Problems in getting words out

Posted by lotsofpain @lotsofpain, Jul 11, 2021

I have noticed a slightly developing tendency to have difficulty getting what i am thinking actually into words. Its very hard to describe not a stammer, words slightly garbled words maybe. . just happens sometimes. doesn't seem to coincide with anything else though I have been a bit unpredictably breatlhess on occasions and get labynthitis sometimes
