    Losing train of thought while speaking

    Does this happen to anyone else? This generally happens when I'm really excited about something. But when I start talking, ironically, I lose my train of thought and forget the entire point I was trying to make.

    Man do I hate it when that happens, makes me feel like a fool everytime. Usually only occurs when I'm excited as well.

    Yes. If I'm somehow briefly interrupted, or if I'm excited about the topic. Sometimes for no reason. I then have to re-run the conversation in my head to try to simulate the train of thoughts again.

    I lose my train of thought while I'm thinking.

    Look, with that many trains going around no sane person can be expected to keep track of a single one.

    Sometime when I'm... wait what are we talking about again? :P

    Anyway It doesn't usually happen when speaking, it happens a lot when I'm thinking, I'll get distracted into something else and forgot my original thought.

    Aaaallll the time! My mind moves at a different pace than my words, by the time I'm half way through a sentence my mind will have already been moved on to the next branch of thought and before I know it the only realization that remains is, "where the fuck am I?"

    Yes. All the time. And in some cases, I'll go on a tangent and then not remember what I was talking about earlier.

    (By the way, this is how I know who my friends are: they're the ones who remember what I was talking about before I wandered off on a tangent).

    Happens all the time to me or I'll forget a common word for a short time. I think it's because I often think in pictures or "movies" often ignoring the actual words that represent the images to myself so translating the mental image to another person sometimes creates a temporary mental block.
