Question by ILovePizza: Is there a mental disorder where you have repetitive thoughts and can’t focus on other things?
Things will replay in my mind over and over again. It’s just constant chaos and usually in a negative state. I’ll try to focus on something else like writing or exercising and will still feel the same way. I’ve been to several therapists but it hasn’t helped. I do know I have social anxiety. The thoughts are usually about what people have said about me in the past or how they have treated me. I’m hardly ever happy and when I try it usually lasts for a few seconds.

Sounds to me like you have low self esteem-which goes hand in hand with social anxiety too! Try reading some self help books to help improve your self esteem. I highly recommend overcoming low self esteem by Melanie Fennel as this has helped me loads. You can find it cheap on amazon or ebay and it explains why we develop low self esteem and there is a section in the back which gives you techniques and activities using CBT to help you.
Another thing you could try is hypnosis CD, there are ones for building self esteem but if anything it will give you a chance to relax and focus your thoughts on the music playing.
