Does anyone else find it hard to have a hobby/interest outside of taking care of your physical and mental health? If I pick a hobby then my ocd ruins it for me. Prayers to everyone

    Ugh yes. I lost so many of my hobbies when I started feeling worse. Now that I’m feeling a little better I am able to pick some of them back up again, but it’s hard when you’re in the thick of it!

    It’s easy to have interests (I’m also autistic) but engaging them is hard when I’m so fatigued. 😥 💕

    I have too many hobbies. I have a difficult time finishing projects and cleaning up afterwards. My craft room is a disaster.

      same here! Then I never clean it up because "I'll finish it later"

    I'm a gamer and sometimes playing games makes me very frustrated.

    Been playing a lot of Fortnite with my roommates lately but I just recently dug up my fishing rod so now it's about to be time to go out with one of my homeboys who's got the best spots, do some fishing and vape. Maybe a little puff puff pass while we're at it

      The only frustrating things for me are when I have to do really serious stuff like permanent disability applications and it just gets more and more complicated, like come on man I'm trying to enjoy what little bit of life my brain will still let me enjoy

    it's so hard to have a hobby at all, if i'm honest. i just don't have the energy to try, and it really saddens me because i used to have a ton of hobbies i loved. it's okay for your road to healing to be long, and it's okay for you to focus on your health first. i hope you find a happier place soon, one where you can dig into many passions ♡

    i have like, 782694 hobbies because of my adhd. i tend to phase in and out of them. i have to always be making or creating something, or else i go crazy. my ocd affects some of them in that they have to be done in very specific ways and without any help, which is frustrating. if i receive help, my brain tells me the thing is no longer really mine. i can't even use sewing patters or cooking/baking recipes, because my brain insists that if i do, what i made is just a copy. it's a struggle

    I have a crap ton of hobbies. A lot of artistic outlets that involve hands. Sculpting, drawing, painting, carving, sewing.. and the ADHD and perfectionist nature have always been at war. "Finish this by 5am" followed by "oh, but if I was doing -insert other craft- I would be having way more fun!" Then two messes, and nothing to show for it but unfinished chunks of garbage.
