Re: talking to people that aren't there

When I was very young, maybe around from like 3 or 4 until I was 8 or 9, I had this persistant fanstasy that I was from Mars and that my parents were not my real parents. They were selected to raise me. Everyone in the world knew that I wasn't really human and all the people around me were actors pretending to think I was normal. This was done so that they (whoever "they" were) could study me as I grew up and learn about Martians. I can't really say how much I really "believed" it. I mean, deep down I knew it wasn't true, but I don't think you can have a fanatasy like that for years w/o it affecting you somewhat.

But I just grew out of it eventually. I didn't make any special effort to do so. How old are you, may I ask? Obviously you're older than I was, but if you are a teenager, feelings of alienation and feeling like you are a different kind of being from everyone around you are not at all uncommon.

You definitely aren't crazy. If you really believed these things to be true, that would be one thing, but if you really believed them to be true, you wouldn't think that you were crazy for believing them, would you?

However, I think that you could benefit from some counseling. Couldn't you tell your parents that you would like to talk to a psychlogist without them exactly why? If they insist on knowing why, tell them you are feeling very depressed or that you are having panic attacks or something like that. Once you talk to a psychologist, what you say is just between you and them.

Anyway, good luck to you.

Re: talking to people that aren't there

Hi kristelr,
Let me start off with saying I do not think you are crazy. The things that you mentioned are ways that our minds cope and adapt to certain events or issues in our lives. I do understand kristel riddle and her importance to you. It is good to have someone that we can depend upon.
Keep talking to your parents. Do not stop trying to tell them. Try to talk to them about how you deal with being mean to people when you get mad also. Please look on this site and you will find more on that. When you feel really lonely be sure to come back here. You will find lots of poeple that will listen and that do care.

thank's for the info, I'm to scared to go talk to someone in person about things like this. I don't like feeling rejected. I'll try to see if it works out. by the way i'm 14

Well that is good. You need to keep trying them. Sometimes parents have to learn how to listen. Sometime we have to help them learn to do that.
