Distraction

I’m incredibly sick, and almost all my work is at a complete standstill.

However, during the few hours in which the fever has broken, I’ve been able to rally myself to do a bit of recording. Practicing, playing, and recording guitar these past few days (when I can stand to do so) almost gives me back my health. It’s an all-encompassing distraction. When I’m focused on recording, something in the brain must override whatever part is telling me that I’m unwell. I’m certainly still aware of my illness, but I lose its nasty effects. So, I suppose it can be beneficial to find major distractors and exploit them for personal gain.
