RE: Multiple Kin Identities Inquiry
Oh man, where do I even begin.
Given my exprience, which even among polytherians is abnormal, I think I might want to try answering thing's here.
I am a polytherian, but I have a total of 42 different theriotypes. Make that 41 theriotypes, and 1 Otherkin, for those playing along at home. You can go to my journal where I have listed them all. I will say that while searching and doing research, every animal I uncovered and confirmed was like a puzzle piece fitting into place. It clicked, it felt right, it felt..me. Granted, once I got upwards of around 6, I started to get a bit concerned that maybe I was something else, and was confusing feelings, that maybe I was a type of shapeshifter, but those ideas didn't click.
For me, I am each of those animals. I express them, I am them, I feel them. It's...a crowded place in my head at times, but I've not felt like anything is missing or anything for a while now, so I'm pretty sure the list is finalized and complete. It took me a very long time to come to terms with this. Even my bf, who is a therian as well, but just 1 type, has trouble telling the difference's at times. He's picked up some behavior and vocal changes form the different types, but not all of them.
Please, feel free to ask me questions, as I know my being 42 is far far removed from the "normal" polytherian experience.
