    Whenever I talk to someone my mind seems to shut off and I can hear what the other person says but I'm not processing and understanding it, so I can't think of anything else to say after they've spoken

    What can I do to change this and not end up in this sort of situation again?

    No, haven't been diagnosed with it anyway so I don't think so

    They're either boring, you're just not interested in paying attention or maybe you're experiencing brain fog.

    Yes it's possible it could be brain fog, thanks!

    It meets the criteria for it, anyway to get rid of it?
