Hi there! Thank you for reaching out. It seems like you have developed anxiety. If these thoughts are about a particular subject, then you have specific anxiety. However, it sounds to me like you have generalized anxiety where random thoughts and incidents plague the mind. One thought leads to another, and then the next and the next. The thoughts never stop and you end up feeling exhausted by the end of the day. Does that sound like you? If yes, worry not (no pun intended), for you are not alone. Generalized anxiety is a very common problem especially in women. I have some questions for you to think about and some suggestions to work on.
