These Illustrations Of A Woman’s Childhood ‘Friends’ Before Being Given Heavy Meds Will Give You Chills

Published 6 years ago

Ever since she was little, Imgur user Sierra says she has been seeing imaginary friends. Even though she remembers seeing them in great detail, after being put on heavy medication at age 14, the imaginary friends disappeared. Sierra says she honestly misses them and likes to think they are real – after all, they provided her with comfort during her dark times. “They are just waiting for me somewhere else,” she says.

“The first few times they crawled into bed with me was the scariest,”  Sierra told Bored Panda. Yet they slept with her every night in order for her not to fear them. With time, Sierra grew more comfortable with her imaginary friends: “It was like having a sleepover with your best friends every day. We conversed, sang, swam, ate, enjoyed one another. It was peaceful in a way.” Sierra’s descriptions offer a unique in-depth look at what it was like to be surrounded by imaginary friends through the eyes of a child.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
