Many of us feel embarrassed and find dealing with these symptoms quite difficult especially when meeting new people or being under stressful situations. Try to relax and put everyone at ease. Be frank and open that it’s part of your illness. Tell them you are great at Charades and get them to join in guessing the word, because you will be able to describe the word perfectly, you just can’t find it, but if you relax it will come to you.
One great piece of advice is if you have lost your mobile and you are talking to someone on the phone while you are trying to find it, it’s most likely in your hand!
