@vbampton: Glad that I'm not alone with the experience and that it's solvable.
What do you mean by brain dumps - do you have scheduled time periods when you go through your brain and empty it? My understanding was that one should jot down everything right when it pops up, so brain dumps seem redundant, since I should already have everything written down. Or did I get this part of GTD wrong?
Writing it down when it pops up is great GTD practice. But also, whenever you're feeling anxious, try writing down - stream of conciousness - everything that's on your mind. You'll probably find you write down a lot of stuff that's already on your lists, and that's fine. That'll decrease over time, and if it doesn't, it might mean there's more to think about on those particular topics in order to get them off your mind. You might also discover a few other things that aren't currently on your lists. I think David usually calls it a mindsweep.
