I've always wondered but never could ask. But hell why not here. At least here I'm not seeing your face so it's easier for me to ask... ...am I totally insane since I still have "imaginary friends?" I know how stupid I'm in my late 20's and still have "imaginary friends." They help when I'm alone. I know they're fake, I know they aren't here and I'm the only one that sees or hears them. I know they aren't real. But at the same time they are always around me. In my head (oh like that doesn't make me sound crazy). I can talk to them (not physically, it's all in my head), laugh with them, they are the few that I can just say whatever random thing I want and they don't judge me. They are the ones I can talk about my real intrests without being judged, without hearing "aren't you too old for that" or "what a weird thing to like." I've always had imaginary friends all my life, the names and people change as the years go by. But usually they pretty much stay the same. Yeah...stupid and embarrassing. See this is why I've never mentioned it to anyone. Not even my family. Cuz I know they would see me as a freak. I don't mind completely because it keeps me busy. Keeps away some of the lonliness (how can you be lonely when you got 2 other people running around talkin and laughing). But sometimes I just wanna be able to stop it before I make a mistake and let it slip. I've tried ignoring it, telling myself it's not real. But it doesn't help because they still stay there, and pop up when I least expect it. And please don't tell me "go find real friends." Hasn't worked so far in my life.
