"First I will give you some background on myself. I am female, 25, married, stay at home mom to my two kids, ages 5 and 2. I have an issue I hope you can give me some information on. Ever since I was 16, I’ve talked to myself. I will literally create scenarios and HAVE to act them out, even speaking out loud. I will create other individuals in the scenarios with me. Sometimes these individuals can be famous people and sometimes they are people from my past. Most scenarios are situations that aren’t something that would actually happen in my real life, such as me being an actress. These can last from a few min up to an hour. And once the scenarios/talking begins, I become occupied by it and it comes first on my list at that time. I’ll even put it before my daily chores. I’ve tried researching this and haven’t had any luck. I hope you can help. Thanks!"
Ah, someone else. Ever since she was 16. Interesting. I don't know how long I've been doing it. Since before i was a teenager, at least. The professional answered back saying perhaps it was disassociation basically, but that she couldn't give her a definitive answer because she doesn't know enough.
"I've been doing this weird thing where I will literally stand around and talk to myself pretending to be different people that I know (friends) and putting myself and other people in different social situations. A lot of them are kind of soap-opera-ish like choosing between one guy and another or being pregnant and not knowing who the father is. I know it's weird and I try to stop but every time I look in the mirror or something it will start again. It's been going on ever since I can remember, but of course when I was like 5 it was never about being pregnant or anything like that. Am I freakin insane?!
And I'm very driven and involved in my school work and I hate group projects because no one else has the same drive for it to be perfect like I do, so I get frustrated and end up doing 80% of the workload by myself. I also feel awkward and insignificant in social situations especially with girls prettier than me and what not.
The only 2 things that were "high" on my test were avoidant and obsessive-compulsive."
"Over the past few years I have sort of become addicted to day dreaming and talking to imaginary people. I have really bad social anxiety spend most of my time in my room and dont really have many friends so I think thats the cause of it. But I can remember when I was about 5 years old I would pretend in my head that people were watching me through on a tv. I pictured them sitting in a room, and watching me, hearing what I say, and knowing my thoughts. It was so weird. But I think I did it because everyone saw and still does see me as the 'quiet' one and I wanted to show them my real personality. But it was all just in my head. I still do that sometimes though. All the time though I sit in my room, and pretend to talk to someone. I know I sound phsyco but I just dont know why I do this! I will sit in my room and listen to music, and pretend that I have a girlfriend, and she sits across from me and I will talk to her. (awww! how cute.) I used to do this with my best friend all the time before she ditched me... And before I go to sleep I have little day dreams in my head about my life in the future, or having a girlfriend, or getting married, even just shopping with my mom and imaginary girlfriend. Sometimes I lay in bed for HOURS just thinking up these little stories. I always called it 'imagining' since I was little. Do I imagine to have friends because I am lonely? HELP! I dont want to be crazy! Do other people do this ( CX )"
"So I was caught talking to myself in a really animated way today. I was so embarrased. I was actually imagining an argument with this dude who treated my dad really badly. In real life, I put that dude in his place and it felt good. But just the thought of how badly he treated my dad totally got me all riled up. I found myself imagining other things I should have said. What an idiot he was. In my imaginary re-enactment, I would have also said this, then he would has said that, and then I'd say this back to him, and then he'd know he was so wrong. Weird. I'm actually a pretty calm guy. The good news is that loser will never pester my dad again. Anyone else ever get caught up like this?" xD (wow, being caught. Ouch!)
"Talking to myself
Hey, I have an unusual thing that sometimes happens to me and I am wondering if others get this or if it is a mental problem or what. :\
The unusual occurence is that when I am in bed and tired, my mind starts thinking differently than usual and sometimes I think something in one kind of voice and then I answer it, basically, I have small conversations with myself without pausing to think about what I am saying or doing. I do not actually say these things out loud thank God. Yes, the voices are mine, they are not demonic or angelic or belong to any other kind of being that I know of, they are my voice. (lol... what if they were demonic voices? CX that would be hilarious)
Does anybody else have a similar kind of experience happen to them or anybody know what this is?"
What you'll get when you google things! If you have an embarrassing habit, don't think you're alone! Wow, I'm getting plenty of results CX some people reply to others saying they do it too.
One thing that annoyed me is that on psychforum someone said they think it's SPD, as if you need to have that or ought to even suspect someone has SPD to do it. It kind of annoyed me. I am certainly nowhere near schizoid. I'm not offended, I just don't like people getting things wrong about me or being incorrect. Same with someone saying they don't think I'm neurotypical. A lot of people don't say it but I've heard it a couple of times. I'm not going "HOW DARE YOU SAY IM AUTISTIC, YOU AUTIST" xD but it just annoys me because I don't think it's accurate and they never have enough reason to say so. I would expect that out of someone who also accuses many TV characters and every famous person in the world of having it. I go on a server where many of them (out of people that are there, anyway) call me an autist or an autistic ___(no no word... that's for another time and I don't want to incite people over the word). That doesn't bother me because I don't think they seriously think I'm autistic. They only started saying it after they knew I went to an autistic chat and some of the members on the server I'm talking about are actually autistic themselves. They don't point out they are autistic because they already know they are. They just want to bug me by saying I am, because they know I'm not ^^
Wow, I got off topic at the end there CX
