One minute I’d be thinking, “This is awesome.” Five minutes later it would change to, “What have I done? This isn’t going to work.” And the beauty of it is this: it’s normal and ok. The emotional swings early on were part of me believing and getting through the next struggle, the next problem to solve, and the next path to create. All of the emotions were part of it. If we were going to make our dream real, we had to walk through the testing and doubting phase of the journey.
Do you really want to save money? Buy a more expensive, better made, higher quality product. That sounds counterintuitive, but you get what you pay for. All major manufacturers of incontinence supplies make a good, better, and best product line.
I talk with families every day who need to order diapers, underwear, and other supplies. I have noticed there are a number of catchall terms for incontinence products. The obvious ones, of course, are “diapers” and “pull-ups”. Someone might request a “diaper” they could depend on; while someone else might actually mean they want the brand-name, "Depend", which is made by Kimberly-Clark! Even more frequently, I have observed that some people use “Depends” as a generic term for any adult incontinence product, be it pull-on underwear or briefs (with tab fasteners).
