Hi! I’ve posted here before as a winged catkin, and got quite a few responses from others alike. Recently, though, I’ve had a…Breakthrough in my own mind. I suffer from diagnosed delusional paranoia, anxiety, and depression. I spent a lot of time thinking about my place as a cat in a human body, and honestly, I began wishing I was not a cat, but truly a human. I began feeling homesick over it, getting so irritated at this dysphoria. I love being in a human body. I did not yearn to be a cat, but a human. Then, one morning I woke up and…I had a clearness in my head. It was as if I was my mind observing my thoughts, the inner workings unknown. I realized, at this point, I /am/ human. I wanted to be a cat so bad, I thought that maybe I was one, maybe I am otherkin. So, I gave it a try, changing my mindset. The homesickness I had was because I had forced myself into thinking I was something I am not…I am posting this story here now, because I want to help any others with similar struggles. I do believe that otherkin are true, yes! But I also believe there are others like me, and since I got to the point of working past my self-delusion of being otherkin, I can help others who think they might be not be what they originally thought. Even if a questioning otherkin would want to talk to me, they can! I just want to help, for the fine lines of wanting and is are not as clear as we would want them to be. <3 My name is Jessie, and you can contact me through an ask, or my skype which is roxyanddacrew! Best wishes for everyone to discover their inner soul!
