Default Kind of a weird thing I like to do

But I want to wear kids underwear with like dinosaurs, superheroes, and space themes on them. Just because I like the idea of feeling like a little kid and I find them calming. Is this kind of strange? I mean I know itís unusual but is there anything wrong with it? I know some dudes like to wear womenís underwear just because itís a thing for them. I do other things but I canít do them outside the house. These I can wear outside the house. I do like to wear Goodnites too sometimes and I can wear those out of the house although Iím self conscious someone will notice.

I had a trans cleaning lady at our old house who wore a maids outfit. Called herself maid and then her name after that instead of just a cleaning lady. That was a bit creepy to be honest. If sheís into that stuff cool but maybe donít do it when your working in other peoples houses. My mom said it was just her thing and didnít seem bothered by it.

Default Re: Kind of a weird thing I like to do

honestly, if I had some kids clothes in the house, I probably would, too- and for the reasons you described. it makes you feel like a kid again

and honestly I would love to feel like a kid again. I posted in another thread yesterday, that I didn't give up my pasifier until I was 7 (but even that was a real struggle)
I'm not entirely sure I'd have one now (triggers and such), but other stuff sure

what else do you do?. just curious

I drink out of a bottle. Itís an adult size one but it has monsters on it. I do use a pacifier. I have 3 actually. They are adult size ones that I found on Amazon. Sometimes I wear diapers when Iím super stressed and I just need to relax and rewind. I have a black adult size onesie I wear over them. I only use these things at night although if Iím home alone I may drink out of the bottle during the day.

Sometimes at night when I am super stressed I just need to get into my space with these things and rewind.

One of my therapists knew and she was completely accepting. My mom doesnít know anything at least sheís not saying anything if she does know. I keep everything hidden in the bottom 2 drawers of my dresser that is in my walk in closet. I have hardwood floors so she doesnít need to vacuum so she doesnít really need to be in there at all. I did mention having some private things that I am discussing in therapy and Iíd like her to respect my privacy. And she said ďyeah sure.Ē So there hasnít been an issue. I have almost gotten caught a number of times though.

I honestly think Iím becoming dependent on my bottle. Iíve been drinking out of it every night since Iíve been home and then I want to use it during the day but I canít because people are around. Last night I slept with it. It had water in it and I drank half of it and then I put it next to me and I finished it this morning. Itís a sensory relief item. It helps a lot with my anxiety.

Smile Re: Kind of a weird thing I like to do

I don't think there's anything strange, or weird, about wearing kids underwear. Quite a few years ago, now, I used to have silk boxer shorts some of which had cartoon characters on them. I loved them. As I recall, I bought most if not all of them at Target. I don't think Target sells anything like that anymore. (I don't get there much though.) If I could have adult-sized bottles & pacifiers I probably would. As it is I have to content myself with my teddy bear.

I suppose that's a plus to me living alone. no one can see that I'm using the bottle.

if I didn't have it, I honestly wouldn't have many alternatives either

I have a mug with santa claus on it, one with some race cars, and one with jane austen on it

I don't buy many because I just like the bottle.

actually, I just had to buy a new bottle. old one had a leak in it..

Default Re: Kind of a weird thing I like to do

I told my therapist today. I started off by saying ďthis is weird but you know how people with autism have oral fixations? Well I like to chew and suck on thingsĒ then I mentioned that I drink out of a bottle and she said ďlike a baby bottle?Ē And I said ďyeah.Ē Then I said that I also use a pacifier and that these things really help. She was accepting. Well at least I think she was. She didnít show any judgement. She asked if I felt ok with myself for using them. And I said yeah but I feel like Iím starting to get dependent on them. She asked if I used them every night. And I said I donít use the pacifier every night but I use the bottle every night. She asked what I drank out of it and I said water but that one time I tried milk and it didnít really work out. She asked where I got the pacifier from because sheís heard of adult size ones but didnít know where you get them from. I told her I got them from Amazon and she said ďoh. You can get everything from Amazon.Ē I mentioned not wanting my mom to know. She asked why and I said ďitís just a personal thingĒ I said I had to clean it out every morning in the bathroom with hand soap and then dry it with paper towels all while my mom was in the shower and I had about 10 minutes to do it. She said thatís a lot of work. Not sure what she meant by that. Itís very easy to clean mine.

She mentioned to just be aware of my teeth and I said that yeah that was a concern of mine but I use really good toothpaste and mouth wash.

I didnít tell her about any of the stuff I wear. Iím not sure how sheíd respond to that. Although she seems to be aware of the community. At least thatís what I got from our conversation. But the non sensory stuff is very personal and my old old therapist knew but it was because I really trusted her and it still took about a year to tell her and I had to tell her in email.

I may tell her I wear goodnites since those are sensory related too.

But last night I slept with my pacifier for the first time in awhile and except for 45 minutes at midnight I slept a long time with it and it helped me sleep. I woke up later then I normally do because of it.

I can see why they have adult size pacifiers. I ordered some ones for 18-36 month olds and they are so small. I can almost fit the whole thing in my mouth. I for sure would not sleep with a baby one. Although itís good for during the day. I also got 3 new sippy cup like bottles. One has Mickey Mouse on it, one has Cookie Monster, and the other is blue with musical instruments. I havenít tried them out yet but Iím about to.
