Stop the boredom
As chronic pain patients, it can become very difficult and discouraging to find activities that we are still able to do physically or mentally let alone that we are able to enjoy. When I was first diagnosed, I struggled deeply when trying to find things that could help take my mind off the pain and redundant nature of bathroom breaks, intermittent depression, and a boring diet. Over the years, I have found a myriad of different websites and other at home activities to help distract me when I’m having a bad day and am unable to leave the house or act like a real person in the outside world. I realize that not all of these options will work for everyone …so please don’t email me every five seconds about how much “that site sucks” or why you don’t think the content on another site is inappropriate. I trust that you all can sort out what you like and what you don’t without making it a “meh” experience for anyone else. Do ya like my little “*tsk tsk, I shall shake my finger at you” warning? Me too! Anyway, all I aim to do here is at least give some starting options for those of you on the path of finding your own activities and entertainment. I’m sure the internet has enough options for all types of people and personalities. I mean, I’ve heard that it’s a really big place that literally has “All the things”. Sarcasm rant over. Here’s a list of some of my favorite distractions. They are broken up into categories for organizational sake! It’s up to each of you to find which work best for you and your current situation. I’ll leave the comment section open so that you can post any sites or activities that aren’t listed here and will update periodically to keep us up to date on the ever growing technological world!
