I've asked about this before, but I'm still struggling with it. I get extremely anxious while reading, especially longer stuff ie novels. I get anxious about my heartbeat and the physical sensations of anxiety and, though I constantly try to "accept" these sensations and try not to control them and bring my attention back to the reading, the anxiety just goes up and up. I've tried so many different things ... sticking with it, pacing, reading while walking, reading while deep breathing, reading aloud. Some of these things help a little bit, because they physically distract from the uncomfortable physical sensations. But none gets to the root cause. I'm just stuck in this loop. It's really confusing. My retention is still quite good, considering all this is going on, but the anxiety is maddening. I'd like to be able to enjoy reading again. Any suggestions? Can anybody explain to me what's going on here?
