My Thoughts Are Like The Energizer Bunny....

They just keep going and going and going.  I've actually become a big film buff just so I can have an hour or two to stop thinking. I can watch a film and get "lost" in another reality for ahwile.  I've started reading novels again as well. Im kinda glad to find out Im not the only one with this problem.

no you're definetly not alone..the ramblings in my head keep me up at night :(

Uh meditation, I haven't done that since I wa in High School. Maybe I'll give it a try again, thanks for your comment

Lots of us "intellectualize", live in our heads primarily, because emotions are often confusing and painful. I think we often "think too much" so as to not feel so strongly. I suspect we are Highly Sensitive People (like Elaine Aron wrote about). 12 step programs call the condition "loud head"! LOL! I think it is a funny term. I have a tiny small book called The Quiet Mind which is christian-oriented metaphysics that I use to quiet my mind, along with meditation (which is hard to achieve with an Energizer Bunny mind). Yes, you are so not the only one with this problem. I wonder if it is a form of low-grade chronic anxiety, a fear that something will happen outside our ability to deal with it, a state of constant preparedness (hyper-vigilance).
