    I just got this new self-care app called Finch and you take care of a penguin by doing tasks for yourself. The free version is a bit limited but it is more fun for me than the other ones I have tried. I always do better trying to care for others than myself.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I'm so glad it works for you. I definitely will check it out.

    There are a ton of different ones. You might want to try a few and see which you like. I have tried like 10 different ones and never stuck with it until I started using Finch

    I just get use to it that this is my life now and adjust to it. It sucks but what can I do

    A lot of tv. Sometimes reading or calling a friend or family member. Playing with my dogs or cat helps too.

    Find things that make you happy, get involved in as many new activities as possible.

    Therapy is great. Also if possible get a pet of some kind. I got myself a hamster and while it didn’t help my pain it did help my depression since I had something to take care of. Any type of animal would be great since there’s been plenty of studies showing how animals help with mental health.
