My last post was not explained well so I am reposting it. It is NOT sexual but I tend to age regress when I am feeling unsafe, and I like when my partner is more of a caregiver type of person. It may have to do with my ptsd, but I am wondering is there any real danger with this as a coping mechanism?

      There is a community for this actually 🤗 And yes it does get stigmatized but age regression is a valid form of therapy. Especially for PTSD. I can see if my friend can put you in touch with the community if you want?

      It can be dangerous around the wrong ppl, hi I also age regress due to trauma and strictly in a nonsexual way, but it seems like you are safe around your person so there's really not an issue that I could see, some ppl are mean but it will be ok, I've found agre to be very healing for my inner child

      There is not harm in this as long as you are feeling safe and cared for! It can be very healing for your inner child and help with PTSD

      I've discussed something similar with my therapist. personally I find myself at ease around swingsets but i worry that it comes off weird to say that I regress back to a childlike wonderment but it isn't shameful. if anything it's just your natural instinct to gravitate towards what comforts you and if it seems childlike that may just indicate a lack of comfort in your childhood that you're compensating for now.

      As long as you are in a sage environment, it's totally okay. I age regress too!

      I see no danger in this as long as it is helping you.

        @RainbowPearl I age regress due to PTSD and DID. Is there any chance I could get info for the community please?

        @RainbowPearl I forgot to mention my best friend is what is called a "little" she likes to paint color and draw and cuddle with stuffies and just forget about the world for a little while. Her partner makes sure stays safe during time. She was abused during childhood.
