re: NEED HELP
Dear Doc i would like to know whether you can assist me with the following issue. I am a varsity student and when asked a question i find it extremely difficult to answer. The same happens for eg when i would want to consult a lecturer which i almost never do as i am aware of myself i you understand what i mean.

To sum up i get disoriented and unable to speak.

Regards
