Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Many people talk to themselves outloud

Dr. K. :

It can be a way to sort out problems and feelings. It also can be a way to talk about things when you do not have anyone available to listen,

Dr. K. :

Its concerning for mental illness if you are hearing voices, or talking to people who are not there

Dr. K. :

It would really be better to get counseling and help from a mental health professional
