I totally relate to what has been written so far in this discussion. I am living in an English speaking country but English is not my mother language. Before moving I used to have extremely good communication skills. I even participated in public speaking competitions, gave conferences and taught classes at graduate level (some of that in English). Right now it has been two years since I move and when I talk (and sometimes when I write) I feel like my IQ is half of what used to be. I even have problems to articulate my thoughts in my mother language. I really can't say if this is because of a chemical imbalance, depression, lack of confidence, cultural shock or stress. I can think of arguments to dismiss any of these as the root cause. Maybe it is something related to how the brain is structured. We learn to speak based on sounds, and then learn to interpret the reality based on words. Perhaps when moving to a place where the language and culture is different the brain needs to rewire many connections and the process is really painful. I hope it is a temporary phase and eventually be able to excel at communicating in English as good as I used to communicate in my native language.

I am dealing with the same issues! For as long as i can remember...i an 28 now. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder type 2 back in 2007. So i just attribute my behavior to that. You may want to see a psychiatrist.

I realize this is a very old blog but I still feel compelled to respond. I too experience this and to date I just live with it and continue to be whi I am. Maybe thats just who I was born to be. It's very depressing to live with this and especially when you see others speaking fluently.from a biblical prospective moses had to take Aaron as his mouth piece as he was not brilliant when it comes to expressing himself. Maybe I'm just the opposite of being able to speak and express self as there are opposites to everything in life. Don't know...its sad when you are the opposites.

Im 18 and from Malaysia and this is the first time i'm replying on any type of online forum. I had to reply to this because for the first time I have found other people who resonates with me on my predicament that i am going through.
For the past few years of adolescence till now i have been experience the similar symptoms as stated by you guys
a) Days when i feel "high" and king of the world while inevitably facing days where i feel so low and inferior to others.
b) On the "low" days, i cannot keep a conversation going and just go through brain fog for that whole day while when im "high" words just pop out effortlessly.
c) I find it so hard to concentrate in school and find self studying much more beneficial.
d) I am very forgetful
e) On my low days i feel like ill be going through the day aimlessly with my brain fog

Its like im two different people sometimes. One day i feel like the best person i can be and the next, i feel like this person who cannot do anything right. Recently i have begin to exercise and meditate every morning which has helped my mental state a bit but i still don't feel it being "normal". I used to be a sociable guy who gets friends effortlessly when i was 13-15 but now i find no motivation to make friends and am alone most of the time now. I think it is cyclothymia (a type of bipolar disorder) but im not sure myself. I spend so much of time online researching on this but to no avail. If anyone finds the problem and cause of this please share your knowledge. Thanks

I feel exactly same way.. I'm very stressed because of this.. Looking for solutions desperately. I have so much knowledge and skill in my own field but I don't make sense when I talk... bit before the words come out of my mouth I have clear path in my brain. Is any one out there who can help me on this ?

I am going through everything that you've been through. Living like this is very depressing. A lot of people think that am dumb because I am unable to hold a conversation. A lot of people look down on me because of it. There are some rays of sunlight where I feel like myself again but the feeling only lasts for a couple of days. All I want is my life back so I can go out into the world and leave a legacy

I recommend a sleep study. Sleep apnea can cause these symptoms - you may not know the nights you do or do not have interruptions in sleep architecture that can cause all of these mental issues. And more
