Living with anxiety is a daily battle and sometimes I wonder if it’d ever go away. It gets worse at night when one is not allowed to sleep even though one tries to count his each breath and sometimes the number is astonishing to that someone. Once it crossed 300 breathes and after that I lost the count. Well, I have read some books and reviewed a few here which do talk anxiety especially, Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive, and if you consider Syliva Plath’s Bell Jar, a book wholesomely written by an anxious person.
It causes me to spend more time with it, and less time with what I like to do. I end up wasting a lot of time due to it, less reading, less writing, not enough focus while working but someday I will have my revenge, I hope. Anxiety causes me to sleep sometimes too, but after the sleep, tiredness is often the result. Also, too much of caffeine never helps but increases the level of anxieties inside me. There are many ways of coping with this little bastard, and one way is to read a comforting book.
So I ask you guys, which books have helped yourself managing the anxiety. Share with me.
