Finding some distraction from pain or the limits imposed on activity which gives some purpose or pleasure that was probably taken as granted in the life previously lived.
I spend more time on photography "squireling" away memories for the winter when I am less active outside of the house and can work on things taken during the better times.
These distractions maybe something carried over or a new activity that keeps brains active within the new cage of a long term health condition.
Adjusting interests setting challenges for some sense of fulfilment each as unique as the person doing what they can when they can whilst balancing effort and feel good factor.
Any shares on distractions still enjoyed ?
