Understated Ur-Drakon The Almighty Doer of Stuff Posted January 7, 2021 Share Posted January 7, 2021 I currently have nothing I really have to do other than chill out due to life circumstances. My friends are taking care of the hard work for a change, and they say I should just relax, enjoy myself, keep up my ADLs (Activities of Daily Living, for those who have never been at a psych hospital to hear the term; bathing, cleaning, eating healthy, etc.) and wait patiently. I should be pretty good. But there's something that happens now and then throughout my life, where I'm bored, and I want to not be bored, but doing anything else would be just as if not more loathesome than doing nothing. Is there a word for this? Some people call it "ennui" but I think really that's just a synonym for "boredom". I know I'm not the only person who ever feels this way. Two thirds of my life has often had refreshing this forum over and over hoping for a new post as my entertainment. Saying that doesn't make me feel good. :P But I know many people do that with Facebook or similar websites. I've seen memes about it.
