I have anxiety issues and PTSD and they always help calm down the Bad Thoughts™ (Also getting cuddles from my kitty and olanzopine, can’t forget those) Log in to Reply I daydream until I start to nightdream. I lay down in bed, and start imagining minor superpower scenarios. For example, what would happen if I could magically guess 4 out of 7 lotto numbers. It’s not enough money to retire, but it’s enough to help with cost of living. I spin my imagination to think about the implications. I imagine how conversations would go with the local shop when I’m coming in every friday to collect money from my winnings. I start to think about how I could potentially game the system by buying multiple tickets, and use my knowledge that each one has 4 correct numbers to guess the remaining 3 numbers. I think about how I could help my family or tip waiting staff with lotto tickets which are a guaranteed winner. I wonder how people’s lived be improved or made worse if I accidentally give them a ticket which has 4 guaranteed numbers, but the other 3 randomly end up correct too. — And I just keep letting my mind wonder through the various rabbit holes until I fall asleep. It never takes me more than 5-10 minutes to fall asleep. I can feel when it starts working because all my muscles suddenly relax. My breathing deepens. My hearing goes muted like I’m on an airplane that’s suddenly dipped in altitude. I get super comfortable and my body refuses to move.
