I've thought about making this thread a few times, and well.....
So I'm an Adult Baby/Little who experiences what I believe is an authentic kind of regression (details for another thread) The thing is, while I feel I have accepted myself this way, and have embraced my little self really well, there is something which still makes me feel quite stupid and ashamed.
Whenever I come across adults who have intellectual disabilities causing them to have the mental age of a small child, I feel really confronted by my own situation ... I feel somehow like a rediculous fraud, embarrassed and ashamed that I would willingly allow myself to behave that way, and yet....in reality I know that when I do, I am responding to a very real personal need, something I have learnt I cannot ignore.
Why does this make me feel so ashamed of myself.? Have others experienced this awkward sensation.
