Your brain works faster than your mouth can keep up with?

Hi, I've always had the problem of my brain seeming to think faster than my mouth can keep up with, so I'll start on a sentence and the last of my words will come out as just blurbs. When I was diagnosed with ADD, the psychologist suggested I may also have an auditory processing disorder. Could there be a link? Anyone else have this problem?

Before I was diagnosed with ADD, my family took me to a speech specialist in Cananda as I had problems speaking. Like you, my mouth couldn't keep up with my brain. Now a days, people comment on how fast I talk and I sometimes mix words together as before I can speak, Ive already thought of other words that could be use alternatively. Just comes out as a big ol' jumble :-) I just have to force myself to speak slowly and I don't have a problem, but if I get excited or nervous I start to stutter hehe.

Auditory processing is how you take in information. Speech is more like "output" (talking, writing, etc). I believe there is a name for what you are describing but unfortunately I am unable to think of it. Possibly, "cluttering"? (Yes, that is a real term )

I am very interested in this. I am new to these forums and this is the only post that I could find that deals with this.

My son is exactly as the OP said. He talks fast as if his brain is going faster than his mouth. It is very frustrating to say the least.

Anybody else have any info or feelings on this?

Thanks so much, Melissa

Speech is sometimes difficult for me too. Sometimes when I speak things come out very fragmented. I have a difficult time telling stories to people. My brother has the same problem. We both get overwhelmed when having to describe a series of events. Although imagining the events comes easily, verbally describing them is very difficult. Details are often missed and scentences don't flow.

Therapy

Last time, my therapist has been working on my storytelling problems. I often tell a story but missed some important information so I went back and forth and the people that listen doesn't have a clue what my point is. I just go on and on. She asked me to think about a story through and then tell it to her so that we could work on it. It was fun.

re:#6

Mom mother does that. (I am convinced she has ADD, or some sort of brain condition that worsens under stress.)

Starting a storyin the middle, or forgetting VITAL details can really mess things up, and create a crisis.

She had ADD testing, but they moreso seemed to make light of her symptoms, than see that her confusional statements ("Confabulation"; making things up -- but it's not lying) were SYMPTOMS of whatever is wrong with her.

The Testers did not allow family/friends to contribute, or I would have been able to give them important information.

Very frustrating.

Yes.. I actually have become frustrated and angry during long conversations because talking is so...inefficient. When I speak a sentence, I'm done "saying" it in my mind by the time I've actually verbalized the first 2 words. After that point it's like my brain is idly waiting for me to get done talking. It's not a problem for brief conversations, but it builds up after a while.

It's more like a 'movie reel', going on in my mind, Meadd.

I *see*, all probable outcomes/variables, of whatever I'm 'thinking' about, all at the same time.

That's why when someone asks me a question- I have A,B,C,D and sometimes E (movies) going on all at once, and I can't give an answer immediately.

The best I can do, is choose one, fast.

But yeah...movie reels.

I never knew!

When I speak or have to retell something I seem to always get muddled up. I then I end up retelling something and then losing myself and my audience, it drives me crazy so I have a hard time sometimes speaking up in class. But then there are sometimes when I cannot wait to speak and almost interrupt the teacher, because if I don't say it then it will be gone. I also forget details too a lot it drives my family mad. I always thought that this way of thinking was just me that I thought in this weird way and that I need to work harder to stop it but I never can stop it UGH.
