Do you ever feel a sinking sense of loneliness as an AB? A sense of wanting to be cared for, needing that parental figure, a craving to be little, and finding yourself alone and bogged down with adult responsibilities?
I apologize, I am venting, and wanted to know if anyone has ever felt the same, or similar.
You want to suck your thumb, but you feel guilty for not taking on responsibilities. You're afraid to slip into a little headspace because there is no one there to guide or help you. You feel guilty for wanting this at all, and when you realize it's something you need, deeply, you feel even worse. You feel ashamed.
