Here's me starting a thread again. What would you call this lifestyle choice if you were introducing yourself to an examining medical professional for the first time (one who wanted or needed to know everything about you). It's just I've said Infantilism to three medical professionals and it's just bounced off/needed explaining...a fourth however did immediately say yes I've heard of that and as a short side-along explained that her friend - on adopting a twelve year old girl - had taken a mother role for the twelve year old girl (all the stress of her life before the separation and the actual separation had pushed her - the girl - into infantilism), a very consenting role: clothless bathing, baby-food feeding and all three (I'm talking main) types of nappy changing (ask if you're unsure - unlikely as we ADISC!). The girls infantilism only lasted about a year and a half if you're interested and she apparently dropped it completely even going as far as to act like it hadn't actually happened (gosh I've had experiences a little like that not relating to me but...YKW that's a long story for another time) any way that girl got real good treatment ...ah - some out there are so lucky!
Anyhoo that off-track ended up being longer than it shood hav been. Should I just say I like wearing nappies (in future)? It's difficult as that's a difficult thing (NTM embarrassing/cheek-reddening) to say to any medical professional...on top of that I think that medical professionals should know, defo one's that cover a lot of subjects. Infantilism's always to me seemed such a safe bet (people getting it wise) but there are other descriptions (if you don't want to get to the point simply - i like to wear nappies...which is of course what this thread is all about!). One of the professionals who didn't get Infantilism did understand 'extreme regression' so that's a possible and also I think autonepiophilia has recently come along as a description but it wouldn't surprise me if it was only doing the rounds in America at present...I've heard it over here in the UK...not once! So what would you do if you were telling a medical professional? What would you say? (and of course there's the other group...) what did you say/tell to your questioning medical professional? I am a massive nappied ear waiting 2 hear from you (rather weird image yes but I could think of nothing else!)! bringmesunshine
