Where wild minds come to rest
Hello, fellow MDers!
I'm going to start by introducing myself for those of you who are knew to this site. My name is Jennifer, I'm currently 15 years old, and I joined this site during the November of 2011 after finding out I had MD.
What I want to post about is my "creation" of fake Facebook profiles. I just took the time out of the day to make two fake profiles on Facebook. They're profiles for my main characters, Elizabeth and Max. I put where they work, the fantasy worlds they live in, and their relationship status, all based on my daydreams. I remember reading somewhere in someone's comment on a blog that they have also done this, but I'm unable to remember where I read that, or who it was posted by. My question for you is 'Is this normal?' Well, I guess I shouldn't exactly use the word normal. But 'normal' meaning common or acceptable, even, for those of us with MD. Has anyone else also done this?
I'm going to go out on a limb here and tell you guys that I'm ashamed to reveal this. I honestly get so self-conscious with my MD sometimes, because I just feel like a complete freak. Like, who does that?! Makes fake Facebook accounts for fake "people." I don't even understand why I did it, and looking back on it, I feel really dumb about it. I know it sounds really dumb, but I guess I did it because I want to believe that they're real people or something...I don't know. I'm not entire sure why I did it. I have no intention of posting from them, or acting on them, or anything, but just doing it brought me a sense of comfort. Along with a sense of, Oh my God, you're so weird, what is wrong with you?
So...Is there something wrong with me? Have any of you MDers done this, too? Is it weird that I have done this?
Also, just want to add: I know I came off really unprofessional in this blog. I apologize for that. This is not how I normally "speak" while "talking" to or with people, but I'm trying to hurry up and post this so I can get answers that will help me out.
Thanks in advance!
(Also, I do have a real Facebook profile. If you are interested in becoming friends with me, let me know! I'd be more than happy to connect with you on Facebook. I'm just really careful when it comes to who I give my personal information to, though, so I at least want to have talked with you before I send you the link to my profile. Thanks!)
