I have this weird "habit" recently. Each time I think of a song, it keeps playing in my mind and I can't stop it. It is bothering me so much. Can anyone explain this to me? Have been taking citalopram and mirtazapine for 3 days now. Will this stop? I don't like it. Thank you.

      Maybe. Thank you anyway for the reply. I just hate it. I spent all day thinking from one song to another. I don't like it. Will this ever go away? I felt like God is punishing me for having this anxiety and depression.

    Hi Ian

    Yes yommymommy is right, it's probably because you're anxious.

    When we're ill with depression and/or anxiety, our minds go into overdrive and our thoughts race.  This makes our mind tired, and hence any strange weird, frightening thoughts stick to a tired mind.  I expect that's what's happening to songs you hear - because your mind is already tired, the song will stick and bounce around in your mind.  Everyone often hears a song, and then find themselves singing it all day which gets annoying, but I suspect as your mind is tired its doing it all the more.

    Dont worry, it will pass in time as you begin to heal.  Your mind will once again feel less cloudy and you won't have thoughts, songs etc clinging.

      I hope so katecogs.. I am not hearing songs, I am playing songs in my mind. And thoughts if my mistakes in the past starts to cling again. How long will I endure this? I wish God would just heal me but it seems God hates me.

    Ha ha nice one Ian & thanks for posting because thought it was just me that this song stuck in head thing happened to.

    Can assure you it will pass but can take a while for side effects such as this to calm down & disappear.

    Pick a song with somebody fit in it like Beyoncé !

    Hi Ian, don't worry, as the others have said, it will go away. With me it wasn't only a song, it was a word that would go round and round in my head. I used to worry so much about it, that it only got worse. In the end, I started to accept that it was a part of me, and with that acceptance, it simply vanished. And don't worry, God won't punish you for being ill. With regards to books, can you get amazon where you are, if you can, you should be able to get ebooks.Try not to worry. Best regards, Geoff.

    Hi Ian, yes insomnia can be a pain, I've suffered with it for years. What I did was come up with a coping strategy that worked for me. If you can't sleep, get up and have a read, have a warm drinkand maybe a biscuit. Don't drink caffeine after midday. Don't fight it and try not to get frustrated. Easier said than done I know. You can't force yourself to sleep. Be kind to yourself, and try to relax, it will all fall into place in the end, it will take time, butwe are all here for you and always remember, you're never alone Best regards, Geoff.

      Thank you Geoff.. That's good for you. What worry me is that I only have short time for sleeping and I don't want to spend it tossing and turning. Work ends at 10 pm and starts at 8 am.

    That's anxiety hunni to be honest it makes you think your cracking up.. The brains a powerful thing and sometimes not for the best reasons..anxiety brings out all sorts of symptoms and OCD type thoughts is 1 of them.. Your worried about it therefore you think of that song more it's a vicious circle.. You actually do it when your functioning normally but the difference is your not scared or worried about it.. All you have to remember is anxiety is fed by fear kill the fear you kill the anxiety xxx
