My goodness, how I relate to the rumination and racing thoughts. And yes, how frustrating, like -"Oh, you mean just stop doing that? Wow, why didn't I think of that?!" Please excuse my sarcasm, I suppose I relate to the frustration. I read some nice suggestions. I find the writing very helpful, especially when upset or thinking about what I must do, so to get out of my head and on paper is helpful. Sometimes though I've had to make a real effort to just focus on breathing to the exclusion of all else. Sometimes I'll try to visualize either blank paper or somewhere nice. I guess there's something terrifying about how out of control one can feel-hence the catastrophizing-imagining the worst so it doesn't take you by surprise. I also can't dismiss the help that the meds have given to just dampen some of the "internal noise"
