Oh, me too! Me too! Whenever I do, someone in the room thinks I'm talking to them! It feels like I can't stop myself from doing that. It's like it's a reflex or something. Why is it so much fun to talk to oneself?

I mentioned awhile back that there were people at my job who talked to themselves. I have just had my hours changed (for reasons having nothing to do with that) and was moved to a different group (in the same room). I don't fit in there. I know it's only my second week, but I fit in on the first day in my old group and I was accepted even though I had quirky habits because everyone else did. Now I have to break them. Or at least cut down on them. It's quieter there and the hours are better, but I feel like I'm putting on an act for these people. I feel like I can't quit talking to myself. I don't know if it's a need, a compulsion, a tic, or a VERY difficult habit to break, or all of the above. I am SOOOO EMBARRASSED!

You never know if there might be one of 'em or two that are more like the old group and just think it's a little quirky, even though the rest of the social messages are saying "you're a little weird, you KNOW THAT?"
I can only sympathize and tell ya to hang in there... could be before long they're thinking (tho' not saying, usually) "okay, you're a little weird, but you're OKAY."

I'm starting to get used to them.
