Felt Having A Shadow Friend From Childhood Until Now?
Hello, I want to ask
Hello Hamzah, Thank you for the question.
Having an imaginary friend is still fairly normal for children because children have a high imagination and are developing so that this condition can be considered reasonable. However, along with age, children will begin to realize that the imaginary friend is not real, so in general the imaginary friend will disappear. If at your current age you still see imaginary friends, this cannot be considered natural. This can be caused by schizophrenia, depression with psychotic disorders, nerve disorders, electrolyte disorders, and others. If this continues, I suggest you consult with a psychiatrist / psychiatrist. The doctor will conduct a question and answer session to understand your condition before determining your medical condition and determining subsequent treatment.
Please try to control the imagination. Increase positive activities such as exercising regularly, joining social or religious activities, and others. Tell your family or closest friends if you have certain thoughts.
