Whenever I have to express an idea, that in my head I understand so well and so thoroughly, I am always choppy in speaking it aloud and sometimes go into a brain fog for a good few seconds before trying to re-direct my focus on something again. I fear for interviews but thrive in examinations and that can be my downfall. If I can't communicate myself properly I won't be able to deliver what I'm trying to say and will just look stupid. My friend once asked me where I was and I totally lost the words of what I was going to say, but I knew where I was and exactly what I was doing, and then she said I was planning out an excuse for why I didn't meet her. Help if any can be acquired?

It sounds like you might have some word finding difficulties (very common, especially when tired/anxious etc.!). Try to think of what the word means/its function e.g. if it's a place, try and think about what's there, how you get there etc. Think about what letter it might start with. Does it rhyme with anything?

I often Google things if I'm not quite sure too.

In terms of getting thoughts out e.g. for interviews, perhaps plan out and write down possible answers.

If you're finding you're getting brain fog a lot, perhaps talk to your GP
