It’s unbelievable how misinformed people, and especially doctors, are on this subject.
I also read almost obsessively as a child, albeit slowly, and never the books I was supposed to read for school. At one time I had a little gym bag just for the books I was reading, because I liked to read more than one at a time, switching back and forth between them, and would carry up to 8 of them with me. I did most of my reading at night before I went to sleep, or when I couldn’t sleep. Reading tires me out so it helps to settle me down at night.
Now that I’m older I find reading tires me even more. I often can’t get through more than 2 or 3 pages before I start to nod off. Like right now.REPORT ABUSE
