Is Talking to Myself Normal?

From a 13 year old boy in the U.S.: So I started talking to myself when I was about 6 or 7. I’ve always felt a little bit psychic. Which has nothing to do with this I think. But everytime, a week before a loved one of mine dies, without notice. I get a dream, which I wake up crying and the dream tells me I should start treating this person right, and outta nowhere. EXACTLY a week later the person dies. On from that, I have always talked to myself.

I just had a case of talking to my self and just started wondering if it was normal. It mainly happens when I am bored and have nothing to do. I was just riding my scooter and I got bored so I talked to myself. It consisted of me acting like 4 different personalities all with a different accent. Like, the dispatcher as a british man. The fellow police officers as scottish. Just many personas. I can hop out and be normal anytime I want but is this normal? I dont know if acting like different people is normal. But sure enough, sometimes, I act like I’m people talking to each other debating about stuff, arguing, ect.

Is this normal? Is this leading to any condition? I dont think its a habit. Because when I feel like doing it, I lose sense of my surroundings and mainly focus on the conversation. I was riding my scooter while doing it and someone was sitting around the corner and I got scared when they said “Hey there!” I didnt even know they were there. Is it normal?

A: I don’t know how to explain the psychic incidents. It may be that you have exquisite powers of observation, and that you notice things unconsciously that other people don’t notice. Or it may be a “gift”. As far as I know, no one has yet explained exactly why some people seem to intuit things that others don’t.

Highly creative, imaginative people often talk to themselves. Ask anyone who writes or who is in theatre. There’s nothing wrong with it unless doing it when riding causes an accident! I suspect you might have the talent to be a novelist or screen writer. It’s something to at least explore.

I wish you well.

Hair Pulling, Nail Biting, Skin Peeling and Biting

All my life I’ve bitten my nails. It’s caused me a lot of trouble, especially with my bipolar mother who has always thought screaming and shouting at me (and often a smack when I was younger) would make me stop.At around 7 I also started biting and peeling the skin on my fingers which has caused a lot of social and health issues for me from being to ashamed to join in with prayers at school, to getting my fingers getting a fungal infection causing long lasting damage to my fingers.Soon after I started to pull out the tiny hairs on my legs during school assembles and by 12 I began to pull my eyebrow hair out.How can I stop doing this to myself? I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time (I started biting the skin around my fingers just writing this and caused it to bleed a little). I’m afraid to bring this up with my parents because of how they have reacted in the past and I’m far too embarrassed to ask anyone I would typically trust. It has severally impacted how I interact with …

Painful Memories Evoke More Intense Emotions in Those With Depression

People with major depressive disorder (MDD) experience more intense negative emotions while recalling painful memories compared to non-depressed people, according to a new study published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging.And although those with MDD were able to turn down their negative emotions about as well as non-depressed people, they used different brain circuits to do so.The new findings pinpoint brain differences in MDD associated with the processing of autobiographical memories — one’s memories of personal events and knowledge of one’s life — that help us develop our sense of self and guide our interactions with the world around us.“This study provides new insights into the changes in brain function that are present in major depression,” said journal editor Cameron Carter, M.D. “It shows differences in how memory systems are engaged during emotion processing in depression and how people with the disorder must regulate these systems i…

People with depression have stronger emotional responses to negative memories

People with major depressive disorder (MDD) feel more negative emotion when remembering painful experiences than people without the disorder, according to a new study. The study reports that people with MDD were able to control the negative emotions about as well as people unaffected by MDD, but used somewhat different brain circuits to do so.
