This day and age lots of people of all ages wear diapers for various medical reasons. They have learned to adapt their lives to having to be in diapers. Given up things they once could do.

most times of when or where your diaper is changed or how long
your in a wet or messy diaper before they will change you again.
24) Tape tabs can totally snap off and the diaper open up and leak.
Now don't get me wrong. I didn't make this page to convince people not to wear diapers. Just to think about it before doing it. I have been in diapers since I was 13 years old at night for bed wetting and in diapers during the day since I was 20. I am 27 now. It's taken me going on 14 years to not only get used to being in the diapers themselves, but to find ways to hide them both at home and in public. Some good tips for hiding them in public is:
Wearing snug underpants (the breifs kind) over the diaper. It keeps the diaper tight and from rusting. Another trick is to wear your keys on a clip or ring on your waist side. The jingling of the keys as you walk also help hide the sound of the diaper. Keeping plastic wrapped candy in your pockets is great for when someone does hear you and asks what the plastic sound is, you can produce the candy and say "You must have heard this" and then offer them some. Wear pants/shorts that are a size or two larger. This will help hide the outline of the diaper from showing through your pants/shorts.
Another thing I had to learn to battle was diaper rash. It becomes much more of a problem when you wear 24/7. Your skin doesn't get a break like you do when you only wear on the weekend. What I do is use baby powder with corn startch in it. It costs the same as regular baby powder and it absorbs some sweat to a degree. When a rash does start to form, I use Balmex diaper rash cream. I know there are alot out there, but I find this one works great.
