As I stated a couple of posts ago, life with anxiety and depression mean that sometimes “regular” life gets to take a backseat to the issues. When things are extra rough, it makes it hard to do anything “productive” including reading. Especially if I’m trying to read something for review purposes since that requires more concentration. I try to pay attention to more details when I’m reading to review. If I’m reading for pleasure, it’s often something I’ll read more than once so if I miss a detail the first time around, I’ll catch it eventually (and if it’s a mystery, I’ll probably go “D’oh!” because it’ll be an important clue to solving the crime!).
Thankfully, an adjustment of medications and some new techniques for dealing with panic attacks has helped and I’m back to reading my review books. I’m hoping to have at least one finished by the end of the weekend, but I’m trying not to push myself too hard. I don’t want to have another meltdown and end up not able to really read and comprehend things again.
I’m happy things are getting back on track again and hope to have a new review post by the beginning of next week for you all!
Have a great weekend!
