my name is jenn and i'm 28 years old. What i want to know is what if you are an adult and you still have imaginary friends but you've had them since you were a child. These imaginary friends of mine have grown up with me and been with me ever since i was a little kid. I admitt i do have a mental illness and i dont know if the imaginary friends could be related. These imaginary friends have aged over the years growing up aling side me with complete personalities, backgrounds, birthdays, birth places, marriages, children. There's a whole geneology to them. They aren't bad people they dont tell me to do bad things. They are a family. they listen to me and dont yell at me. they are just there for me. they've given me the emotional comfort that i fell like i've never gotten. Im a very self concious person. I am married and my husband does know about them. I do talk to my "friends" and my husband is ok with it. He knows they are big part of my life. The "friends are always with me no matter where i am wether it be in the bedroom, in the store, the bathroom (but they dont think i'm naked or anything) they are just every where following me. it doesn't bother me. i only talk to them when i am alone i know better to talk to them when i'm out in public. Its a group of about 40 but only two or three aprear at a time and change from time to time. I know they aren't real but they feel real. Ive told my doctors about it and they dont seem impressed by it. Can any one give me advice or an opinion on this matter. Anything would be most appreciated. Thank you for listening.

You sound like you have things under control , just avoid slipping up in public with them. However , going forward , I'd refrain from placing information such as this online. Doing so is the antithesis of anonymity. Good luck to you and your buddies.

Life's strange, I don't see why this is bad. In fact, the weirdness is kind of interesting. You have an intact imagination. Lots of people lose this fascinating gift. Turn it into a series book deal or something, yeah!

I really thought I was weird, but I guess not. Its not bad but I would be careful in public cause I don't think most adults do have imaginary. Sounds like one those TLC shows.

New Age types would call them spirit guides or guardian angels.
