Weird habit

Lately Ive been noticing that I reherase conversations that have either taken place, might take place, or will take place.
I cant explain it, like in the past if i was talking to someone id act out again this conversation as if it was real although theres no one around sometimes i think its just a way of coping with my anxiety and helps me relax... but you got to admit its a bit bizarre??

I sit there just speaking aloud and sometimes laughing although the conversation isnt real?!

I think Im going mad but I am under a hell of alot of stress but i think its more than that?!

Any clues ??

Re: Weird habit

you know, im exactly the same.

exactly, the same.

sumtimes, i go to bed at night, and wil act out practically evry conversation iv had that day. which is frustrating as it stops u from sleeping!! :s

anyway, i think its a form of OCD, because after all, you're obsessively going over sumthing in ur head, over and over and over. i can do it up to 10 times, bsaically, until i feel happy with it. which is, odd, i know.

i know mine is OCD, because iv had many forms of that disordr throughout my life so far... but, maybe urs is just a "phase". personally, i hate being told that.

feel free to chat to me more if u wish.. mayb we can try and wrk smthing out.. =|

Re: Weird habit

I know what you mean. I used to repeat phrases I heard, just about immediatly. Was really wierd.

I haven't done that for ages, but I still tend to lie awake in bed and create scenarios. Its caused by anxiety or stress. Where you want to be active, but have no outlet for it. Its all just because your brain is more active then it needs to be.

I'd say a fair few ppl do it, but I wouldn't imagine many of them would tell anyone...

Re: Weird habit

I do the same. I think it's better that you do. Just don't talk aloud.

Re: Weird habit

Bleh I do the same thing, but when I do it's when I'm alone, and I usually whisper it. But no you aren't crazy; like me, you probably just have a yearning to sound articluate.

Re: Weird habit

i think its sorta normal because i do it too.. not every convo.. but the important ones.. if i say something i didnt like i would sorta change it to myself.. kinda like preparing me for another convo that may be like that. i would basically "edit" my own convo.

lol its fine... i dont really care that i do it.. so dont let it bother you
