A Simple Accident Now I'm Incontinent
At the tender age of eight I was standing on a chair in the bathroom at home trying to clip the plastic curtain back on the rail above the bathtub when I accidentally toppled backwards falling into the bathtub.
The finger grip of the tap handle slammed into my skull penetrating the bone and leaving me impaled on the tap. I was rushed off to hospital, I don't recall the incident as I had suffered a brain injury.
When I woke I was in a room and one of the first things I noticed was the feeling of something between my legs, I lifted the bedclothes and saw that I was wearing a diaper I was shocked. Later that morning I was told by the doctor that I would be incontinent due to the injury I had sustained.
I had to wear diapers when I went home with mum as she had been told of my disability, she was very good and had made me special shorts that were big enough to cover my diapers.
I have had to wear diapers now for many years and could write a book on the experiences I have had when people have discovered that I wear diapers, some have been positive yet others have been far from helpful.
There still seems to be quite a stigma about incontinent folk which I find ridiculous as incontinence can't be helped in most cases and most incontinent folk are we qualified to be in control of their situation with adequate knowledge of preventing soiling outside of their diaper.
As an adult I have experienced ridicule from so called intelligent people, education is a wonderful thing, it's a shame there are so many dummies in this beautiful world.
