Husband is out of country for a month to see a sick family member. It’s just me and my fur babies. Doing all the chores and taking care of fur babies are keeping me busy but it’s kinda depressing not having any human interaction. All my family and friends live far away. I am already on medication for depression. I mean I am wrapping up my doctoral dissertation to submit it by March, but…it’s not like I work on it 24/7 Any tips?

Agree!! Dog park people are the best

Video Games? Maybe get a console if you don’t, you will be able to at least talk with other folks (don’t have to be great at the game).

Especially Mario karts or Mario-smash bros! They’re driving and battle games loll so it’s not too difficult to get the hang of.

Binge watch some good tv, try out some new recipes and drink some nice wine with them (within reason), get a peloton and get into working out, take long walks… so many possibilities!

I go and chat up the barista when I need a little extra socializing. Or maybe take a visit to the dog park, other owners are usually down to talk.

-The gym helps me and is an escape for me -I also like taking walks -binge watching shows is a fave. Make some popcorn or grab your favorite snacks and relax and watch a nice show -word searches and reading books -journaling

Are there any walk/hike/activity groups around you? Any potential meetup events that you might be interested in? Indoors or outdoors? That will make you leave your house for a while and will give some change! Do you think that might help? Essentially a non-professional setting wherein you can meet people - kids through adults- and just discuss aspects of common interests!

TikTok

Get a toddler you won’t have time to be bored helps with the sadness.
