I’ll know something, a song I want to listen to, a person I want to mention, anything, something I know but my mind just goes blank when it’s “on the tip of my tounge” as people say. It’s been happening more than usual since my last two runs through mental hell. I’d been thinking of this as thought blocking, but I just looked it up again and I guess thought blocking is when someone’s speaking and just stops talking for a period of time. I know someone with schizophrenia that does this. What I’m experiencing isn’t that.
The odd thing though is that every time it happens I “hear” (more like someone’s thinking in my head though I have had auditory symptoms) a voice say “because I don’t want you to remember/say that” It’s really weird.
