I have long since had a habit of referring to myself in the plural. I am wondering if this is entirely normal... Lately I've felt like there's three personalities in my mind - there's myself, a second, very strong personality, and a third, lesser personality that usually is there just to agree with the stronger one. but i think it's starting to turn me crazy. thoughts like "we don't need help, we are fine on our own," keep crossing my mind. "we" have each other. "we" don't need other friends (an argument as to why I should distance myself from my real friends, who, the voices tell me, can only be hurt through their association with me). but i'm scared of being left alone with them. i'm starting to wish it was just "me". "i". "myself". not we. but does anybody else ever experience this? am i really losing my mind??? it's going to be hard to talk to my shrink about this, a) because he prolly won't get it and b) because that usually stirs a reaction from the "others" - they start complaining etc and i have to reassure them that no one can take them away...
