      Default Am I too old for imaginary friends?

      Hey, I'm thirteen and I still talk to my imaginary friends. I make up new ones all the time I talk to them I have sleepovers with them. The have full names, personalities, and flaws. Like, Ron can sing really well, and Bea loves animals. Am I too old for them?

      According to wikipedia:
      Imaginary friends are made often in childhood, sometimes in adolescence, and rarely in adulthood. They often function as tutelaries when played with by a child. They reveal, according to several theories of psychology, a child's anxieties, fears, goals and perceptions of the world through that child's conversations. They are, according to some children, physically indistinguishable from real people, while others say they see their imaginary friends only in their heads. There's even a third category of imaginary friend recognition: when the child doesn't see the imaginary friend at all, but can only feel his/her presence.
      Some child development professionals still believe that the presence of imaginary friends past early childhood signals a serious psychiatric disorder.[7][8] Others disagree
      OK so the jury is out on this.
      But imo, if you can't tell the difference between fantasy and realty, then there's a problem.

      If you know that they are imaginary then at least you're not crazy.

      Apart from that the question is whether they serve any useful purpose.
      Who knows; maybe your imaginary friends give you good advice.
      On Sept 11th 2001 in the afternoon, World Trade Center Tower 7 was brought down by CONTROLLED DEMOLITION. Who did it? When did they place the charges?
      It's not the TRUTH that causes wars, it's the LIES.

      If you worry about it too much, head to a "place of worship on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, depending on which franchise you are going to. There will be quite a few of all age groups there, pleased to share about their imaginary friends.

      Yes, at 13 that does not seem normal. You should talk to your family dr.
