so lately ive been noticing that i have been incorrectly using words when i talk to people and the more that i notice it...the worse that it gets!!! for the most part...i feel like its just because i am trying to pay too much attention to what i am saying and it comes out wrong. for example today i was trying to talk to my boss about hurricane katrina and instead i said hurricane korina!! and then it just like snow balls because in the next sentence i will mixed something up again and by now im feeling like ive lost the capabily to talk to people with flow. i feel like im 80 years old and forgetting stuff!!
anyways, i probably dragged this story on longer than i shouldve but, i was just wondering if anyone had some advice or understanding of what im feeling.

I do that sometimes. Its usually when I'm tired or have too much on my plate (like my mind is already off onto the next task!).

Try not to think about it and I'm sure it will stop. I usually make a joke of it when I do it, which seems to make people brush it off...

Im think we all do this when tired or stressed

think about what you want to say first ands take it a bit slower

Hello kate
Honey I do that all the time. I also got to where I mix up my spelling when trying to type or write words so don't feel you are alone here. Most of mine are from my fibro...they call it fibro fog and can even be talking to someone and forget what I was talking about. I have just had to learn to laugh at myself and say duh what was we talking about...he he he... Best wishes hun hang in there.
I have an illness, My illness don't have me.

As far as I know it happens to everyone and as you said it's one of those thing the more you think about it the worse it gets. Just relax you're alright.
