Has anyone experienced this?
Thinking too much makes me feel like I'm losing mental focus. But if I'm stressed (especially from school or any academic or thought-oriented project) I will actually lose my power over speech or simple problem solving.
I am very good with words. Typically, I am never really at a loss when it comes to saying what I want to say exactly how I want to say it (except when it comes to being judgmental towards those I care about - that I have to be careful with)... But I can speak well. I have an good, productive vocabulary and I'm not usually actively concentrating on what I'm saying.
Then I get to this point where I'm slurring my speech occasionally or "tripping" over my words. Also, I never really have problem with mental math and reactive problem solving (statistics, scheduling, quantifying & such) but when I'm like this, I can be stuck on the simplest problem, completely drawing a blank in my head.
I figure this can't be too uncommon. Could it be type related since Thinking isn't my strong suit? Also, I only really notice it when I am around other people (but maybe that's just because it wouldn't really be an issue if other people weren't involved).
It seems to be stress-related & temporary, but I don't really know what causes it or how I've come out of it in the past.
