Um hi! I'm not very sure how any of this works (first time ever posting anything on a forum) but I'll try my best to explain what's going on in hopes of some advice. I'm a pretty social person around people that I know well and I have a few friends. But the problem is: I don't share almost any of the same interests with these friends and that makes me feel so lonely because I can never talk about my interests without feeling like I'm annoying them because they don't know what I'm talking about. And because of this, I've been feeling really lonely and that loneliness has led me to pretend like I am having conversations with people that aren't there. It's not like I'm seeing things, I'm not. I just have developed a habit of having imaginary conversations with people. I'll sit down in my room and just look to my side and smile and laugh and talk and go on and on about some film I just saw or something of the sort, pretending that there is someone there talking to me. No one knows about this, I'm often home alone. The main problem is, I've started to do this without even noticing..in public. It's only happened a few times in public and I was very subtle about it, but it made me feel weird. I'm sorry this was so long, if anyone does take the time to read this...is this normal? What should I do to stop it? What should I do about the friend thing? Please help! (Im putting this under the anxiety thing because I have anxiety and I don't where else to put it. Sorry if it's not anxiety related I guess)
