Yes, serious, I wondered that when I was a kid.
I remember spending a lot of time as a kid trying to figure out wtf was going on and what I was supposed to be doing. Why is everyone expecting "this" or "this" from me when I don't get it at all. Most of the time I didn't even get what "this" even was. It was like everyone else had some idea of what was going on and I was just kind of lost. I've been told this is an NP thing.
I'm old enough to know that things that I deal with aren't uncommon so that's not a concern but when I was a kid I didn't realize it. I read recently about a thing I had happen as a kid that means you are detached from your surroundings. I wonder how much that plays into the "wtf am I supposed to be doing??" thing or if it's just an NP thing.
The thing I used to wonder is if there was a finite number of organisms and they would swap out to different people to replace whoever was with me at the time. I actually told one of my siblings and they told everyone (6 kids) and I got teased for thinking everyone was a "blob that changes form" I was pretty young - 9?
I found this site, I haven't looked much but it's funny. http://www.iusedtobelieve.com/kids/i...t/truman_show/
I can't help but wonder the type of people who go through this kind of craziness.
Input into my craziness or information about yours is welcome.
