We were talking about what we wanted to do that would be relaxing and Matty said he wanted to watch horror movies tonight!! You see, Matty actually finds them relaxing and calming!! Yep. Relaxing and calming. He said they help focus his mind and somehow help him "organize" his emotions so they're not all over the place like they get sometimes when his med is wearing off at night. Thank goodness he's not all that keen on recent horror titles, because some of those are too scary and make my anxiety go on high alert. That one about the Chain Saw Massacre and the Elm Street Nightmare are completely off the list!
He loves watching some of the classic ones like, Nosferatu, made in 1922, or even the Hitchcock film, Psycho, which I guess is horror/suspense.
I'm still trying to come up with some titles I might find relaxing. I think I might be in the mood for a romantic comedy or even something classic like To Have and Have Not with Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart. I was reading about the real life love affair between those two. And it might be a nice way to pay tribute to Ms. Bacall's life with the news of her death this week.
