I suffer from anxiety and depression. I keep having these few minute long incidents where I get stuck with a thought repeating over and over in my head. It is a question which I then answer and then the question and answer process keeps repeating. I realize what I am doing and freak out thinking I will be stuck in this mode of thought forever. After a few minutes,it stops but I am usually incredibly upset and mentally exhausted after. This started about a year ago.
