I also have been going to the gym 2-3 times a week which seems to help a bit. Really just trying to change whatever I can right now.

and yes to melatonin, it has been helping me get sleepy without weed or alcohol. My usual bedtime is like 3-4 but the last few nights I have been trying really hard to lie down by 1 or 2, pop a melatonin, read some Anna Karenina and listen to ASMR videos as I fall asleep

hot take: I hate audiobooks. I really do not like being read to, tbh. To fully immerse myself in a book I need to read it myself, at my own pace, and let my imagination fill in everything it possibly can. I like to stop and think about sentences, reread stuff, skip back to connect things mentally... having a book read to you is a two-dimensional experience in comparison, and sometimes really annoying to me like when people play audiobooks in the car

yeah i also stop, re-read, go a few pages back, inspect a sentence, etc etc

my first job fresh outta sound engineering school was recording audiobooks with TEH CELEBZ in Israel, aimed to be this interest-peaking project. it was the most bullshit fucking job and i hated it, and the boss was basically an aggro lunatic who was later really shitty to me, but i did get to work with one or two people i really appreciate so that was awesome (one of them being a dubbing artist who voiced all my favorite Disney movies and cartoons as a kid - major 'whoa' moment, haha).

AAAANYWAY so as somebody who had to listen to books being read way more that i would have liked to, my theory is that it's so fucking grating just because it's so incredibly 'incorrectly' different than the way your inner voice sounds when you read a book. there's such a jarring difference between the pacing and the tone and the nuances that make up 'correct' reading to you, that it makes listening to somebody else doing it for you an incredibly fruitful exercise in frustration.

my crazy ex had a beautiful speaking voice, like water being poured into a tall glass

she used to read poetry to me and it would dispel my anxiety immediately

I encouraged her to look into how to get paid to read audiobooks or even technical manuals or something for the visually impaired or literally anything like that, but she was too ill to make herself do that. Hers is the only voice I ever really enjoyed hearing read something out loud
