Hi I'm struggling right now. I'm feeeling lonely alot and get
bored all the time witch is causing me to get very depressed.
I watch a baby everyday witch is boring then i come home and
I'm bored again.. Does it make sense for boredom to create
depressive thoughts and feelings? I just went back on one of
my meds because i was doing terrible. I don't want to end up
doing something harmful.. Please help..

Makes sense that boredom can turn into depression. Scheduling regular pleasurable activities can help including trying new things.

Let me know how you make out.

Whatever could excite and stimulate you. Some things I did were becoming a Rabbi, getting a black belt in Taekwondo, making a music CD, running 5 miles three times a week, losing 50 pounds, buying new clothes, discovering a new treatment for Autism, spending more time doing my daughter's homework, traveling. Think of 10 things you would like to do while still in this world (a bucket list). Only you can pick what is on
your list.
