My question is: How did your parents take it when you told them of your AD/DLism? To give you an idea, my mom took it pretty hard. Being a devout christian, she told me what I was doing was evil. She then fought my dad for custody so she could take me to a shrink. She won, and she did, and although the shrink couldn't "help" me, I told her he did so she would leave me be and let me come back to my dad's. This process took about seven months and was among the darker times in my life.
