Yes by mistake. A medical prescription secret. He blabbed first. We both went to far. It's not a bad one just kind of personal. I used to have this problem before I matured, like early high school years. But I wised up. I now think before I speak. I think it was all the stress I've been under. Following me around and stuff. I'm paranoid now. But I'm hoping it will pass.

I too think it’s a loneliness thing , it’s fine to talk to an animal though whatever anyone thinks about it .

Some have said it's even good to talk to plants. Maybe those who talk to plants and animals are nicer to them. Who doesn't talk their pets at least?

I don't talk to myself as a rule. And with my speech, I would have self non understandable problems. However, in my sleep, last week, now I neve rknow what happens when I am sleeping, I called apparently out my pending partner's name!! I was very embarrassed, about that!

Yea , I move my mouth with no words coming out... I dont really care what most people think of it.. it's just normal for me nowadays. I usually do it in the car or in my bedroom..
I live alone. I talk loud to myself. I do need to stop. I can't think back to a time I felt like I was talking normally.

What ever helps the person mentally is usually the best policy.. I noticed moving my mouth helps out tremendously with cognitive things , speaking and the words just feel like its smoother... everything flows nicely for me this way generally.

I'm starting to talk to people who aren't here. Even weirder I can see them. I took double my medication.

I found myself recently doing it at times , to block out the voice completing my chain of thoughts for me .
