I have a friend who seems to be a bit similar to you. Sometimes when I talk to her, Im actually talking to her thru other people who are present. When she asks me ... why am I talking to others, when Im actually addressing her, I tell her... its no different if I talk to this person or that person or the wall over there. It all has the same effect as talking to her. Nothing seems to 'penetrate' or register with her. Its really fascinating sometimes.

Earthly minds, like mud-walls, resist the strongest batteries: And though perhaps sometimes the force of a clear argument may make some impression, yet they nevertheless stand firm, and keep out the enemy truth, that would captivate or disturb them.

— Locke, John (1632-1704)
