As a confirmed member of the wake-up-several-times-a-night club, I know exactly what you mean. My mind, too, spins obsessively on topics that it really doesn't need to. The only way to shut it down is to have something else for it to pay attention to. I listen to Coast to Coast AM to fall asleep (but I really miss Art Bell). If it's a particularly bad night (or C2C is discussing something I'm not interested in), I have a bunch of old time radio shows on CD that I pop in. I also have readings from Librivox.org to listen to.
If I'm still awake after an hour of listening to one of the above, I get up and make a cup of Sweet Dreams herbal tea. I sometimes have this before I go to bed if I'm feeling tense. This usually, but not always, works.
Good luck!
