Unhappy Worried about possible mental disorder? Imaginary people?

Alright, I have been doing some research on this for a couple days but I can not find any answers. It's been getting pretty bad lately and I need to know if I should seek professional help.

I have NEVER told ANYONE this before. I have been living with this since I was a kid. So I'm going to just get it all out now. So, like I said, ever since I was a kid, I have been having imaginary conversations with people who are not there. It's kind of hard to explain, but I KNOW these people are not real, but I talk to them like they are standing right next to me.

How do I say this... I don't hear voices in my head, but it's almost like what I want them to say, pops in my head, then I answer them out loud. it's almost like the things he or she is asking me/saying to me, are things that I can answer that would result in me venting about what I'm dealing with. Here's an example:

*Thought in my head as my friend sitting next to me*: So are you going to see Joe again?
Me (out loud): Answer..

This is mostly problems that I am facing in life...mostly with men...and the imaginary people are always people who I know, like my best friend. I will just be "answering her" even though she's not there...This can also be a happy, every day conversation with the person. It's like they are just sitting right next to me and I'm conversing with them. I feel psycho!

I was diagnosed with ADD in 4th grade (I am 24 now) but that probably has nothing to do with it. I have a very analytic mind. I CONSTANTLY over analyze and re-analyze situations, conversations etc. I thought that was normal being a woman and all... My mind races at night about my problems (again, mostly men) Constant ruminating thoughts about the same things....can anyone help? I feel like it's been getting worse over the years. I can not help this...it just comes out. I even do it in public when no one is looking...but very, very,very discreetly. It's always inaudible and little mouth movements.

Again, can anyone please help? Hope it all makes sense
