    OCD Unwanted/intrusive Thoughts Distract Me.

    Every time I try to read something, ESPECIALLY if it's important, the unwanted, OCD thoughts pop up in my head like popcorn, & I get frustrated & feel like it's pointless to read.

    Blame Ep

    Before I discovered EP I was a regular at my local library - and now I only go once in a while!! I am reading a good book at the minute, I have been reading it for a few days but haven't got very far - EP's fault! Usually I would have finished by now as I am a very quick reader...

    Because of My New Job

    In my old job I got an hour lunch break every day, and I used to read during my break. Now it is expected that I work through my lunch. I hate that! It is messed up!!

    Haven't Read Anything This Year

    The funny thing is that I own a lot of books, and have about 20 of them in the waiting-to-be-read list. Have to get rid of most of them since they occupy a lot of space. I guess I read in the past to make me forget my loneliness, but now that I met my wife I don't need that...

    I Just Don't Enjoy It Anymore...

    I haven't finished a book since last December. People have recommended books to me, and I've tried reading them, but I just don't enjoy them enough to keep reading them. I've pretty much given up on reading because of it - there just aren't enough good books out there...

    Not As Much As Before

    Before I went to college, I got to read 3-7 books a week. But when I entered the university, I only got to read 1-3 books per semester. It was so sad. I missed reading so much. :( Now I see the books I've read before already have their last installments that I haven't read yet.
