I’m 19 years old. I been talking by myself of course since I was a kid. But, at 10 I stop talking by myself and when I was 12 I start talking by myself again. I keep talking by myself until now. When I was alone or bored I will start talking to myself until my mom thought I was talking and befriend with the ghost. I keep talking then I’m gonna stop talking by myself and few minutes after that I realise that there’s no one talking to me. Everytime I’m talking to myself I can imagine there’s people Infront of my talking to me. Sometime I can see, hear or even touch thing that’s not even exist. Am I crazy? Idk my parents thought that I’m talking to ghost and they told me to stop talking to myself but I can’t everytime I tried not to talking by myself or just sit without trying to talking to myself I will got tired by a sudden. Please doctor am I crazy or I just tired?
