Yeah. I know it's not the worst problem in the world. And it's not all of the time. I have kind of struggled watching movies at home since the beginning of COVID/spring 2020.
Like today, I'm anxious while trying to watch The Eternals on Disney+ tonight. I'm going to have to stop tonight after watching only 20+ minutes. Trying and failing to enjoy it but absolutely am having a hard time focussing.
As you can see, I've gone to the movie theater 33 times last year
. Yes. I've had several disappointing experiences last year at the movies and by the halfway point of the West Side Story reboot, I was getting a bit antsy. But I never got anxious. I may have been a little uncomfortable being ~ stuffy and mildly overheated wearing a facemask in the movie theater with poor AC but NEVER panic attack anxiety.
Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop (2020) and The Mitchells vs the Machines (2021) were two great Netflix movies I didn't struggle watching thankfully. I guess I have to break up watching movies over the period of two to three days. It's frustrating and I guess I should address this the next time I have A VA appointment.
As I suspect, most people who know me on a2k and the real world, know me as a cinephile. I love movies. They are my raison d'etre
