    Never happen to me
    What I experienced sometimes... I read too much and continuously for hours on top of that it was a stimulating novel that have a lot of dramas and crying
    After this, my head get dizzy so badly, bcs of lack of water and lack of sleep
    In the end I'm somewhat fainted on bed and sleep for a day. if it wasn't for someone in my family woke me up, I probably keep sleeping....

    Not in the sense that i dont read anymore but I tend to get too focused and lose sense of time. I have veen late to school, work and meetings or even forgotten to sleep.

    Unfortunately my defense mechanism is faulty. I can go 40 hours before collapsing

    If I abuse myself into reading too much a migraine will kick in and in it's fury I will tremble and takes pill and sleep for several hours and I will need to wrap my eyes in a blindfold so no light will cause me pain and a bag of ice to help numb the pain and some tiger balm to help with the pain.

    Fear heavy foods I will as they will make me puke and in turn increase the headache and these migraine will last 72 hours until I have taken enough pills to make the nightmare go away. XD

    So yea I limit how much I read and make sure to properly eat on time and sleep when I need it or the fury of migraine will seek me out for another 72 hours of nightmarish pain.

    I don't know about others, but after having binge read MTL for the first time, I was extremely confused when I came across a properly written comment to the point that I sat for minutes trying to decipher what the actual fuck was I reading even though the comment was a perfectly articulated review of a novel.

    Have I ever read too much? Sure! The who, what, where, when, why, and how of that is debatable, though.

    For me, reading does not happen much, because this is my hobby)) Now I am starting to teach my son to read, because reading is also very important for children. I found an interesting and detailed confirmation of this https://letstel.net/blog. Now we read with him quite a bit a day, but this is already yielding results.

    Before I reach that point, my eyes start refusing to see. Like, I'm actually worried. I should go back to paperback.

    This is something I learned from my mom. you can read a book without actually reading it.

    Essentially, you can look at the words on the page and just read a sentence. Thats just regular old reading. you dont understand anything that youre reading and your mind isnt truly focused on what yorue reading. Real reading is where your actual involved with the words on the page. you can imagine whats happening in your mind.

    shit like that.

    Sometimes when I’m exhausted and reading(usually during a binge reading), my brain reads the words but I can’t comprehend the meaning. I zone out while reading, and only after like 2-3 paragraphs I realize I had no idea what was happening so I have to go back and reread it. Sometimes I contemplate life while I read, so I just read the words but also not understand what happened soo reread again.

    Is that true? I mean I read alot, alooot more..
    That the only time I'm not reading is while sleeping and taking a bath, even while shiting I'm still reading. xD is it really bad for the brain? I mean for the eyes yes, coz I think my eyes are getting blurry and blurry.
