    Yes. I lead up to it and told her about the depression anxiety I was having with a major binge cycle and then told her that the next time I wanted to talk to her about ABDL at the next visit. She asked and we had a quick discussion. The next time we met we went over everything and that is when see looked at it as a PTSD issue and we started using it is a copying mechanism.

    Now she has changed from one on one to group therapy counseling and in two weeks I have to talk to a new therapist but she will have all of my records before I go to see her.

    Yes. I told my therapist about it and he was fine with it. Given my upbringing and... nature, he said it was perfectly understandable as a coping mechanism, but it wasn't something I could be "cured" of (which was fine by me -- I wouldn't want or expect that anyway).

    I've noticed that when my depression/anxiety gets worse I tend to want to regress more, so I agree that (in my case, at least) it can be a coping mechanism. And... if it doesn't harm anyone and helps me to cope, why not indulge every now and then...?!

    If there's one person you should be able to tell (without worrying that it might be a bad decision), it's a therapist. There are a few rogues about, but look them up online and make sure they have legit qualifications. You don't need to tell them everything on your first visit! Just have a general chat about other stuff and, if you get along and trust them, gradually build up to giving them the "full picture".

    I don't regret telling my therapist anything (and I've been seeing him several times a week for over 2 years, so... I've told him an awful lot!). Good luck :-)

    I told my Headshrinker about my ABDL too. Always a good idea.

    I was discovered (my DL part) by my then significant-other at the time, and was already seeing a therapist... I felt compelled to tell my therapist as it was stressing me out... I don't regret that I did tell one bit...

    I wanted to quote tiny on

    "...There are a few rogues about"...
    because it seems to take only one 'bad apple' to spoil the notion all together for so many that could really benefit from proper competent counseling...

    Having said that... once you've obtained a respectable therapist... there's probably no reason to not open up about anything at all... though, particularly in the interest in time... where it's something that causes you a fair bit of difficulty... otherwise, if you're all squared up and right fine with it... then probably no reason to bring it up... yet nothing to bar you from it either...

    I think that you can too...

    NO. I was about three years with GF, which is shrink and... better not say anything more. And to rest of shrinks' presentations: Mostly negative reactions.

    when i went, i did most of the explaining, and told himsimply; its my way to escape the problems of everyday life, so regressing is akin to someone drinking away their problems or something like that. he didnt really cover that much since we focused on stuff like confidence and feeling inferior but it wasnt very positive, just very awkward, especially the long drives home just dad driving and me listening to his sermons/speeches/lectures XP dumb...

    My therapist was very helpful in allowing me to come to terms with my ABDL stuff.

    When I was in college, my psychiatrist thought I would outgrow it. He really didn't have a clue. My mom made me see him when she discovered by diapers and gay porn. He was more concerned about my homosexuality because in the late 60s, it was illegal. You could be put in jail or a mental institution, which was where I saw my shrink. I knew I was standing on shaky ground, as the funk song goes. I got out of there as soon as I could, talking my mom out of sending me. Fortunately, we've come a long way, baby.

    I've never really been set with a single physch long enough for me to trust them... I'd love to tell someone in person but major trust issues get in the way, if you can tell someone I'd look at it as a positive experience, at least it'll be of your chest.
