have you ever been in the middle of typing a discussion, and thought of something else to discuss and when you went to start a new discussion, you completely forgot what it was you were going to discussion? I just did that, I thought I had a great discussion, then I totally forgot what it was. Has something like this ever happened to you?

Hi there sudalunts! This happened to me several times already. Like, I do have a ready topic in mind and I even have started typing the title. Then suddenly, I go like "What was that again?" or "What was I suppose to discuss?". Surprisingly, the idea just come back and I just go on typing. In short, I do not really forget it completely.

Okay, I get it, you have a semi brain freeze All jokes aside, at least you do finally regain your thoughts and am able to carry on. My thought just escaped me, and I still have not recaptured it. Thanks for responding, I got a chuckle out of your response

Yeah, I have also experienced brain freeze, especially when I am talking about or typing something. It is very strange to have this happen. I know that this is very normal for humans from the angle of psychology. It is called instant forgetfulness. But it will usually come back if we think about it or it will come back naturally after some time. Thank you for your discussion, friend.

Yes, I get brain freezes at all times, when I am posting a discussion, or even replying to a discusson. But then I do the same thing in everyday life, I will go around the house doing something and forget what I was doing, so this is nothing unusual to me, I just have a bad memory, and get distracted very easily. and the older that I get the worse it seems to get.But it eventually comes back to me, it just takes some time.
