ADD and Zoning Out katekite

Don't you just love that ADD? Mine's ADHD (plus narcolepsy) & I'm always aware when I zone out. In the middle of the sentence, my thoughts seem to gel & my 'speech button' can't be accessed. It always happens when I'm starting to slow down from my ADHD into narcoleptic drowsiness - my mind will still be working but my physical side will want to desparately sleep. Like you, I can sometimes pull up what I was saying - but most times, it's gone for good.

For me, it seems to have certain traits in common with sleep paralysis. My mind is still functioning but I can't seem to make my body respond - I don't just quit in the middle of the sentence but stare straight ahead unmoving. I have to force myself to snap out of it & if it's possible to do so, stumble off for my pillow. If not, it means the start of 15-45 minutes of long drawn-out yawning & fuzziness.
