Being housebound is tough..
I have been housebound with illness for 5 years. So what do I do with my time to stay sane?
I have become a master at online chess and jigsaws. I have started reading autobiographies which are great. I am loving Andre Agassi's book at present.
I also made a website dedicated to making people laugh at http://www.keeplaughingforever.com
Some days I like to sit outside and watch the clouds go by. I use my imagination to see what each cloud resembles.
Staying positive and busy is the key for me to enjoy my life as much as I can.
