You have a point there and I would like to add that the opposite can have the same affect. At least, I know it has for me. When I was freaking out over my apparent loss of sanity and inability to tell the difference between what I was told was real and what I experienced as real, my symptoms (if that is what they were) were present all the time and exacerbated by my freaking out over them. I just don't care anymore and, while I wouldn't say it's gone away per say, my symptoms are barely there compared to how they used to be.
That said, I have no idea if this is a mental illness or not, but I did get checked out by professionals and they say I'm not insane, just odd. Either way.
On the other hand, I also think that for me, it may have also occurred as something my brain made up to explain certain problems of mine. (Sorry for talking about myself so much. I only know my own experiences.) Either way, I'm not entirely sure it matters other than to satisfy curiosity.
What I actually meant though was more what Sephirah said about alternate universes and she has a point about that too. I've heard that theory before and would like to study it further, but brains and genetics are what I'm going into. Oh maybe I can study otherkin brains at some point if I can get funding (probably not).
I'm the one with the power around here. -Rumplestiltskin
