It started when I was maybe 11. I had just moved away from my best friend to a new school and everything in my life was going bad. No one was nice to me, I was lonely and lived in a small apartment with my parents and grandparents. I was also not adapting well with the move, so I just started day dreaming about visiting my friend and I did that every night. I did it to escape my reality. It kept me sane but it also made me sad torturing myself with scenarios that I can think of but never live. And then I started making up fake friends and a boyfriend in my head as I got older and would think about them anytime I was sad. I don't do it as often as I used to but I still find myself thinking about them when I'm really upset because it's comforting pretending like someone is there for me. It hasn't affected my life in a negative way as far as I know so I don't see any reason to stop, and I don't do it in public.
