New Dad diagnosed with PTSD after horrific nighttime incident with dirty nappy


Man changing nappy

A new Dad has been diagnosed with PTSD after a gruesome incident with a full nappy in the dead of night.

Simon Williams, 33, took his turn changing his newborn son’s nappy per his agreement with his wife, seemingly unaware of the horrors that lay before him.

“I’ve been told that talking about it will help, but I just…can’t… seem to get the words out,” Williams told us, before looking off into the distance.

“It all happened so quickly, one minute I was happily carrying my son into the nursery, the next it was… just everywhere.

“There was no hiding, it was coming from all directions, and I was overwhelmed. You train for this, obviously, but no NCT class can prepare you for the full horror when it’s happening there right in front of you, and you’re in the middle of it.

“I mean literally still happening. You pray it’s over – but it’s not. It’s still coming out in a seemingly endless violent stream. Uness you’ve seen it firsthand, you can’t imagine the horrors created by something so innocent looking.”

He went on to explain that the reality had been far different from his dream of parenthood.

He revealed, “Look, I get it, they sell you on parenthood so it looks like a wonderful adventure that will take you to places you never thought you’d see – but they never focus on the grisly reality of life on the front line.

“No-one would sign up for this if they knew they would have to go through the things that I’ve had to go through.”

Simon’s wife told us, “Look, diagnosis or not, I do 90% of the nappies and deal with all the puke, so he needs to man the fuck up.”
