gen, ALL of us ( us normal folks, that is ) talk to ourselves, usually in our head ( except when we drop something on our foot or bang our head ) and usually not out loud when someone else is around, unless we get forgetful. It's very, very normal. Best solution would be to find more ways to interest and amuse yourself through the day, so you don't get so bored !
