... unable to find it. Hopefully someone out there can help me. Here goes: is their a medical tirm for when your mind is constantley thinking? ( it will be about anything and everything, a non stop three ring circus in my head and its worse at night) if anyone knows about this, what can be done for it? If anything. I'm on 50mg of Trazodone and 1mg of Ativan 4x's a day. They do help, but not enough. Any thoughts on this is so appreciated. Taylor
The restless mind requires training. Through learning relaxation exercises for the mind or meditation, you can retrain your mind to better filter your thoughts. You can learn to accept those you wish and reject those you don't want. Investigating tools for training the mind would be beneficial such as can be found at successconsciousness.com.
Dear taylor tu tu,
I am no doctor, and by no means an expert and wouldn't try to give you a medical term for whats going on. I know I experience the same thing as you. My mind races too. And especially at night. I cant seem to shut the thing off. I was diagnosed with ADHD. That doesn't mean that is what you have. I'm just saying it was for me. I couldn't slow down for the life of me. Not just my thinking, but my actions and everything. I couldn't complete tasks or stay focused for the life of me. Crazy huh? Well it was driving me crazy until I found out what was wrong. It could be several things. And Laurie gave you some good advise too. I hope you can find some answers, and believe me, I know how frusturating it is to try and slow your mind down. And yourself too. But it can be done. I wish you all the best. Hang in there. Ruth
