Racing thoughts are normal for me. They’re there whether I’m depressed or manic. My mind has been going more than normal. There’s just too much on my mind at any given time. I’m having a hard time comprehending what other people are saying during conversations. It feels as if my husband thinks I’m not paying attention because I keep asking him to repeat himself. I am paying attention; it’s just hard to listen to only one voice when there are so many going on in my head.

I can’t get my mind to stop. I would even be okay with my thoughts just slowing down, but I can’t seem to get that to happen either. Maybe this is something that can be handled with medication, as if I’m not already on enough pills. I see my psychiatrist in a week, maybe I should make a list of everything I want to talk to him about.

  1. Try slow breathing meditation practice. Sit in a quiet place, tv off, and force yourself to breath only 6-10 breaths a minute. This is hard to do… it takes all of your minds effort to control an autonomic body function. Basically it empties your mind. It’s okay to not do it perfectly… I often found myself forgetting and thinking about other things… the process of returning to the slow breathing clears out all other thoughts again.
