    When you have to stay home and not be out in public

    What do you do to keep yourself busy, hobby? TV? How do you keep from going stir crazy?

      I am a loner and I love staying at home. I don't watch much TV, but I do lots of stuff on the computer. I have about burned myself out on learning about essential oils - I took several different certification classes ... I'm currently neck-deep into several Bible Studies (unfortunately, I have not learned the art of NOT overdoing whatever my current passion is) ...

      I read, I play on the computer, sometimes I make myself do a little cleaning, I write blogs, I don't as much now as I did when I was first diagnosed, but I love taking pictures and then maybe turning them into a book ... my to do list is usually not even close to being completed when the day ends ...

      If you like to do arts and crafts, those will keep you busy - lap quilts to share or crocheted or knitted hats ... ???

      I've taken up learning to watercolor. And I bought a Kindle and subscribe to a couple of daily services where books are either free or low-cost.

      I loved working puzzles, or doing word puzzles. I learned a lot of new new things watching youtube. I learned new crochet stitches, how to paint using a new medium, different tricks for new software that I have. Like how to do different things in word and excel. I even watched old cartoons from when I was younger or when my children were younger.

      It was winter when I had to stay home. So I worked on crochet projects and watched a lot of tv. I didn't really care that I had to be home and not out in crowds. Not a fan of snow and cold.
      Watched Big Bang Theory, and old sit coms like Brady bunch, Andy Griffen, and other old shows.
      Except for doctor appointments and hospital stays, I was home from December through March. I wasn't allowed to go to church, so I had ministers of communion come to the house. And my friends were aware of my situation and would stay away if they had a cold. It was rough.
