“No one ever tells you how fucking uncomfortable you’re going to be in an adult diaper. I had a C-section and I was so sore. Getting up and moving anywhere was hard. There were a few times where I couldn’t make it to the bathroom. I fully peed in my pants and the bed. It was not okay. You don’t even notice when you’re in the hospital because they give you those massive pillow sized pads but then you come home and a pad wasn’t doing it.
I had to take the baby to the pediatrician within the first few days and I stopped on the way home to buy adult diapers. There are so many to choose from. I’m standing there in the adult diaper aisle comparing the brands and what they do. This one is ultra absorbent but this one lasts for nine hours and I’m thinking...what the fuck have I done with my life? There is just no shame at that point. I had to suck it up and wear a diaper. My husband and I laughed about it, but also, he fully saw his wife in an adult diaper waddling around the house and peeing in her pants. I’m really glad we’re married and he is stuck with me now because that was not an attractive sight."
