ive been having conversations to myself inside my head as someone like my therapist for example. i ask her a question and she responds with what i think she would say.

ive been out of it lately. i dont know if this is normal or not. im severely depressed by the way.

Oh my goodness, I do that all the time. I can't help but have imaginary conversations. I always thought it was pretty normal though... maybe I'm wrong?!

I am sorry you are so depressed. Have you seen your pdoc? I saw that you take Zoloft. I am sorry that isn't helping you. Maybe you need a new medication or a different dose.

I have conversations with myself all the time too.

Have you recently had a med change? Have you stopped taking your meds or some of them? If you are under any major stress that can cause this, idk. Not sure what it is that's happening to you, would be a good idea to let your pdoc know if this continues. I'm sorry if this is very uncomfortable for you. I hope your pdoc can do something about this.

Can you call or make an appointment with your pdoc so you can try another antidepressant?

Sometimes when I go to my pdoc appointments I write down everything I want to tell her so I don't forget anything. Maybe you can do that too. I know that when I finally get to see her I can't always articulate what I need to unless I have my list. You will be in my thoughts.

I would have imaginary conversations with myself when I was manic. Depressed, I tend to have a stream of thoughts that can be like a monologue, but I don't have those conversations in my head. I remembered one of the toughest questions I got asked in the hospital was "are you hearing voices?" I never knew quite how to answer that.

I do this every once in awhile. I don't think there is much harm in it as long as you aren't doing it all the time.
