I've been going through a lot of personal stress wanting to tell someone for quite a few good reasons. I still will be telling my parents and I can't be sure on how they will react, but I just know that I need to, I know that there are a lot of you out there who are against that idea, but I'll just keep it short and say it is necessary for me and i'm independent enough for possible repercussions.
Anyway, I was thinking maybe a really good friend of mine would be understanding, we have been through a lot together, and he is going into psychology, so i figured that he would be understanding at least (so happens that in his second year they have actually briefly mentioned Infantilism in his classes). Anyhow, we were having a talk on the phone like we do every once in a while, and were talking about some struggles that we have both worked on in the past, and I got the chance to say that there were some things that I was still dealing with that were rather unique. Finally I worked my way from saying that it wasn't really inherently wrong, it was just something weird. A little bit after he had said that i could tell him if i felt like it, and feeling like he would be fairly understanding, i sent him a link through email to the "what is true infantilism page" after he read a little into it he started to say "ok, well i've actually heard of this a little before."
I talked with him about it and told him the struggles that it had been going through binges and purges, and how that i've been able to find safety in a middle ground, he was extremely understanding and pretty supportive. Even pointed out that he has more stuffed animals than I do, and that onsie's are really nice (but he doesn't like the footed ones), and that drinking from a baby bottle is actually kind of nice. I feel so relieved to have told somebody outside of another Ab/dl, and feel like he doesn't look differently at me in any way.
