Sorry you are having such a hard time, rain! Yoga would probably help to quiet your brain down. I find that when I'm doing poorly that I'm usually holding my breath (and clenching my fists, or wringing my hands like Aunty Em in the Wizard Of Oz). Phsyical acitivity really does release that tension we are storing up in our bodies when we're overly stressed.
On another thread I mentioned I have a "white noise" machine - I use it quite often to calm my thoughts. Instead of having the stereo or the tv on in the background, I put on a water-y noise or wind chimes, very softly. The machine was a good investment for me. They sell them at pharmacies these days.
I too don't like to increase my anti-anxiety medication because it makes me so thick-headed.
Let us know how you are doing today - and make an appointment maybe with your doctor to let him know you're not doing as well as you thought?
