My brain won't stop monitoring every thought that comes into my head.  Does anyone have anything like this?

LOL, why do we constantly have to have thoughts? Couldn't we just have rest periods for our brains when we want?

I have meditated for ten years or so. I went on a seven day silent meditation retreat. During that I had the briefest period where my mind was quiet. It was great. It didn't last but a few seconds. That was after meditating for 8-10 hours for five days. You can have a rest period, you just have to work at it!  :)

Meta cognition. My worst symptom, ever! It's probably part of depersonalization, you feel like a passenger/guest in your own brain, like it's thinking on its own and you're just observing. You don't feel like you're in control. It's been like this for me for about 3 months now. I only know one person that has recovered from this, not many buddies post on this.
