I think all of the "problems" I have with the music thing is simply a conundrum with music MEMORY circuits (involving the temporal lobe) and how that plays with short-term and long-term memory (of music). The music I "hear" (most often anyhow) is stuff that I have been listening to recently. I am defintely a music freak of sorts-I like to buy CD's every week and I listen to much more music played much louder than most people do (and I want NEW music every week). I also think it relates to PTSD-like brain chemistry in some way. When I am sleep-deprived, stressed, hypomanic, I have trouble terminating unneeded recent memories and they "echo" in my consciousness far longer than needed (music echoes if that is what I have been involved in). I quit taking Wellbutrin mainly because I would wake in the middle of the night at times and I would be dreaming about completing a technical paper I had not finished yet. I liken it to being in a very large canyon or cave that sound doesn't dampen well in. That's it-it is a matter of the qualitative ways that memories (generally musical ones-occasionally left-brained ruminative thoughts), FAIL to decay and disappear like most people experience.
