Self-Care List: Distracting & Comforting

I've been thinking of ways to comfort and distract myself tonight, since my Twitter tweets are apparently invisible, or more probably nobody wants to talk to me when I'm like this. So here's what I've come up with

reading an engrossing fiction book, preferably by a familiar author

Things that won't help include taking a bath or shower since I'm bound to think about things while I'm in there and I don't want to think.

Right now I'm playing cards on the computer but that probably won't last much longer as the fatigue and pain (from sitting up and not sleeping) become too much for me.

I sometimes write things that I don't really mean or believe. These are not to be taken literally, nor as definitive statements about me or my beliefs. Thoughts and emotions are transient, and I reserve the right to change my mind, generalize, exaggerate, give strong opinions, or write other possibly offensive statements. I don't lie, but I may say something that's not true to check whether I believe it or not, or to make a point. Call it creative license. This is my blog, and do have the right to say what I want. I'm using it in creatively therapeutic ways. Whatever the reader may think of me and my words, please believe that my core intentions are always good and I never willingly hurt anyone.
