    [email protected] how are you doing? I have MS and it sounds a little boring but I like to watch a good movie. I turn the lights off and eat my popcorn and just watch the movie and forget about everything for a little while. I also like to come to the lounge here at scopes to talk to all of you interesting people. Check out the lounge. It's a great place to make friends.

    Hi @ZaraWrites sorry to hear you're feeling down.

    When I am down, I make an effort to do something nice that I enjoy.  I know it may sound silly, but I just bought a jigsaw for myself because I find I spend so much time staring at a screen, I wanted to give myself something to do, just for me that is screen free! 

    I also make sure that I reach out to my best friends when I am down to plan something nice to do, even if it is just a takeaway and a movie on the sofa.

    When I wake up feeling overwhelmed...  I've found that not thinking big helps.  I'm a 'big picture'  person... I think about what's next,  what's next week etc....  But that causes so much anxiety as I don't know what I'll cope with. 

    SO.  I now think only an hour ahead (sometimes!)  as above. I think I am going to get dressed in this next hour etc...

    I digress s...  Sorry.  For an immediate pick me up I listen to Radio 4 comedy.  Or play a little piano. 

    I have chronic pain so have coping strategies.  Sound helps,  any extra stimulas seems to block pain a little especially speech. So I have radio 4 on fairly constantly and it makes me smile.
