Did we miss anyone?


  1. As an only child… I too talk to myself….During those days…it was a sign of having a problem… or crazy…. Because I was the only child my mom or me didn’t looked at it as sign…I was an only child…. However,
    instinctively I got the message that talking to yourself was not commonly accepted by the general population…. After my therapy sesssion my therapist didn’t think a problem…, I did not either…. It allowed me to flush out things that bothered …and hear them out loud away of heat my thoughts….
