hi im 23 years old and for the past few years i always found myself to have poor comunication skills, i have trouble explaining simple things that might have happened during the day were id leave things out and also have a poor short term memory, if someone asked me to explain a sport i might play i would have trouble explaining it even if i was playing the game 10 years, im not sure if i have a mental block or what it is and if it can be treated, or like story telling or telling jokes i just cannot do and i find it very frustrating, even telling you whats wrong with me is hard to explain lol, im not stupid or dont see myself as slow i think im very intelligent and clever. my speech at times can be a little kinda slurry at times but generally im ok but that might have somethin else to do with it, its hard to explain how im feeling even now iv been tryin to explain my condition for nearly 20 miutes now.basically its kinda like i have all the information in my head and just have trouble getting it out like, any comments would be greatly appreciated ty

  • Judging by your post I'd say that you do very well at explaining things. At least your composition skills seem perfectly intact. Do you ingest any sort of Nutra sweet sweetend foods? Nutra sweet has been shown to directly affect the short term memory. If you drink diet sodas, then you possibly have experienced reduced short term memory skills depending on the amount you drank. Many prepared foods and diet foods also include Nutra-sweet as an ingredient. Luckily the symptoms are only temporary. All you have to do to reverse the effects is to stop eating/drinking them. Good-Luck and I hope this helps.

  • wow that second paragraph you wrote is all me, like all the information is in my head but i just have trouble explaining it, my mind goes blank or i only remember bits of the story/subject and the information comes out in patches, when i write it actually relaxes me cause i seem to get the information out a lot easier and sound a lot smarter and well spoken lol. its just a such a struggle talking to even people i know about something that might have happened last night or that day. its so frustrating. what do you mean by cell phone towers? actually now that i think about it i seem to talk a lot better funniely enough when im drunk, can anyone shed any light on that, i thought it would be the other way around ha.

I myself have done this same thing my whole life, and Im 52. I still do it from time to time. I feel its just letting your surrounding intemidate you, such as being in a room full of people, or being being put on the spot at work where your imput could help resolve technical issues. First you have to breath and relax BEFORE you speek. When you rush into it, its only gonna get worse. You will become frustrated and angry, and when your emotions come into play you are going to say just whats on your mind, but your tone is not going to be excepted very well. In a meeting sit with a friend or some one that you are comfortable with. Relay information through him or her if you are not prepared to talk. Let them speak for you. If they take credit for your imput or idea, you are setting next to the wrong person.When you find yourself not being able to communicate clearly, STOP TALKING. Calm yourself down, or discuss it later. If its important write in down, then give it to the person you are trying to talk to. If you are mentally prepared, your words will flow as they should. When you are not mentally prepared, find another way to communicate.
