How can I beat the boredom of bed rest?

I'm curently having complications, and am stuck on limited bed rest. That means I can go from bed to couch to chair. No chores, lifting, and limited stairs. It's been two weeks, and I'm bored to tears. any suguestions would be helpful. Thanks so much!

  • When I was placed on bedrest I slept, read books, watched tv, and did word searches.
