Is my mind rapidly deteriorating?
Whenever I write, I keep skipping words. It happens in texting, emails, work meetings, and even posts online. My mind thinks itís typing the full sentence, but itís not. I have to double check everything now. Iím losing my memory. If I think about something, I see faint but very real images of it through my eyes. Is it alcohol?

When I'm talking to other people (out loud, using my voice) sometimes entire words will just randomly drop out of my sentences. Like, my vocal cords just decide not to make the sounds. So I'll have to keep repeating myself. This happens a lot when I'm ordering something at a restaurant, or when I'm otherwise nervous and have to use my words.

Server: "What can I get you?"
Me: "I'll have a large _____ and a strawberry muffin."
Server: "A large what?"
Me: "A large coffee, with ____."
Server: "With what?"
Me: "With cream."
Server: "What kind of muffin?"
Me: "A _____berry muffin."
Server: "A what kind of muffin?"
Me: "Strawberry."

^ this is a fairly typical example of my ordering capabilities

It doesn't happen when I'm just having a conversation with someone I know and trust.

Can't tell you why you might be having that problem. Do you drink a lot?

So you talk about work etc.

My first question then would be how stressed do you feel?
Because stress is something that can and will cause something like this.

Another thing is, do you sleep enough (how much?)
