    and hugs to everyone who posted. It just brought tears to my eyes to read what you have to suffer.
    I do that same thing - time to go to sleep and my mind starts going over every embarrassing and wrong thing I've ever done.
    I've been able to stop those thoughts either by counting or by showing compassion to myself.
    Sometimes my brain lets up on this process and I don't have these thoughts for long periods of time.
    Sometimes I think I'll tell a therapist all my secrets and she'll help me to let go of them.
    I'm "only" an anxious person, too.
    Thanks for the info about Daniel Siegel -  I'm going to look him up.
