does anyone else feel the need to make verbal observations out loud to make connections in their brain? like, if I'm hot, I'll say "wow, it's hot here" to make the connection that, why I'm hot, is because it's hot in the area I'm in. But I have to say it out loud. people always think I'm complaining since I'm unusually stating the obvious, but it's just what I need to do for my brain to work.

      I do this because of my health anxiety

      I repeat things out loud to try and remember them. People around me tend to say yes you told me.. or I'm not stupid.. and I'll be like I was giving myself an outside reminder so I didn't forget..

      I talk to myself all the time! It helps me connect things.

      100%, and definitely coworkers have thought I was passive aggressively communicating and I'm like "no I'm just literally so tired it's all I can even think right now"

      No I do that too. It kinda just verbally confirms what I’m feeling or thinking. Plus sometimes, it can’t be helped. I’ve said the funniest things out of context lol

      I tend to find I verbalise anything I don't want to forget. Writing things down helps to minimise it.

      I absolutely do this. And I make a checklist of things, often annoying my boyfriend. I'll make a list of things I have on my person when we're leaving home so I know I have everything I'm gonna need, I'll make a list of places we need to go when we leave, stuff like that.

      Yep constantly talking out loud. Even when I'm in public x

      Yeah I do the exact same thing

    • europa.xavier

      yes i completely get this. or sometimes when i explain things i explain everything in detail, even if they may already know the information to ensure we both fully understand. i also talk out loud through a lot of the things i do, and most people find it incredibly annoying

      Yep I definitely do this. My husband thinks I am always indirectly asking him to do something about it and gets annoyed. Nope I dont need that, just acknowledging another thing I need to do and saying it verbally kinda helps me remember to do something about it

      I do this all the time!

      I have some pretty bad introspection issues so often that to feel the things that are actually happening to me while I'm distracted I have to take a moment to do an internal check list, and sometimes I also don't fully register it all when I do my check list and have to say what's wrong/what i need in order to fix it.

      I can definitely relate to that.
