Theories and findings
As I understand it, this forum includes the scientifically minded yes? I am wondering what theories people have come up with and what they have discovered.
I have a theory that this otherkin thing may have developed due to abuse issues (at least, it may have for me) since it is common for survivors to feel different. However, I still don’t have an explanation for why I felt this way before the abuse started.
I do consider the possibility that I am insane. I have gotten checked out several times by professionals. By that, I mean psychiatrists, psychologists, and various counsellors who have had many years of training and experience. The consensus was that I am sane, just odd. I also took anti-psychotics for awhile to try to make this go away (got them legally from a corrupt psych and, yes, I know lots of mentally ill people probably say psychs are corrupt, but this guy really does have a reputation). I have discovered that I do not react well to having my dopamine messed with, but it did not make any of this otherkin stuff go away. I do still consider insanity a possibility, but get pissed off when random strangers who have never met me claim to know better than trained professionals.
So... What theories and discoveries have you guys made?
