Q: I talk to myself out-loud. I do not talk loud, I just whisper or mumble to myself when pondering a problem or issue. My wife thinks that I have mental problems and this is a symptom. What do you think?
A: The good news is that this doesn’t prove you have mental problems!
The bad news is that this doesn’t prove that you don’t either!
We all talk to ourselves internally… and most of us do some of it out loud, especially when we are alone or with people who understand us and accept us. I hope your wife is only teasing you about this and she does accept you as you are.
If your wife is even a little bit serious about calling you crazy, tell her to stop it… and ask her to tell you what she wants from you instead of calling you names.
