Earworms
« on: October 11, 2019, 12:28:36 am »
Why does everything I read and watch repeat in my head over and over?

Videos I watch, books I read, and conversations I have or imagine having play over and over like a broken record. 

I've had this symptom for nearly 8 months straight now.  All day everyday.  I feel like I am going insane.

Years ago I read Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks in which he mentions that chewing can disrupt earworks so you could try that.
Not sure will help in disordered WD brain though.
