    My Solution

    My solution to boredom is to eat. I makes me feel great to have a very full belly and them I have these wonderful rolls of fat to play with. That keeps me entertained almost endlessly. Of course, the fat cells demand more and more food, so it's a cycle of eating and fattening...

    I Hate Boredom

    Why Isn't This Working!?

    This is awful. My usual sources of entertainment just aren't working anymore. It's all so empty. There's nothing interesting on Youtube (crazy to believe, but it's true), none of the shows I follow are airing at the moment, I don't feel like reading anything, I can't play games...

    I often experience lack of concentration

    as a result of boredom. I find this to be extremely counter-productive and frustrating to the point, I'm wasting my time.

    No longer truly a battle, but an acceptance of it. Depression is a part of me, just like my arm, so I deal with it like I do with my arthritic elbow
