Thread: did anyone else's (actual) parents think being an AB/DL was an "illness?"

  1. #1

    Default did anyone else's (actual) parents think being an AB/DL was an "illness?"

    I was sent to soooooo many therapists as a child to find out WHY my mom was finding diapers in my room. They all refused to talk about other issues with me. So therefore, my real issues were never taken care of until recently my mom kept pushing them to talk diapers with me and I had no real answer for them. I was about 10-11 and I just LIKED it.

    Has anyone else had the same experience?

    I think you were going to the wrong therapists if they never wanted to find out the real reasons.

    For me it was traumatic things that happened to me/ Abuse and molestation's.

    My parents didn't know about the
    AB/DL part. But to a lot of people they do think of it as a mental illness. The AB?DL part is not the illness but what may have triggered it is what needs to be found.

    I don't think my parents thought it was an illness, but i know they thought it was a phase, and I know they also thought it was really bad. So my first experiences with therapists and religious leaders was pretty bad. A little while ago though i met a therapist that was way good, and didn't see anything wrong with my little side.

    That is about the same thing I found out after 3 years. But I did find out that my baby side is a real side of me. It is another personalty that my brain created as away of protecting me.

    I personally think and time something that can be easily explained but nobody is willing to listen is why its classified as an illness. People want to think its treatable to make them (parent wise) selves feel better about the fact that they screwed up there kids lifes

    I have talked with a therapist and like many here was horrified at the situation that I grew up in. Had no problem with my diapers at all. Honestly the diapers were a non issue. Not with just one therapist, but two. The only comment was that as long as I was happy and didn't think it was interfering with my real life then it was a non issue. If it becomes to big and in the way of real life then I guess we could get into that part of diapers. But overall was happy that it was no big deal.

    My parents never knew, at least I don't think so anyway, but if they had found out they most certainly would have freaked out and gone way overboard. This is why I let it well hidden. A couple of times I was confronted by odd things mum found but fortunately they were obscure enough to be able to get around, and I know my dad made a ridiculing remark or two on the rare occasion that he spotted my teddy by the bed. But that's it.
    I wouldn't call my dad a redneck, but it freaked me out the way he would refer to gay people as sick, so I can only imagine what he would have thought of me. I really just think he'd have no desire to understand. I certainly won't be telling either of my parents anytime soon.

    Fortunately I have a loving partner who is slowly coming to terms with me but I know at times she has given me the cold shoulder thinking that it might help me to 'get over it' I'm pretty sure she realising that this is in every sense, part of who I am, and that I am quite happy about it.

    I really feel for kids who feel oppressed by people they should be able to rely on for support.

    upon discovering my diaper stash, my mom offered to get me therapy. i was already on pretty good terms with myself and didn't want to work toward pinning down a reason/cause for my fetish, because it could only implicate my parents in some way. so i figured i'd let sleeping dogs lie.

    however, my mom thinks i don't "do this diaper thing" anymore. my wife knows i do, though, and that's all right by us. :-)

    I've written about this before, but my senior year in college I came home from school for the weekend. It was Saturday and my parents had friends over for dinner. We were in the dining room and all of a sudden I started crying and couldn't stop. This was 1970, Vietnam, riots in the street, drugs and chaos. I was having a psychotic break. I excused myself and went upstairs to my bedroom.

    I was able to go back to school the next day, but my mom searched my bedroom, expecting to find drugs I suppose, but what she found was my makeshift diapers and gay porn. We had a long talk and she made an appointment for me with a psychiatrist at a residential mental facility. I also had tried to commit suicide on a couple of occasions.

    I can remember sitting in that waiting room for the first time, knowing I was going to have to talk about diapers and using them, as well as my attraction to other males. Eventually I talked my mom out of sending me, as I knew she couldn't afford the appointments.

    My parents thought it was an aspie obsession and my psychiatrist said the same.
