I don’t know where to start. It’s been almost three years since I began this blog and more than two years since I last posted to it. I loved doing this blog and I never intended to stop posting. At the end of the summer of 2018, when I was about to return to my university, I figured I would have to post less frequently, but I still wanted to post. I certainly still had diaper adventures.
Wow! I’ve had so much happen in my diaper life since I stopped posting. I want to share everything on this blog, but I’m not going to do so immediately. It would be way too much; plus, if I shared everything in my first post, I wouldn’t have anything with which to bait you wonderful readers into checking back in. Well, that’s not entirely right, since I have diapers in my future as well as in my past, but still. Back to what I said before: I can’t begin to unpack the last two to three years in one post!
I like this, actually. It reminds me of being at the very beginning of this blog again. At that time, I’d been wearing diapers for about two years without writing about it, so I just dropped various stories and information as the posts came to me.
I actually had a pretty organized approach to this blog during its original run. I wrote down post ideas in my phone’s notes app, then picked one whenever it came time to sit down and write. I also had myself pretty motivated to write. I remember starting out trying to write every couple days or something like that. It wasn’t long before I was writing multiple posts per day.
Right now, I feel closer to that “me” than I’ve felt in a long time. You see, I had some kind of mental crash around the time I stopped posting to this blog. I’m not sure if it was slightly before I stopped posting or slightly after, but I do think it happened around that time. It could have had to do with the fact that I decided to abstain from diapers for a couple weeks. (I explain this decision in my second to last post.)
Actually, my decision to hold off on getting more diapers might have been a symptom of my problem rather than a cause of it. Oddly enough, I’m not sure where my troubles started, but they took a long time to get over. I guess that means I’m saying I’m over them now. Well, I think I am, but I can’t be sure.
Let me back up a bit. When I say I had some sort of mental crash, it would be more accurate to say that I had some mental health problems pop up. The main problem was depression, but there was also quite a bit of anxiety. And that’s not all. But I don’t really want to go into any of it too deeply here. I might make it the subject of a future post if people are interested or if I feel it’s important enough of a story to share, but right now I want to bring the focus back to diapers.
Diapers helped me during the tough times that began around the time I stopped posting here, but unfortunately they did not come anywhere close to curing me of my ailments. Diapers are great, and diapers are a boon to my mental health, but they can only do so much.
And I’m so, so happy with what they do! That’s why I’m bringing this blog back. Or, part of the reason at least. I love diapers so much and I want to share my related experiences and insights.
I hereby welcome you to follow along with my newest chronicles! Until this very moment, I haven’t thought much about how often I should post, but writing this current post is energizing me and I think I should be able to post at least once a week.
Well, this post has been overly long, so I’ll end it here, but please do leave me a like on this post if you liked it and please leave a comment if you have any thoughts you want to share with me. I do read every comment sooner or later and I might reply too!
