Some people talk about comfort foods… well I have ‘good reads’. Those books you can just sink into on a bad day and take your worries away. That and I read all the time with migraines (well not extremely acute ones, but all the other ones) and it lets me escape from that constant affliction for a bit. The world is a very cruel place for people with chronic pain… it is all about masking the pain while trying to function until you no longer even comprehend why you are doing so. And if I can escape for a moment into another world where that isn’t the case, whether it is a world I have created in my own writing or one in a book I read, then at least I have some peace.
