Are you sure?

Today, after a long therapy session, in which I poured out all my feelings of how happy and in love I am with whom I believe to be my soul-mate, my shrink asked me if I was sure this guy wasn't a figment of my imagination. FML
I agree, your life sucks 30 228

I don't know what he's talking about. Imaginary people are the best! They're always there with you, no matter what! I prefer to capture mine and use them for hard labor but whatever works for you I guess.

Is the shrink real? A good way to determine would be to check your wallet and see if large amounts of money have gone missing.

Haha the imagination and mind do crazy things huh? Nah you need a new shrink

The difference is OP's doctor knows her history and behaviour patterns; we don't. As many posts as we've seen here about made up SOs, I can't fault the shrink for asking. People don't usually waste money to brag for 50 minutes about how life is perfect.

Sometimes I curl up under my bed and pretend to be a carrot.

Disagree, I think it was a thought-provoking, perfectly appropriate therapeutic question. The op's incessant gushing probably indicated that she may be exaggerating, fantasizing, and not purposely making stuff up, but is creating an unhealthy, distorted obsession.

People tend to imagine others to be what they want and not who that person really is, especially in the beginning of a relationship. Certain anxiety and depression disorders can make this worse and when reality sets in, it can be painful. I don't think the Pdoc meant if the person was real, but rather the persona that the op is viewing him as. It is healthy to sit back and evaluate how you are idealizing someone, otherwise you can set yourself up for a massive crash.

Or a llama, with a slight possibility of being a penguin.

Why see a shrink when you could have just told your diary. Diaries never question things, like the validity of your real or maybe not real soulmate.

Plus everyone will like having written records to determine what triggered the insanity.

And if he's real, can he beat up your shrink for being an anus head? Stay tuned!
