I know I've asked this in the past, but my thread is most likely dead.

I have two. Their names are Veronykah and Joey. I don't talk about them much because people often find it weird. I've had them since I was around maybe twelve? They were adopted after I named a bunch of trains that went by my house. XD When I lived in Maine, I had tons of invisible friends to make up for not having any real life friends. :sad:

Anyway, when I was around four or five, somewhere around there, I used to have a best friend named Elmo. He came up because I used to have an obsession with Elmo from Sesame Street. Well, I used to blame everything on him. My only memory of him is when I was looking out my window. We got into a fight, and he wanted to run away. So, I told him if he did that I would handcuff him to me. ...I was only a little kid then so sue me. LOL

So, have any of had or still have invisible friends? :O

Yeah I have one named Misty Yes from pokemon I thought she would understand how it feels to be looked over since she had other siblings that were favored. She turned into a mommy figure for me since I don't get much in ways of attention or love. I kind think I'm crazy for thinking she near by, but she help me feel wanted.

do you see your invisible friends as speaking to you from somewhere out-side.... or from somewhere within.....

I had a rough childhood - alcoholism and abuse, etc. So I made an imaginary friend to comfort me. He was tall and strong and powerful, and someone I liked to pretend could protect me. A lot of him was Superman, because Superman is my role model, but a lot of him was my own imagination... I could never see his face, because he was sooooo tall that little me couldn't turn my head up high enough. He got me through a lot of bad nights. :)

As I get older, I find that more and more of him is reflecting into me, and blending into my personality. It's become almost a well of positive energy and courage that I can draw upon when I need to. Like, a dual feeling of that I am never alone, but that I alone am enough. It's comforting, but in a different and more adult way than before.

I might be wrong, but i think this is the effect most imaginary friends have on children who have them. The imaginary friend is a part of you that presents itself to help you cope, until you get older and they meld back into your personality to be expressed by you as the person you wanted to be in the past but couldnt for whatever reason, so in a way that person who is your friend was always a part of you and the older you get, the more you exude that split manifestation of your personality. Very fascinating stuff.

Well, for me... it comes from not having friends. I have only very few of them in real life as well as online. It's hard for me to trust people, and I feel like having my imaginary friends helps me trust people more. Plus, having autism plays apart as well. With my odd social skills, it's hard to simply make friends too. I don't have any sort of trauma that's caused me to have them, just that I was never very social or made friends easily. It's hard to wean away from them when they are pretty much all you have to understand you.

I also wouldn't know. I think for me, it's a little bit of both. I kind of imagine them standing beside me talking to me sometimes. I know they aren't real though. I just have an attachment to them as sort of a comfort issue. It helps me understand myself a little better when things don't go as planned, or something like that.

I sort-of still have an "invisible friend" he is a "Centaur". I know he is completely imaginary and yet, having conversations with him sometimes alleviates the loneliness I feel as an Autistic older adult.

I've never had a imaginary friend but I was always curious of the idea when I was little.

That's almost word for word what my psychologist shared with me. I think you are very right. :) I like to believe that my need to care for and nurture others stems at least in a small way from that.

I had what seemed like a very real visitor when I was little, maybe 4 to 6. I called him the sock, because he would "sock" me (hit me) at night. I may have suffered from night terrors, and I would wake up screaming for my mom. This thing was external, and in my mind, very real.

As a child, I would hear voices inside my head. They were never distinct enough to understand, but if I wasn't thinking about them, they'd be there in the background. When I was aware of them, it would stop. This still occurs to a small extent. I do believe that during high school and college, I suffered from Borderline Personality disorder, not to an extreme, but to some slight degree. This all seems to fit together.

I recall not long ago, one of our members starting a thread asking if post traumatic stress syndrome could be a contributing factor to being attracted to diapers and regression. In my case, I see all these things going hand in hand. I was adopted at the age of two, and I grew up in several abusive, poor neighborhoods.

As another factor, as a child, I had a vivid imagination, and would fantasize all these scenarios, depending on what game I was playing. It doesn't surprise me that members who may regress well, might also have had imaginary friends, and/or played intently with toys or imaginary friends.

So,

I myself never had any invisible friends...I honestly think my brain is too logical for that...even art is an issue for me...but, I love to see art...exception is music though...

Now, does the be JC count?

No one has seen him, yet talk to him, and ask for help from him...with that said, maybe it's mass hysteria, pun intended!

As a kid I had a bunch of imaginary friends that were characters from tv shows I liked when I was younger and characters of shows and movies I liked at the time. I do not remember why I started it, but it didn't last long. I think it might have lasted a couple months.

In a way,adisco is an imaginary land filled {gig gig giggle gig}with all shapes and sizes of people
Ow, where did that color come from. Spooky, I think on accident I hit something. Yeah. I'm sorry I threw a tantrum the other day. I needed Henni, really bad and I could not get to any email. I just wanted to tell her!{I want to giggle but the crying too much } I was going to run away from home but I ran away from precious baby fairy land

I like it here But this is a pretend land but the nice is not pretend no, no, no! There is pretend nice but when you put your hand out so you can hold hands warmly with each other, warm gets cold and dark squeezing your hand tight and mean with darkness.

We came to here as pretends to work at blending to our reals like CrinklyEmilyLG says. and DogBoy, you are neat! You had bad but you give good. Does you wife( read profile) go to a pretends to?
Oops, Better say no more about the real world.
But Henni asks the best questions. And this little chaterbox does not give answer.

I had tons of pretends when little. First I had 4 brothers and 1 sister, we were quintuplets. 3 boys and 2 girls. Nanny made us go to the SniffleTower, that is in France, a lot. I'd sit in the SniffleTower, my face more wet then nappy. Elizabeth was going to run away. It hurt to have to pretend to be a boy (garçon) that my brain started to remap the way God made me but there was more then. I could no longer say to myself I was a girl and say it truly now I started to say more truly. I want to be a girl. And that would true for a long time with more remapping still to do.

The real world has some meanness for me right now. No pretends allowed. I won't run away Henni but maybe too busy to be here

I don't remember it, but my mother says that when I was small, I said she had to hold the door open long enough for my friends to come in. Nobody knows how many there were.

Over the years I've had many. I had a skeleton "follow me" when I was 14, an evil duck lol until I was about 18 or something then for a while nothing because my parents where getting worried.

For the past 2 years I've got a troll named Sidney that lives under my bed and (this always makes me laugh) a vegetarian zombie named Moz (very creative lmao) who lives by the shed at the bottom of the garden lol.

I had invisible friends for years, but they abruptly stopped hanging out with me after I went on my meds... they said the meds made me a lot less fun to be around.

I don't have invisible friends per-say but I sort of count my stuffed animals as friends of mine that 'live in my head' sort of thing the way an invisible one would.

I don't have them per se. However I do talk to my stuffed animals and imagine them talking back to me, to the point I actually hear them.
