I am going to the doctor today for a check up and a consultation on my depression/anxiety. I have been on 10 mg of Citalopram since May, 2012. Been talking to myself since I was eight years old. There are times when I can stop and times when I can not. There have been mornings, like this one, when I wake up and wonder what my purpose is.

I would like to say that I am happy to be able to join these discussions and I appreciate feedback. It helps to know that I am not alone.

    Hi, Susan:  I used to never talk to myself, but here lately, i'v started talking and even answering myself as soon as I get out of bed.  My grandmother used to do this all the time, so I guess I come by it naturally.....I have always wondered what my purpose in life was, but now, I think I know.  After years and years of depression, anxiety, talking to myself, answering myself, anorexia, and OCD, I now know that I am supposed to help others who are suffering the way that I used to...It's a horrible disease, but I'm here to help others...By helping others be able to cope, it makes me be able to cope, too...I wish you the best, sweetie...I don't think there is anything wrong with talking to yourself...It's the sure fired way of having an intelligent conversation....HUGS.

    Hi this reminds me of many years ago when I actually woke for work feeling a sense of purpose.   I told a work colleague and she said 'Oh dear'.  I said 'Yes,  must make sure that doesn't happen again'.  smile   x
