Years ago when I was struggling daily with chronic pain I found this book by Norman Cousins. He came down with some unknown illness and was hospitalized unable to walk for over a year. I think it took him several years to recover. His book is about his own healing and he discovered an innate wisdom in the body/mind. He was given large doses of vitamin C and began listening to comedy day in day out. All the best comedic tv shows and movies ( I forget when the book was written).
So, part of my healing strategy is to listen to comedy you tube videos and movies every day for at least 10-15 minutes.
Comedy has always been a saviour to me. As you can see, I like dark comedy. I like raunchy comedy. I like Chris Rock, Louis CK, Sarah Silverman, Little Britain, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and many more...
If you are offended by any of the comics, please pass them on. This is an experiment in joy and laughter. Try to listen and watch comedy every day. Check out that book by Norman Cousins. It took him several years to heal, but he did it and he did it through laughter!
I know many of us have many heavy things going on in our lives, prior to withdrawal and because of withdrawal.
Even if you are in the depths of darkness, let these guys and girls break you open so you can laugh hysterically :)
