Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Excess thoughts that wear you down and a feeling of loss of control affecting thoughts, feelings and ultimately actions with both positive and negative effects are a hallmark of schizophrenia. Though its a far shot to be diagnosing such a severe mental disorder based on one sentence alone, one should get a psychiatric consultation, just in case or at least a physician visit. Anxiety and depression can also lead to similar symptoms.

Wishing you best of health
