    Hi Mandy, pleased to meet you :)
    My fav distraction is playing cards online - bridge with other (live) people - I find it totally absorbing and helps me forget about troubling thoughts should they start to try to take my mind places it doesn't need to go.....

    No post on SF is pointless, at all, ever. :) I hope I managed to answer yours before 'then' :)

    Urprecious is right, no post is pointless
    I like to draw as a distraction too , when I'm too tired I sit on the chat room here and talk to people or just with the conversations, it usually makes me feel less lonely and fall asleep. Hopefully this is helpful, sometimes distracting yourself is hard but it's possible , hang in there :)

    Your post isn't pointless. You can open up to us at any time, and we'll be here to help. I usually post on here for distraction, talk to people, write, watch movies or TV, clean, do things like that. I'm not sure what things interest you, but I'm sure there are things you can find that will occupy your mind for a while. If you need to talk to someone to take your mind off things, feel free to message me at any time.
