Since discovering I’m kin with these two characters, I’ve been using that cope with my mental illnesses but it’s making me doubt whether it’s real or not. It feels very real, but I don’t want to be a fake because I know copingkin is different. Do other mentally ill kin do this? Use their kin to cope after finding out they’re kin? Thanks.

Mentally ill and traumatized kin often use their knowledge of their kintypes to help them cope with their illness and stress, anon. Doing so does not make you not kin. The only thing that would make you copinglink instead of kin is if you deliberately picked the characters in order to use them to cope.
