem that makes them necessary. You don’t want surgery yet, and anyways, the success rates for various incontinence surgeries are not all that great. Catheters and leg-bags have problems too, namely infections, constricting circulation, and potential for breaking a connection (or like me, melting a hole in the bag!)
Don’t let people know that you actually enjoy wearing them unless you have become good friends and you are pretty confident they will understand the “other side” of your diapers.
Change often. Don’t leave a used diaper on for any longer than necessary, or you will get a rash. Not fun to deal with. Sweating will cause rashes too, if you’re not careful about changing frequently. Use powder, use barrier creams, and if a rash happens, get it checked out by a health-care professional.
Pack a bag (you’re-a-pee-in shoulder bag, backpack, duffel) with diapers, wipes, powder, barrier cream. Carry it with you all the time. People either won’t notice, or they’ll keep questions to themselves unless you shove it in their faces.
Disposal: Designate a garbage can (with lid) for diapers. Empty it frequently, use Lysol to clean it each time it’s emptied.
Last thing! Read Adrian’s posts here. She has provided a wonderful resource here for those who need and / or love diapers.
Thanks for the info 🙂 should i be worried about people finding out at all (roommate, friends, other students) as i am very worried about that happening, or are they usually easy to keep to yourself? also adrian you should try giving joomla a try 😀 its another cms but with my experience using it in the past, it looks to be highly customizable plus there is not much of a learning curve for it either!
In my limited experience people are usually ok with you needing them. Roommates and friends will probably find out fairly soon unless you are extraordinarily good at hiding them. Roomies will find stashes, friends will notice behavioral changes.
If you don’t want that to happen, do not wear diapers. If you can find it in yourself to get over the social stigma of needing them (read more of Adrian’s blog here), then you will have to talk to your roomies and friends about incontinence and how you have chosen to deal with it.
I know your feelings, I lost quite a few beloved family members in recent years, it helps remembering the good times, but it can also hurt quite a bit.
Also If you get Tigger’s advice and get a mac, I’d recommend the program mars edit, I use it with my wordpress, it makes updating very easy as well as adding photos
I should have asked for mor diapers for christmas lol. Now im back in wilmington, nc with a low supply grr
Rick, you live in Wilmington, NC? That’s where I went to college. Small world!
well first off thanks for taking the time for sharing/posting for us to read/enjoy!!
