What do you do to keep from going stir crazy?

Feb 12, 2016 10:52 AM

I'm curious as to what you all do to keep your mind occupied, especially when you're not feeling well. Sometimes, when I'm unable to function, i play games of solitaire or watch Netflix or Twitch to keep from going stir crazy!

YouTube, Facebook if I feel like it, music, my coloring book and colored pencils. I also have a canvas box either right on my nightstand or close by that has my stash in it with extra meds, etc so I don't have to go back and forth to the kitchen.

Netflix, YouTube, Reddit, playing videos games on our PS3, coloring, sudoku, friends come over and bring lunch. I'm in bed 20 hours out of the day so it gets boring especially because I'll only sleep a maximum of 4 hours of I'm lucky.

Reddit is pretty helpful, only if there is fresh stuff on the frontpage
