On many occasions but only when it is really bad.  The last time I was on the bus and I didn't realise that I was doing it. I can not even remember what I was dreaming about at that time but I do remember the response.  A neighbour was on the bus and she turned to her partner and said, "Did you hear her?"  After that she told everyone in my area and now people call me "The Mad One."  It's quite awful actually because neighbours who had no issue with me will now avoid me and when they are with their children, if they see me they will pick them up and move as far away from me as possible or, they will cling to them as though they think I will hurt them.  Which just makes me feel really depressed and that, makes my MD worse.

i got caught wn i was only new to MDing by my mum while at the table eating, then most recently my little brother said that he's looking into my eyes and they seemed to be speaking (spooky)

I've been caught once (age 17) and it was by a friend of mine. When I DD, I don't speak the dialogue aloud, but I sometimes mouth the words and make facial expressions congruent to what's going on in the scenario. Apparently, I didn't even realize I was doing it until my friend looked at me and asked "What the heck are you doing?" I lied and said I was lip-syncing to a song I'd heard on the radio earlier. She bought it, but it was still really awkward.

I have many times.  One time my brother caught me and he stayed out of sight listening to it.  I knew he was listening but I had such a great story that I couldn't get it out of my head so I said "screw it!" and continued.  I was so embarrassed afterward that I could not look at my brother for a long time.  Now that brother thinks I am immature and perhaps even lazy.  Once my aunt called when I was in the middle of a sad episode.  I tried not to cry but I couldn't help it. She was so concerned that she was willing leave work or call someone to check on me.  I tried telling her I was fine and she said "you are scaring me".   I felt horrible that  I worried her so much because of a stupid DD. I haven't told a lot of family members.  My mom and sister are very supportive and glad I am trying to find ways of controlling DDs.   I really don't know what other family members think.  I am sure they love me even though few really know me, and they all might think I am a little crazy but then I ask... who isn't?

My family knows I do it. I usually stop when they come into the room because it's embarrassing. In public, I don't do this of course but if I have to, I use a cell phone to pretend I'm talking to someone else.

I've seen many dramas and tv shows which portray main characters talking to themselves, so why self-talk is not acceptable in society is beyond me.

I have been caught by my entire family. It was embarrassing but eventually once I found the name of what this is called I sat my mother down and explained to her what is and why she heard me in my room pacing, talking or why I go through so many headphones over the years.

I've been caught several times in public, the worst is when you don't consciously realize you're doing it until some stranger gives you an awkward stare or starts laughing at you for being the crazy person on the bus. My family probably knows that I do it, I think they try to ignore it because it's too strange for them to deal with and I am high functioning enough on the outside world so they also probably just try to write it off as a neurotic quirk.

I honestly think the worst moment for me was in fact not one that involved me being caught doing it, it was when I watched someone else do it (on two separate incidents years apart) I've seen very downtrodden homeless people do and "single loners" in public do it, I could also tell that it was not the usual schizophrenia because like me they were both acting out and tweaking different versions of "role play" and seemed perfectly well aware that the fantasies weren't real.  It was when I realized that what we had in common was a a desperate need to escape reality through using our minds by creating a sort of mental process that became addictive- like a drug.

I often feel sad and ashamed that it appears I cannot cope with the unhappiness in my life, and when people catch me talking to myself I'm always in a downward shame spiral. Embarrassed that I was caught, embarrassed that I was doing it, embarrassed that I rely on it to feel good, embarrassed that I am not "normal" enough.
