Quick response to a question about the differences between my sister and i. Well we are in some ways a lot alike which probably is why we don’t always get a long – but I think deep down inside I think the whole diaper thing has always made her a little uncomfortable. As you all know I have worn my entire life and even though very few people knew in our lives I think in a way it made her uncomfortable because she never wanted to explain to anyone. Of course, I could be wrong because we have never exactly talked about it but anyways..thats kind of a really quick story. Though I am really excited that she is coming because we still are sisters and have a lot of fun together!
I went to buy some diapers at work today from a local drug store while I was at lunch. It has been a while since I have gone to buy diapers from somewhere like that but I need to restock my filing cabinet and I didn’t wnat to bring my nice diapers from home. The ones that I got through are not good at all! when i changed into them at work they cut into me the entire time and almost felt like square or something they would not fold into my body at all. Has anyone found any good ones at a drug store or walmart or somewhere like that?.
I can understand somewhat about that. My girlfriend was incontinent until 2 years ago (bladder spasms). She has became better able to “hold it” with bad urgency problems after childbirth. I know her sister was accepting, but embarrassed… (though the sister never had the wet pants/skirts). Ah well.. I am glad you two get along. I’ve always regretted not having siblings. I hope you two have a great time together. 🙂
I have yet to see any store that carries the (sub)standard brands that aren’t shaped weird (on me) or that aren’t uncomfortable. The older depends in the early 90’s and attends (also in the 90’s) were pretty decent, but in the last decade I haven’t found a single one that I would wear… I’m not even talking about absorbency… I would also like to know if anyone has found anything that is decent.
Where were the cuts? On the inner thigh or outer thigh? I get cuts from the cheaper brands in between the bottom of my thigh and outside of the thigh. 🙁
Hi Stacy, I love reading the blog. I’m sorry to read about the awkwardness between you and your sister. It’s sad that diapers of all things can hurt relationships with family. It’s horrible how stigmatized diapers are. Anyway, I always wear those poor quality diapers from the drugstore because I’m too lazy to order them. I was wondering if they truly were that much better and what kind do you like to wear?
