Suggest treatment for difficulty in communicating with people

I am losing my ability to speak and understand language. It is becoming harder and harder to understand people and be an active participant in social situations without being confused. My words are fumbled and don't come out the way I want to. I cannot construct long elaborate sentences anymore. I can't express myself like I used to as a child.

It has become harder to make decisions as well. I am extremely forgetful. I can't concentrate on anything, especially people's words. I have sleep problems.

I really don't know what to do. I can't function in my life because it is just too difficult to interact with people.

I also have social anxiety disorder, which may have been triggered by my fear of being unable to communicate and listen well causing me to avoid any social situation I can.

I really need help.

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. I am sorry to tell you that you are a victim of your own negative thinking. If you have social anxiety and stress in your life, then your current symptoms could be associated with them. Your problem could be your obsessive thinking. You know well 'Idle mind is devil's workshop'. Idle mind always goes towards negative thinking and in that process most of the thoughts become obsessive. Your problem clearly is obsession or obsessive thinking. From the given information, the above are almost a certainity. But You do need expert intervention for proper diagnosis and further treatment. .

You need counseling and psychotherapy. I shall provide you with the required counseling and psychotherapy techniques online, to overcome these problems. Please describe the whole problem in detail and post a direct question to me.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
