My Mom Suggested A Psychiatrist

I am 21 years old, when I was about 18 years old my family dog decided to rip up my baby blanket and I cried for a few hours because I've had it since I was born. My mom thought it was funny and was glad. Since the day it happened I started looking on Ebay.com for hopefully someone selling the same blanket, I was determined to get it back. Finally now that I am 21 i found it online for 50 bucks. At first I didn't want to sleep with it like old times because it was brand new and wasn't "my" blanket. But a traumatic event happened where I broke down and slept with it, now again I sleep with it every night. My mom thinks I'm in need of a psychiatrist to the extreme. I sometimes feel like there is something wrong with me and why I can't just let go of the blanket but it was the only thing in my childhood to comfort me through everything that happened when I was younger that I couldn't talk to my mom about.

Your mom is mean and what kind of dog did you have?

lol. im only 14 and my mom is trying to throw it away without me looking. so i always hide it somewhere very secretive when i go to school >_>.

I'm 20 and I still sleep with mine. I'm really not ashamed of it and I've fought with my dad every time he's said I need to let it go. I don't think you need help, but then again I've named my blanket... lol

your welcome and just because your i belive 21 dosent mean you have to leave behind things that most young children people do that because they dont want to be thaought differently of i had somthing like your blanket but it got destroyed by someone and i still wish i had it and just cause your mom thinks you need a phychatrist she is completly wrong and i dont know how to say this a phychatrist is used for people with problems not for someone has something that calms you down.

LOL i have to say I think that is the best comment i could have expected , thank you :)

well your mom needs help that blanket to you is like a place were you feel safe and calm it makes you feel happy i wish i had something like that but no offense to your mom she needs to shut the hell up
