Why does my mind race like this?
It’s not the normal, thinking over tons of things. It usually happened when I more of an insomniac, I would be trying to sleep and all of the sudden I start thinking a thousand, a hundred things, all at once, usually mentally ‘hearing’ these thoughts in a different voice, and in an entirely different language. The voices are always frantic, whispering(?), and just. I don’t know. It freaks me out.
It usually gives me a bit of an anxiety attack, because it can get so bad in my head that I start to think I’m actually hearing things. I can’t concentrate or focus or even relax and I get a horrible headache (though I’m not sure if it’s due to whatever is happening to me or because of the anxiety I get because of it). Then it just disappears almost as quickly as it came upon me.
But these episodes can happen once every two/three months or even less frequent than that, and last from 30 minutes to like two hours.
Why would this happen? I understand why I’d be a bit paranoid if I haven’t slept in a while, but what if I am getting a normal amount of sleep? Is this something I should be seriously concerned about? Get checked out? I don’t think I’m crazy or schizophrenic. Not on any medication, either. x)
