I'm in my 20s, and have always been an *b/dl. Being shy both in the real world and on the internet, I was reluctant to actually register to this forum, but tonight I decided it was time. Things have been rough; I haven't been taking care of myself, and I've done a pretty sound job of becoming quite isolated (not all bad--advantageous to live alone). It occurred to me that in order to begin to improve, I need to finally embrace this side of myself and proceed from there. If I'm not at peace with this part of myself, I can't reasonably expect to find an SO who would be.
I've done a lot of forum lurking in our corners of the internet, and I really admire the folks who integrate this trait into their daily lives. They demonstrate that it's ok to be an ab/dl within appropriate contexts, and that having a remarkable trait such as this does not mean a person doesn't deserve to feel good, or to feel accepted. From my previous lurking I knew ADISC to be a friendly, respectable, clean forum, and I look forward to learning from and conversing with everyone. Thanks in advance.
Diaperspace looks interesting too, but a bit much for me yet. Also, just placed my first online order; stressful, but exciting.
Sorry about the name...might change it later, but I like the phrase and had to pick something.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
