Rayne...I do know exactly what you are describing. I have been wrestling for years with the feeling that certain thoughts just overtake my brain and I constantly dwell on them. It seems that everyday there is the same laundry list of stupid thoughts that keep repeating themselves. I may get flack for this post, but years ago I read a book by Jack (?) Dreyfuss (yeah, the same mutual fund guy), that talked about stopping overstimulation of certain neural pathways in the brain with the anti-epileptic drug Dilantin (phenytoin...sp?). Go on the Psychobabble search engine, as well as google (there is a website for the book he wrote). I used Dilantin and my mind near-instantly stopped the constant, repeating thoughts and brought me calm. However, I had a bad reaction to it (small % do) and broke out in a bad measles-like rash...if that had not happened I'm sure i'd still be using it.
Good luck, do a little investigation on it, and then speak to a doctor. You should be able to obtain it fairly easily.
Best wishes...Jotho
