Depression can be so boring!!!


Tired Of Being Broke? Lose your Pov...
Tired Of Being Broke? Lose your Poverty Programming

Recommended Posts

In recent weeks, months... I've made a conscious effort not to make major social plans with friends, as quite frankly I don't know how I will be feeling later, tomorrow, and I am tired of always disappointing everyone by being 'flaky', when in reality it's less about flakiness and more about the fact that being bulimic and depressed means I'm constantly fighting things they don't see, and trying to socialise and appear normal on top of that can sometimes be extremely stressful...

In other words, the wrong breakfast can ruin my day. Why is everything sociable revolved around food anyway?

 

That's not the point of this thread though, my thing is right now, I am bored out of my mind... Have been surfing the web all day, and have visited read more random blogs than ever... Would really like a good friend to hang out with, because well I'm bored. It's really selfish of me to expect people to pop up when I'm bored, when I sometimes don't get out of bed to even meet them for coffee.. But still, I'm medicated enough to be mellow and now... I'm bored!

 

What do you do all by your lonesome?

What might help is to do the creative things you love (be it draw, write, etc...) in a public place (coffee shop, outdoors at a park) and strike up conversations randomly. There are many fascinating people with interesting stories to share that might spark a friendship or at the very least, add to your creative process.

 

Just a few thoughts..

I can understand your situation, I'm there right now (was there last night, too). I try to stay busy by doing something constructive, or at least something like a hobby. I might go to a driving range and hit some golf balls. Or go to a bookstore and find something interesting to read. Usually anything that gets you out of your home/apartment is usually better than anything you can do at home. Not that there aren't any hobbies you can do at home. Surfing online can kill time, but often it won't help with your boredom (OK, I'm sort of contradicting myself as I'm writing this lol). There's also a good chance that by getting out and doing something, you will meet people. Or at least you'll be around people enough to not be so lonely.

 

But I know how there can be times where you really want to be alone and other times where you really want to be around other people. It makes me feel weird too, when I can go to either of those extremes. It seems like it would be easier if I was just a constantly social person, but I guess that isn't me.

 

Maybe it would be good to talk to a close friend about it, maybe explaining it to them will help them understand your behavior so they know how you feel?

Exactly! It's so strange, I feel like a fraud if I even hint at loneliness.. As most people think, but 'that's because you never want to do anything', which is true, and untrue at the same time.

 

I will look into a more active hobby, or start going to the gym or something somewhat positive, the bad thing is, in the past when I managed to do things I really loved when not so low, like I used to make clothes, and then I became low... Even when I'm out of it, like this moment, it's hard as I now associate that feeling to that activity. I don't even know if that makes sense...
