I curl up in a warm bed with my Kindle, reading one of my many mystery novels until I feel relieved and relaxed enough to fall asleep for a little while with my trusty friend in my hand. I do this several times through out the night and sometimes during the day while reading just about anything.
I have some Chronic autoimmune health issues that leave me physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted. I am very aware how hard the Fight or Flight response is on my health, body and mind.
So this reading that I do is the one positive distraction that helps me the most to get a little relief from the anxiety and depression that I feel.
