Two years ago around this time, I was off work due to depression and due to a lump on my arm that had to be removed by operation. Initially, I was advised that the lump was due to blood cancer. However, that turned out thankfully not to be the case. After the operation, I was advised that I couldnt drive, lift things, do weights or go running for four weeks whilst my arm recovered and stitches dissolved, basically all the things I loved doing. Unfortunately this turned into six weeks due to my arm becoming infected.
During the that time, I ensured my alarm was set at the same time it would be if I was going to work and I would try and plan something for every day, even if mundane things like "Wednesday, I am going to sort through all my old game magazines". I found that having something to do everyday helped me through, even when at times I would cry for basically no real reason.
I ended up modding my original xbox and PS2, with the former I removed the hard drive and installed coinOPS which I learnt how to do after watching tutorials on YouTube.
Friends are important but I know sometimes this can be difficult. I ended up going to a few gigs which helped with socialising as most of my mates were at work during the time I was off. I saw Pearl Jam UK, Royal Blood, Alice Cooper and The War On Drugs, the latter of which was spoilt because I was in bad pain due to my arm being infected, I found this out three days later after a visiti to hospital.
Hopefully your recovery time will pass quickly.
