    My Coping Mechanism

    This all started when I turned eleven years old.  I was being molested by my oldest brother.  He started molesting me when i was five years old, but at that age, I had no idea that it was wrong for him to do that.  So I let him.  When i turned eleven, however, I figured out...

    When I was younger, I remember telling my

    parents about a man, who would stand in the doorway to the kitchen with a huge sadistic grin on his face. The thing that freaks me out is that he looks similar to the cartoon joker in real life form. This was during the time, I had an imaginary friend named Max. O.o Strange isn...

    I'm Still Not Sane

    When I was small and was accused of talking to myself, I'd deny it and say I was talking to my baby doll. I had Susie and one other. Susie and I were the closest. I found out some time later that I had a cousin named Susie. That was probably where that came from. I still talk to...

    I moved from Texas to Idaho when I was four, and left my best friend behind. Her name was Brittany. I missed her so much, she became my imaginary friend for several years. She was my height always, had light blonde curly hair that was down to her waist and always in some kind of...

    As a kid, I didn't have any friends. So, I use to make up my own. I would sit in my room and fantasize I was anywhere else, but where I really was! And I had many friends to talk to, in this imaginary world. :-) We would do all of the stuff I saw in movies... we would talk on...

    When I was younger between the ages of 2-12 I

    had this imaginary friend. She is called Amy. At first she was a friend to play with someone to calm me down etc. Then things changed. She used to force me to stay awake at night and make me hide from my mom. Anyway, a few years later we were moving house and we still had boxes...

    I used to have a twin sister named Katie,

    who lived in the mirror. Sometimes we would switch places, and I would be able to walk in her twisted world. Katie was real to me, and I loved her, but she would never appear to anyone else. Katie and I were the best of friends, and it seemed like we would always have each...

    Not In A "redrum, Redrum," Sort Of Way...

    I used to talk to my hand. I was shy and lived kind of in the country where there weren't many kids anyway, and I was allergic to cats and dogs. I would make my hand into a little animal shape and pretend it was my little pet that I would talk to. Now I've got a guy in my head...

    That was his name. He was the best friend I ever had and I miss him still. He was a fox. I don't mean he was a handsome human, he was an actual fox, with an auburn coat and the most beautiful blue eyes. He'd play tricks on me - his favourite was standing on my hair when I was...
