Boredom and loneliness when sick.


I feel so bored and lonely when Iím sick. Iíve finally advanced to knowing it wonít last forever. I donít wish I had a nursemaid or anything. I just noticed my depression really plays up when Iím sick because I donít feel like distracting with tv or reading. I donít know why Iím posting, maybe so I can laugh at myself later.

I know what you mean! I had pneumonia a few years ago and was never so sick in my life. I was lucky I was able to sit at my computer and amuse myself or I would have gone mad.

I'm not very good at relaxing to recuperate, it's more in my nature to get outdoors to soak up some sun and fresh air.

When I stopped drinking I figured there would be lots of emotions but one I wasn't prepared for was boredom. And getting sick was super boring. Hang in there, it gets better.

Yes I agree! A day or two of being alone for me is healthy. Outside of that, it's good for me to have contact.

Please know, we are here for you!
