I havn't been too active on here, a couple posts here and there. I'm pretty sure it's largely due to my diagnosis of social anxiety disorder, which I have been referred to the local anxiety clinic for. The assessment appointment is fast approaching and it involves sitting with a therapist and they decide what the next course of action is.
I'm not sure which came first, my anxiety issues or my ab/dl side, but they are certainly intertwined with each other. Padding up with my paci is a bit of a coping mechanism, amongst other things. :-) But I also feel like there's a need to hide a part of me from people, which results in anxiety... It's a cycle.
Now my problem is, since it's an anxiety clinic and that's what I'm there for, if and when do I bring up this particular part of myself? I have no intention of attempting to get rid of this side. It's been a part of me far too long to just drop, and quite frankly, I don't wanna :-p lol Any advice would help. Thanks for reading this post that got way too long, too fast. lol
