I just can't shake the feeling that I'm alien and not human. I've had this feeling for a long time. and it's weird. and it's hard to explain not feeling human to other people, because even I have a hard time putting it into words.
Maybe you have did and have an alien alter
hmm, I've never thought of that. Is there a way I would know if that's the case?
idrk if there's a specific way to know
i tend to feel like this a lot (though personally my feelings are more supernatural than alien), and for me its always hard to tell whether its from dissociation or autism. my dissociation makes me feel like im quite literally not a person, this isnt my life, things arent right, etc. whereas my autism makes me feel not human because it causes me to not think and react like normal people do, therefore i must not be a person. sometimes that dissociatiom ties into childhood trauma where i feel like they treated me like im not human, therefore i must not be human. does that make sense?
yea, I think this helps and I feel similarly. I also have dissociation, but I also don't know yet if I have autism. Whenever I look up how I "feel like an alien" I get articles written by autistic people, I think I might be but I'm not diagnosed yet. I remember even growing up I just always felt non human, for a bit I thought I was like a dog and was eating dog food and being weird, and in play scenarios I always had to be an animal because pretending to be a human felt uncomfortable. I've also had my family tell me things growing up like "act like a human being!" When I would sit with my legs close to my body or eat food with my hands. It's hard to disentangle how I feel from how I have always felt, sometimes felt, and have been treated.
I would get tested for did/ osdd if I were you(assuming you have the money to do so) that sounds like it may be osdd but I'm not a professional I just know I have similar feelings when my cat alter fronts so yeah
i ABSOLUTELY feel that, i was always the exact same way. i always genuinely believed i was a cat (and sometimes still do), always acted like one, always got scolded for "acting weird." its actually what everybody (even classmates) knew me for, i was just kind of my "thing," i was a the cat boy.
you might look into autism, and my dms are always open if you want to talk!
thank you so much for your reply, I didn't know people could relate :,) I really appreciate it! I plan on taking an autism assessment soon if I can.
