Hello, Your mother seems to be suffering from a psychotic illness...talking to herself is suggestive of hallucinations where people hear voices of other people which noone else hears. This is a symtpom of a mental illness which can be effectively treated with medications. Please consult a psychiatrist who will be able to diagnose and treat your mother.
