Today I was talking with my girlfriend about something. I went to tell her something and in a flash it seemed as though I could not for the life of me recall what I was going to say, almost to the point that I was confused and became nervous and scared. I guess what I'm getting at is: Does anyone often feel like they cannot think of something or think back on something even if they tried their hardest? I'm talking about frustrating-the-hell-out- of-you-trying-to-think-of-this confusion? Of course I'm always quick to think the worst... UGH :x

Yes! I sometimes get that, it's so incredibly annoying and frustrating. My mom seems to sometimes get that as well. I'm pretty sure it's normal.

Just making it clear that it's not like "Oh what was the name of that song..." It's like "Why can't I remember what I did yesterday???" or "What was I thinking about 2 seconds ago?" It only happens for like a minute but then I can remember after that. These periods of confusion are worrying me badly.

I knew what you are talking about. I have that same thing. I can sometimes completely forget what my last meal was, what I did a few days ago, where I went yesterday, all that kind of stuff. It seems like my sense of time has gotten all screwed up.

Da'Burgh -

It happens to me all the time!

This is normal for everyone in life is my feeling. I think it just brings people with high anxiety to a higher level because we question why instead of just shrugging it off.

Who cares if you can't remember what you had for dinner yesterday, right? Most meals aren't that memorable

I have it too, but not precicely as you describe it... If I only could remember how I have it... :)

Well, I only connect it with just not beeing in the perfect available mental state. So, I suppose it's normal.

Lately, this has been happening to me more often, though it has always been a problem for me because of anxiety. I will be talking, telling a story or something, and then all of a sudden I will blank out and it feels like English has become a foreign language. I become all panicky. I have to stop, breathe deeply and think really really hard. It is SO humiliating and I wonder if the people listening think I am insane. I think it maybe happens more when I am stressed or tired.

it doesnt make me stop, but it makes me feel strange. It is the circumstance that does it. When I am feeling anxious about what is happening around, this effect comes.

Someone who cooks your food would be pretty upset if they saw this :p .

The past seems like a haze. and i seem to be pretty apathetic to memories of the yesterday, which is both a good and a bad thing. When i try to visualize a past event, i pretty much just see a few vague slides.

Alike with me. must be emotional. Seems like a common thing when one's mind is concerned of other stuff, more "heavy". Just my opinion,
