I think every so often about what kind of things can be done to make life in the AB/DL community a little better, especially for younger people just working their way into self acceptance.
I think something that could be really useful, although would take a lot of work, would be to search for contact information for psychologists throughout the United States, and ask them a few questions, as a survey.
Something like this:
1. Have you ever heard of Adult Babies or Diaper lovers?
2. If so, have you ever been approached by one as part of your profession?
3. What would your advice be toward an Adult Baby or Diaper Lover who is active in this lifestyle, appears to be holding up a job and maintaining a healthy amount of social interaction?
The reason I think a survey like this would be really useful for our community, is that for one, there still seems to be a lot of therapists that are not entirely aware of the details of our lifestyle. Raising awareness with them, may help them be better prepared, as well as encourage them to update their current understanding of what our lifestyle is really about.
Having a survey would not only expose how much or little of an awareness there is among therapists, and help improve it for people who really should know. But also, it will help improve the comfort that AB/DL's may experience when it comes down to opening up about their little side to their therapist.
As well, as a side effect, it may help in building up a good list of what therapists are suggestible by our community, and where they reside.
What do you all think?
