(Just a quick disclaimer, I'm not sure if this belongs here or in off topic, so moderators, feel free to move it if you feel the need.)
So this is something that I've thought about for a few years now, based on my own experience. Basically, I've struggled with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and depression throughout my life, the both of them going hand and hand. It's been especially bad the last couple years, a huge part of it being a year and a half ago when a friend took me to the hospital because I confessed to them that I was considering suicide.
Now here's where my DL side comes into play. Whenever things got hairy way back when, going in my room and wearing diapers often helped with coping, as many have said here before. Now it wasn't my only coping mechanism, as I had a lot of supportive friends and family. However, as it got more and more closer to the breaking point, I withdrew from both my DL side and interacting with others, and telling them how I actually felt.
Fast forward to the present. I've moved out on my own, 1500 miles away to college from home. Now obviously I've been able to wear diapers WAY more, and it's been very helpful with dealing with the anxiety that's come from living on my own, as well as making my plans for the near future.
What I wanna ask you guys (especially those who've struggled with this sort of thing), have diapers been a good way to cope? Do you think there's any sort of draw back to it? What do you think?
