Blanking out, freezing-Brain lock?

I was fired for having anxiety, stress (PTSD), depression and ADHD.  Now on Adderall, -big difference.  How do I explain what happens, how can I show a judge, court what happens to me when I “freak out?”  When I freak out, my mind goes blank, I cant think, reason, I just get angry, smart ass(how else to say this?), because I can’t think process info.  I understand this, what happens, ect, ect and I can control this better now (meditation) but it still happens under sever stress.  Its cost me a Postal job of almost 20 years.  I have appeals in, What can I do to control this better?


Same here I experienced the same when I was working at a top managerial post & during table talks and surprise presentations I used to go blank I often forgot words to complete my sentence .......

That happened to me one day while I was in court on the witness stand for my job.  I did not know it then but that was a symptom of my ADD.  That was several years ago but I still feel extreme embarrassment over it.
