The side effect of boredom

Life is a really funny thing sometimes. The past few days I've been bored out of my mind, which is sort of unusual for me. Despite having an incredible amount of time on my hands, I haven't spent much of the past few months bored and I finally realized why. The new steroid meds have provided me a level of relief from unremitting agony and the net effect of that is boredom. It's amazing how much pain can occupy your thoughts as it's churning away. Now that I'm having less problems, my mind is free to complain there's nothing to do. How's that for irony?

The really remarkable part is that I haven't really experienced much boredom in like the past 6 months or so, ever since I had this downturn start. It's one of those feelings that can only creep up on you when most of your general needs are satisfied and there's no much going on. At this stage, I'm going to have to find a new hobby, activity, or something before I end up driving myself nuts.
