User :   I've been having difficulties in processing information and putting them into words lately. I know what I wanted to say, but always ended up saying something that was not exactly what I had in mind, but had similarities such as synonyms and could even describe the opposite of what I meant, just to get to the point. E.g. "I couldn't find the paper which they give you after you pay at stores, like bills in restaurant." In this sentence, I was looking for a receipt. It is now getting worst. Do I have a disorder or something?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read
User :   Thanks.
Doctor :   what is your age ?
User :   21
