Illness, HSP & Littleness?

I'm just wondering if any of you deal with long term chronic illnesses, physical, psychological or both? And whether this has impacted your choices with getting involved with ddlg, due to the extra need for nurturing.

 

Or perhaps you are just naturally sensitive a 'highly sensitive person' which means you need a little extra understanding/patience from your partner? Heres a test to see if you are a HSP http://hsperson.com

 

From what I'm gathering I can't imagine a non-sensitive person being interested in dd/lg, but I may be wrong. Please do correct me if I am :)

Ummmm I'm an empath definitely in the HSP spectrum :D but I don't think that had as much effect on my choice as a little as the fact that that's my natural tendency. I've always been submissive and always acted younger than my age. I do look forward to other answers!

I suffer from both psychical and psychological chronic illnesses. I think both, but especially the psychological bit, have made me an extremely needy person in many ways. However, I don't believe they've had anything to do with me being a little. If anything, my issues have led me to have trust issues with others. Finding a daddy is all the harder because of it. I have been diagnosed with severe PTSD, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Agoraphobia, Manic Depression, and a mild to medium case of Schizophrenia (No, I don't have multiple personalities which is what MANY think Schizophrenia is). So I'm a big jumbled mess. Much of this is hereditary and I guess I just hit the jackpot. Blah!

 

However, being in little space DOES help me cope with my issues. If I start to feel overwhelmed by everything I just easily become my youngest self and find comfort the best I can in little things (like coloring, cartoons, etc...).

Hello there, I deal with long term chronic illnesses, physical and psychological (BPD, asma, allergies of all kind, ansxiety, depression and a kind of bulimia) and i think it might have influenced me into being a little, without even knowing what a little was. Because i have a lot of illnesses i always needed more care and attention, but i didn't had it. As i grew up I tried to fit in very hard and be a strong independent woman, because every one tells you "you can't trust or rely on nobody, you have to take care of yourself!" and i tried, and i tried...and i was just surving at some point, until i met my Daddy. Then everything changed because finally I could trust someone completely, a person whom cared for me, worried about me, got mad with me for not taking care of myself, everything a Daddy does, and more important of all, loved me no matter what. It doens't matter if i am childish, little, don't know about life and stuff, have a lot of issues, if i am insecure about everything, jealous, kinda crazy and blablabla, he loves me the most. So yeah, it may have had some impact on finding out i am a little xD

For me it may be that it was there all along but having health stuff has brought it out, more because I've had a lot of time to get to know myself, what I want etc.

 

I remember when I was younger watching The Secretary, and the parts where he was caring/nurturing were really appealing to me (a lot of it wasnt though haha) and that was when I didn't have any health issues at all. Though i've always been very sensitive.

 

Thinking about it its probably not relating to health at all because a lot of people have health issues but wouldnt be remotely interested in ddlg. Not have an inner child etc!!

 

anyway, thanks for the responses :)

I think that there can be so many wonderful positive aspects of this type of relationship and that it can also be very beneficial for people who need extra care.

 

But also I am very fortunate to not have any prior history of abuse, trauma, or illness. I just like being pampered. So it definitely is possible for those who are “non-sensitive” people to be interested.

I have HSP, it is kind of complicated illness for me because I have it from my childhood and it periodically appears. Doctors told me they face this for the first time because usually such illnesses are cured until 6 years maximum. Usually when it appears I start to have joint pain and swelling (arthritis), belly pain, kidney disease. I have this once in a year or two, I got pretty used to this but it became really annoying, so I want to do something to quit with this problem. At least I am thankful to our local hospital, they do everything very fast due to new practice management software which manages all the pacients through a kind of AI, so we don't need to wait too much until receiving the recipes.

yep. Im autistic, plus have a neurological disorder comorbid with that and on top of that i have had arthritis in my spine since forever, so physically im not as nimble as I wish i were (cartwheels?) :unsure: this is certainly part of why i can get depressed sometimes as it has effected my days as a kid. plus there are few people out there that understand autism....too much media and autism speaks DOESNT help >:)

I have a whole slew of struggles but i never let it get in my way (as best as possible anyway) and I definitely think that this sort of lifestyle is really accommodating for a wide variety of people. Although I will say ive definitely had my bumps in the road in terms of being involved with ddlg and just struggling in general especially emotionally.

I am highly sensitive to certain things as well as I have Arthritis to the point I have trouble walking, as well as depression and anxiety so with all those things it makes finding a Daddy/Boyfriend hard for me.
