I am wondering if anyone can relate to having trouble getting words out sometimes? I go to say something get half way through the sentence and get stuck on remembering a particular word like a place name etc. - I feel so annoyed when this happens coz I know that I know the answer..and when the pressure is off to recall the word it comes to me in a flash grrr..Is this a nervous thing? Or am I losing my marbles lol?

I do too.. I feel demented and just stand there and say that one word or a couple.. and get confused...

I think it's from my meds, or maybe my mind is thinking too much, so I forget what I was focusing on.

Either which way.. yeah.. it sucks LOL

Yep , sometimes I can't get words out. Sometimes I stutter. I get my words round the wrong way. Sometimes I put a wrong word in a sentence. And at worst , when I feel really bad I can't read things right , I can't concentrate to spell - I feel totally dumb even though I know that's not true!
Partly nerves sometimes , but my worst time is in derealisation/depersonalisation mode , urrrggg!

Yep same here I blame mine on my fibro but I find it happens more when my anxiety is up. I will also forget what I was talking about not just words and have to ask what I was saying.
I have also lost my organational skills.
