I’m stuck at home and mostly in bed. What types of things do you do to stay positive, not feel so left out, connect with others, and keep away the boredom if you’re in a similar situation?

      I would highly recommend getting Discord and checking some public servers out. You'd be surprised how many niche servers there are, and even if you aren't interested in meeting new people it can be an excellent place to talk with friends and family through things like video chat. I live away from my family but will still have movie nights with my brother through the screen sharing feature. It's awesome for family communication. Another app I use to help myself stay on track is Finch, as that's a self-care app without a massive paywall on it or advertisements. I really recommend it for staying motivated. I use it alongside with a friend and it's been nice to have even just that form of connection with others. Staying positive can be a bit more tricky, but what helps me is just reminding myself it's a mindset and to keep practicing looking for the bright side of situations. Sometimes I'll also make stories in my head for people, like the guy that cut me off in traffic and sped off Id joke his wife is giving birth and he's late, or he really just needed a toilet, things like that to paint bad situations in another light.
