Anyone have constant conversations w/ yourself, in your head

Simply anxiety/obsessions? Or is this some mild schizo?
Ya know, most of my DR is gone! I'm left w/ this bad anxiety/depression and the constant chatter in my head.

I once posted a thread about feeling possessed because this is how my thoughts make me feel sometimes. I think the bad feeling about our own thoughts is just part of the disconnect feeling we get from dp.
I don't think that anyone has complete control over their thoughts.
We just obsess over them too much.

I wonder the same thing as someone else said here; how do other people's thoughts come to them if they don't talk to themselves? How do they think? what's it like to be inside their heads?
I don't think this is exclusivly a schizo thing. It seems to also be caused by anxiety, depression, social isolation, excitement, etc. Or maybe it is just normal and everyone does it?. But i do have schizophrenia, and aside from talking to myself and making up imaginary people in my head, i also hear voices, but i am rarely able to talk back to them because they talk so fast and say things that don't make much sense and are too busy talking between themselves. But the other day, one did come out and talk directly to me. First, she was criticising me, then she told me that her name was "Katie or Katrina" ...heh...guess she couldn't make up her mind, or she was just trying to annoy me.

here's what is says
Talking to yourself:
Having a conversation with yourself out loud, as though you are speaking to a separate person. Possibly you will even answer yourself out loud as well, taking on the role of two separate individuals. Everyone has internal dialogues when making a decision, preparing a speech, or practicing for or rehearsing a future conversation, but during a depersonalization episode these dialogues are often out loud and take place much more frequently.
this is exactly what i do. i act out myself and another person i may have a conversation with. i do it all the time, all day long. either that or i have a song stuck in my head. this certain part of our brain seems to be over active. i wish i knew which part it is.
i believe 'normal' people do this too, but not to the same extent. for me it is louder and more frequent now compared to when i wasn't sick.
