Do any of you experience a wierd sense of guilt when you spend a whole day reading for sheer pleasure without working on you own stuff at all?

It's very odd- I'm hoping this is a one time deal... the guilt part I mean Wink

Yes, but since I don't work on my own stuff anyway it's just guilt for guilts sake.

Regina,
You poor thing. You need to start by admitting you have a problem. Then we can work on helping you. I would like to let you know that there is life outside of books. I'm not 100% sure yet but that's what they tell me at R.A. I'm sure they have a support group in your area. I would love to be your sponsor. For now I want you to just try to hang in there. Try putting the book down between chapters, if only for a moment. Eventually, though you may not be able to stop, you can bring it under control. And don't be ashamed. It is a disease. Though not usually curable it can be suppressed so you can function as a normal human being. As to the guilt, just consider it an early warning sign. It may pass but if it does you will know you are lost forever.
