Just kidding! I'm fine, said the other voice in my head.
Did you take your meds today dear? You know we worry about you.

I was fiddlin' around in the kitchen this morning doing chores and cleaning out the fridge, while Tyler was playing with his cars at the dining room table. He asked me who I was talking to.

I have my own special crazy, Addie! Not sure there's meds for it though...

Cheryl, I do tend to mumble to myself, but usually in private. Oh well, I have a theater degree. I'll have to print out a sign that says I have a theater degree, please ignore me when I mumble to myself in public and shrug!

Well, if it is any comfort, I doubt if any of us are alone when it comes to talking out loud to ourselves. Pirate and myself all day are saying, "what, what, what?" It is just us talking to ourselves and thinking we are talking to each other.

We have come up with an answer to the whole problem though. When one of us says "What?", we answer, "it is just Margaret again." She is the imaginary person who is haunting this apartment. She makes us do strange things all the time.

My Mom said it was perfectly fine to talk to yourself out loud. It was only when you started to answer back that you had to worry. I've been teetering on the edge for years.

CG, I always solve my own issues, mostly by talking to myself and shrugging.

I will have to get DH a hearing aid. While he's not listened to me in over 30 years, now it's, "What?" , "Huh?" And I actually think he can't hear me, instead of ignoring me like he always did before.

In our case, Himself has been "Not listening since 1974". We have a routine: when I think he's been ignoring me I'll say "but you're not listening to me". He then replies with "What?" The funny thing is, if I ask him what I just said, he can repeat it back nearly word-for-word. The guy annoys me to no end. And yet I let him live.

About talking to oneself, the Danes have a saying, "You need someone sensible to talk to once in a while."

I always tell people it's the only way I can have an intelligent conversation.
