That usually happens with me.. What it is with me though is if i have a song in mind, and for whatever the reason is but i cant seem to get it out of my head.. What i do is i actually play the song or listen to it out loud other then thinking of it.. And it goes away. It clears my mind.. Well hope it helps..
I'll do that too sometimes....but what I do when it just won't leave me alone....I grab a book that I've been reading and read for awhile, that usually puts me right to sleep. Or, I'll get up and watch TV for a few minutes. Good Luck, I know it can be very frustrating.
This happens alot with me, I now have to keep the tv on, to stop my racing thoughts and songs that just stay around, it works somewhat for me, I leave it on cartoons, and turn the volume down, when that doesn't work I jot things down on a notepad, this help free my mind enough to sleep, and if all else fails, AMBIEN works wonders
I pray until I run out of things to pray about.
My goodness don't tell me, its one of the horrible things i had gone thru.... Well i did all i could to get it off my mind but even COUNTING SHEEPS WHICH I TRIED HAHAAH didn't work. So eventually ended up seeing the morning light and cursed myself for listening to the songs. :)
What I do is focus on the silence around me. It takes some practice, But be patient and it will work.
This happens to me mostly at night.Sometimes this works.Close your eyes and concentrate on SLOWLY deep breathing.Think '-Breath in breath out'-this helps prevent the song from seeping back in. Sometimes this helps me.Good luck!
