Kin Type question?
Okay, i am asking this on behalf of a friend that is over at the moment with me.

She is otherkin but we are trying to determine what a name is for the kin type.
The closest she can describe the kin is to that of a nobody in the game Kingdom Hearts. (I personally know little about the game so i can't help much)

We have a list of things that she can describe that go along with the otherkin she is.
1.) dealing with emotions: she feels pissed when people cry, sometimes smile about people dying, and the most basic emotions are semi understandable but anything complex is mind boggling.
2.) she has problems with doors. the concept of a door is not quite understood, as though they are not needed for what she is.
3.) Sensitivity to bright lights could be connected with this as well.....very prone to have migraines due to the bright lights and loud high pitch noises.

This is what they have told me and i don't know what it is. Shadows are close but she feels that shadows are not quite right.

Please let us know what it possibly could be if you all could please. ^^ Thank you.

Why are you so sure she's otherkin?
1) Sounds like an empathy problem. I mean, a problem with the mirror neurons in the brain (whose effect is called empathy). a.k.a.: a psychological problem
2) Also sounds like a psychological problem. If that was a significant trait of a kin-type, I'm not really aware of it. It takes a lot of special-ness to be able to pass through matter.
3) Sounds like . . . just migraines. I'm sensitive to bright lights, my mom and brother get a lot of migraines, it's a genetic thing. A sensitivity to bright lights is a physical symptom, just something odd with the eye.

I'd get these checked out by doctors, first. The migraines especially, because those can be caused by a lot of serious problems. You don't want to label something as "otherkin" when it could be very serious medically and have consequences in the future.

Re: Kin Type question?
She gotten alot of this stuff checked out with many different doctors. they have put her on many different medications which one made her very sick and none have helped at all.

We know she is otherkin because she has sides like a different entity from a past life. we aren't sure if it is past life or not. the sides have changed over time though, but that was due to a vampire kin living in her house for a year and that messed her up majorly...loosing all her sides at that time and now is still trying to recover some from the incident even after year. The vampire was very strong, i wanted to be around her alot when she was here but once she was gone it was like a relief and you are missing something. i haven't been able be as attacted to my kin as well since i was around her and i am sure that my friend is confused like this as well. without the incident she would be a shapeshifter and there is no question about that since she knew it well.

Re: Kin Type question?
Sides like a multiple?
Shapeshifter as in a p-shifter?
Has she had an MRI for the headaches?
What do you mean "attracted to my kin?" Are you talking about your kin-types? Aren't you your kin-types?

If you don't mind my asking, How old is she?

Sorry! I don't get to ask a lot of questions so I'm kind of going a bit nuts. Let me know if I start sounding offensive or something like that, I don't mean to.

P.S.: I WAS WRONG!!! Number 1 is more of an affect (pronounced AF-ect) issue. That is associated with a number of psychological issues, and migraines are often linked to psychological issues. I strongly recommend getting that checked out by a certified psychologist or psychotherapist.

Re: Kin Type question?
Yes, like multiples but the sides were all the same thing before. Now, they are bit confusing since they are different than before and its still confusing alot.
Shapeshifter like p-shifter, i think it was p-shifting. apparently when she was shapeshifter she would go through a day thinking she looked different then what she really did. and was surprised at what she looked like when she saw it in the mirror.
She has had either an MRI or a CT scan. She doesn't know which.
and i meant attached to my kin, that was a typo sorry.
and she will be 19 coming this november.

and its not a problem with the quesitons. its better than not saying anything really. ^^

as for the therapist thing, she has gone to them before and they are confused with what is wrong as well.

Re: Kin Type question?
Okay, I'm not a tactful person, so thanks for not being offended. ^__^

Honestly, this really, really sounds like mental disorder. I know a lot of people shy away from those words but they happen. I've had several (currently only my life-long one) so sometimes I forget how much people can be freaked out by that possibility.
The affect, differentiation/dissociation with multiples and shapeshifting belief, confusion (about the doors), and migraines kind of seem like a dissociative identity disorder. It kind of sounded like the "sides" were a part of her, you know, like multiple aspects of herself. This disorder is *extremely* difficult to self-recognize and you don't need all the symptoms, which is why I recommend the therapist.
Also, it's not even for sure that the issue is this. I took a test to see how dissociated I was and I scored pretty darn high, but I don't have this disorder. I'd just, like I said, get it checked out with the idea that the issue is some kind of dissociative problem.

There's nothing here saying she's not otherkin or she can't be otherkin. I'm not saying she isn't, I'm just saying that the very limited number of symptoms you've presented seem more along the lines of a psychological issue. But, I'm not always right (unfortunately ;P), so she should still keep her options open. It's more likely a mental thing, though, instead of otherkin, and I'm sure she wouldn't want to jump to incorrect conclusions.

P.S.: NEVER self-diagnose a psychological issue, that's why I kept recommending a therapist. Trust the professional. At the least she can rule out the possibility of a mental cause.

Re: Kin Type question?
she has been to tons of doctors already. on her fourth therapist now and the neurologist thinks nothing is wrong. Her family has looked into things and she doesn't shy away from telling people about things like this.

Re: Kin Type question?
I have read that forum once before and i know that is how it works. this is how i know she is otherkin. i don't think i mentioned that before just cause its common sense that i can tell she has that and i was trying to relay stuff in text from what they were talking about. she has the out of body/mind thoughts and such so that she is otherkin. i am just helping her to try to determine what the kin type is called.
