    Just breath slowly real slow and think of a place like beach or anywhere that is calm and peaceful slow breaths Look around and see where you are okay get grounded and just breath slowly in and out slowly you will slow your thoughts down. take care

    Its completely random...sometimes it'll be triggered by me going to bed earlier than normal, like I know I need to go to bed but I still have things I want or need to do that will stay on my mind.

    The thing that sometimes helps me is the ipod...unfortunately I forgot I had left it out in my car last night, so I was running laps around my house last night looking for it...I think I found it minutes before I felt like I needed to literally rip my brain out, so a big *phew* there.

    The best way I can think to describe the feeling is a complete 100% inability to focus on anything, no matter how hard I try. I am normally a super-focused person, so that makes this especially frightening for me...kind of like the fear of riding that big roller-coaster hill at a theme park, but without the reassuring level out at the the end...just falling and falling and falling.
