What I meant by this is a big step is that, this is the first time I've ever really spoken about this part of me to anybody.
Well, to start with, I don't really know what I consider myself. I like the feel of nappies and enjoy being babied - I love to be held, and emotionally, I am immature. That isn't a deliberate thing - I'm autistic. I don't know if being autistic has contributed to this want, or the neglect when I was younger.
I know sometimes this can have a sexual side but that's not the case with me at all. It's entirely emotional and needing to feel safe.
I've had real trouble coming to terms with this side of me. My family are a conservative bunch and I feel very isolated from them. I've only shared this secret with one person, which is my school nurse. She has been utterly amazing and so accepting.
A little about me; I go to a music school in Manchester, England. I'm 18, but intellectually like a 40 year old, and emotionally like a 5 year old. A bit of a mixed bag, really.
Well, that's taken a whole lot of courage. How is everybody?
