If I had an off-switch for my brain I would be so happy. My brain will never stop. It's never quiet. Most of the time it repeats the same things (a lot of it negative). I can repeat positive affirmations, try to read, watch tv, eft, nothing stops it. It's gotten so much worse since I got sick. Meditating is horrible. I think about all the things that I need to do, or something random always pops in my head. Really weird things. I've tried classes on quieting the mind, nothing. I can't even concentrate on my breathing or a mantra. What can I do to stop this? Any suggestions helpful! I remember dating my husband and asked him a couple of times, "What are you thinking about?" And he was always like, "Nothing." I was like how is that possible?
