is anyone else just so extremely bored of everything? I don't even feel like doing any hobbies and because of it you get upset or even angry because you don't know what to do

      I don’t even feel like watching tv or listing to music and that’s really gotten me lately…

      I struggle with this so much, I haven't been able to find the words to describe it. I want to have a hobby so bad but I'm either bad at them or get bored of them way to easily. it's annoying because I really want to have one

      So me!! I just can’t find joy in anything. Can’t concentrate long enough to watch a movie all the way through or even pick up one of my “projects” that I used to enjoy. Every day is the same. Lonely. Boring. Long.

      I play on my phone or tablet with my little one. It helps and I don't enjoy all the things I used to. Zoloft was prescribed to me to help. My anxiety and coping skills can be better. I understand the struggles.

      I have a problem with instant gratification that I need to work on lol. So after finish my hobby if it didn't feel rewarding, or if it doesn't as I'm actively doing it, I just can't do it. It makes me feel like what I'm doing is pointless.

      Yes. Every day, all day. It wasn't really like this before I got this sick, like it happened occasionally but I could usually find things to keep me interested for hours. I think it's a combination between my medical conditions messing with the reward system in my brain and probably some sort of dopamine dysregulation - and also being stuck in the same room every day, often in bed, never feeling well, always alone with nothing new to do. It feels like torture sometimes, being in pain and feeling physically ill while also having constant overwhelming boredom. My brain and body are just broken

      Yeah im so bored. I've been able to get through the day by playing one of my SpIn games and doing chores when I can but it's not really fun for me and if I don't im so bored I want to scream.

      I go through that at times too! I keep pushing my drawing/painting onto the next day, same with my video games too

      Yes I have so many hobbies but wish I had something new and exciting to do.

      my partner and I both have ADHD and struggle with everything being literally painfully boring. he'll come into the bedroom and get in bed for snuggles saying, word for word, "all of my games are boring and so is youtube" and he just watches what I'm doing and takes a nap lol

        @wise Yes. I relate. (Though I don't have a partner). I just scroll my phone, I can't even get into tv shows.

      • hazyeclipse

        661d

        @wise I do wonder if it could be related to my ADHD as well. I relate so much to this haha, literally everything being painfully boring. It feels worse than almost every other feeling to me, maybe because it's more pervasive and intense than anything else for me

        • wise

          658d

          @hazyeclipse it's the worst for me because it's the only feeling I can't do anything about. that is related to ADHD though, new meds may help if you take any and it's a frequent issue

      I struggle with this hard. It’s affecting my identity and my sense of self, because I don’t know who I am anymore without my interests and hobbies to define me. Nothing really interests me or brings me joy anymore

      • Dinkyduck

        661d

        @TheBigSpook I really like how you explained his. I’m so with you ! I wonder if i should run away 🤣

      This is me. My mom and my therapist keep telling me to find hobbies. I just can't. They're boring or I am not doing them right or I just can't get into them. But I've been told I have to just push through it. :( everything is push through it. It sucks.

      yeah same, that's a symptom of depression

    • LydiaRay

      Yes me too! If I can't be perfect the first time I won't do it. The only thing so far I've felt that I was good at is yoga.
