How much do you have to do?
Do loads keeping busy is the key
It might help some. I think it mostly makes me tired. I don’t derive satisfaction from just being busy.
I have tons to do to keep me busy:
Visiting with friends
Playing with cat
Benedictine Oblate meetings
Legion of Mary meetings
Piano and Keyboard playing
My pdoc says that these are all the things that I do that keep me well.
I don’t have a ton to do but I don’t get bored often, either
I proofread our local paper
I help deliver it
I do school
I do housework
I do Lego Club
I watch movies in the evening
I go to the city for various and random reasons
I go to church
I have tea with the in-laws 2x per week
I have dinner with my parents 1x per week
I do a lot of research
I go with my husband on reporting assignments often
I post at schizophrenia.com
I write, rewrite and then rewrite some more
I complain about poor punctuation and bad grammar as well as bad context in advertising
I talk to my husband
I devise ways to keep the cats from ruining everything I own
I sleep about 2 hours longer than I “need” to each night
Not much. I think being busy is highly over rated.
I feel the same way from my negatives or somthing.
I basically have no choice.
