Greetings everyone, I wanted to share my experience with dealing with compulsive rumination at the age of 51. It has been a challenging road, but I have found some strategies that have helped me regain control of my thoughts. Therapy has been a valuable tool in helping me understand the root of my rumination and develop healthy coping mechanisms. Additionally, practicing mindfulness and staying physically active have been crucial in quieting the constant chatter in my mind. It’s important to remember that it’s okay to seek help and that you are not alone in this struggle. There is hope and healing on the other side. I encourage anyone else going through similar challenges to seek support and know that it is possible to overcome compulsive rumination.
