brain won't stop thinking

What is it called when your brain won't shut off, you keep thinking of several things at one time and become literally mentally exhausted?

The doctor said she's trained her brain to do this and gave her medication to teach it to shut off again. She's not depressed and doesn't have bipolar.<p>[This message has been edited by murray1987 (edited 09-11-2002).]

Hello and welcome. <IMG SRC="">
I'm not sure I understand, can you elaborate? And are you speaking about someone other than yourself, it sounds like it? Need a little more info in order to try and help.

Hi, see my post on HYPOMANIA. It causes your mind to race all the time among other things.

Here is a non-commercial
<A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A>

(IF this doesn't show up just do a search on hypomania.

See if you identify with any of the other symptoms and if so, talk to your doctor about it.

Re: brain won't stop thinking

That's my boyfriend's post im pretty sure...If he has nothing to distract him, he keeps thinking and can't stop. It gets to the point where he thinks about several different bad things that could happen to him and he gets depressed. It just won't stop. He can't sleep most nights.
