I used to read books. I liked reading books. I have alot of books on my shelves that I have read. But since my illness I haven’t read a single book. I have tried a number of times. I can still read but the concentration just isn’t there anymore. I suppose this just another thing that I can’t do anymore. I used to read magazines but now I just flick through the pages and just look at the pictures. It is not worth buying them anymore. Instead now I listen to books which is much easier and helps me keep my mind off things I might not want to think about. Especially on the evil bus. I have found though that I can only listen to books that I have previously read. It is a concentration problem again. If my concentration goes, I still know what is happening in the story I am listening to. Audio books are expensive though. I would usually by second hand books. Audio books can be over £10. Luckily there was a sale after Christmas so I should be good for a while. Listening to books is a really good method if you are having problems getting to sleep. Like the bus listening to a book stops you thinking of all the bad things.
