I am a pretty childish girl sometimes. I think mentally, I function at the level of an older child to a younger child. It depends on how you look at it, really. It's mostly because of disability reasons.
I carry around anime plushies. My three favorite ones are Ciel, Sebastian and Axel. I also have a really soft blue and black tiger stripe scarf I call scarfy that I wear around my neck. I sleep with these things too.
I've always been into cartoons. There are times I still watch little bear and Chuggington too. The only thing that is missing from this is diapers and a pacifier... which my mom would NEVER let happen even if I did try to explain to her.
My reasons for acting more childish, as I said, are disability-related but also due to comfort and emotional issues. I've had a lot of head injuries as a child too so its rattled my brain and made me forget childhood memories and such.
I did get tested for tramautic brain injury because of all the head injuries but my records said that the head injuries didn't create any impact that affected my development... then again, I was still a child at the time and I'm STILL a child now... I don't even feel like I am 23 years old. I feel like my age range is at least under twelve because it varies.
Most people have never really seen how bad my childish side really is. They don't see it as being an issue because once they know I have autism then they usually shrug it off as being part of that. I have lots of anxiety issues that I have the worst trouble dealing with.
Anyway, enough about me... what about you? Are you a child inside of an adult body like me?
