So I'm new to the ab/dl scene, having just embraced my little side. I'm currently working with a psychologist. Started out as a way to figure out how to love myself more (I've always been overweight and self-conscious), then as demons appeared I became quite depressed, and now it's working on that. Good thing is now I'm pretty sure why I'm an ab/dl.
But I digress. I don't want to tell her about my ab side, although she's cool, she's also human. But my question is, do you think not telling her about it is harmful to my recovery from depression? Like, hiding something that at the moment is pretty big in my life. But I haven't come out to anyone, and I'm TERRIFIED that even though she has to remain professional, she'll judge me and stuff. But yet, being depressed is horrible, and I want to try and overcome it.
I guess I want to know your experiences with your ab/dl side and mental health professionals.
