I talk to myself all the time and don't think of myself as crazy. They say that only if you answer yourself, then your crazy. Scitsofrenic is the term I think.

Hi hermosa,

Absolutely not! If anything, I would say that it's a sign of a healthy (but overloaded) mind. I talk to myself at times, and I'm not crazy or with mental defect.

I like my answers, and I always win the argument when I talk to myself, so what's not to like?!?! LOL.

Seriously though, I find that I talk to myself when I'm feeling stressed, and stress is the primary enemy of M.S., so I talk out loud; it helps me vent and sort things out. And the dogs don't mind either!

I don't think that figuring out what you would say if a particular situation happened is a bad thing, it just sounds to me as though the young lady was quite stressed about the prospect of that situation and was trying to find a way to deal with it.

Let's have a cup of tea and relax, it will all be fine!

Happy Holidays!!

To begin with, daydreaming and hallucinating are two different things. Also, lots of people talk to themselves and it doesn't mean they have a mental problem. I would be more concerned if a person would be talking to someone who isn't there... And getting an answer. I don't think it's so unusual for people to contemplate a situation and try to figure out how they might respond to it.

Talking to myself does not make me crazy. I talk to myself when I am out of senses or when I am loosing my temper. Talking to yourself doesn't means you are crazy.

People tend to project their own fears on the actions of others.  Is there a possibility that you may be afraid that you are suffering from a mental illness?
