Lost in the static........ Can anyone relate to this?

It’s so hard to describe myself. Sometimes, especially late at night, something happens to my brain and I feel free of stress, my temperature gets cooler and my thoughts lighter, and I can think faster and I feel a little more like me… But as soon as I open my mouth my voice decides to clam up and I can barely speak, much less speak what’s on my mind… My mind and mouth are disconnected and I barely have the energy to let loose my vocal chords… I always feel like something else is guiding me or rather, misguiding me. Like every word I say or every letter I type has to be rehearsed at a moments notice in order for me to reflect on whether or not whatever I am about to communicate would have the approval of whatever outside force is watching and judging my every move. I’m so insecure and I haven’t felt like me in years.

sorry…you are feeling like this. :heart:

My son watches static on computer or on tv. He was recently diagnosed with schizophrenia. I can only imagine the insecure feelings. Thanks for sharing. So hard to understand all this.

I don’t know if it was static for me.

I know the racing thoughts would keep my voice locked…

What I wanted to say seemed to spin by faster then I could say it and it took a lot of work to slow the brain down enough to say simply things.

It would be too hard to get a thought together… much less talk about it.

Hope things get better for you soon… :v:
