I keep talking to the air as if someone is there. I do it whether I am alone or not. Is this normal?

Posted 24 Mar 2014 by Another_anonymous 1 answer

I have an aggressive skin cancer that will pop up again-hopefully as stage one. To get a clear cut after the biopsy, the surgeon whacked off part of my nose and upper lip. It looks like I'm now going to become a friend of an ENT because the sinuses don't drain well on that side-I'm ...
