I have found literature to be one of the best ways I can maintain my PTSD symptoms. Reading provides me with something to relate to and feel reassured by, but also to find comfort in. I found out last year this technique had a name - bibliotherapy - and it has become the focus of some of my Hubs and my website (www.therapythroughtolstoy.com). Are there any books that have helped you through a tough time, or improved your sense of wellbeing? For me... PTSD: "Ulysses" by Tennyson Low mood: The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick Need for solitude: Walden by Henry David Thoreau

What a difficult childhood, Im sorry you had to go thru that.
Thanks for your answer, EJ. I also found books so comforting when my parents divorced and my mood was low. A book with a character that you can relate to who perseveres through hardship is so motivating.
Thank you, Beth. It is very motivating.
