  • I would have done the samethings. I can't be in bed all day and night, They know you can't. As long as you dont do alot like you should be doin then you should be OK. Just do one thing aday or every 4hr.

  • Take up knitting or Crochete. (sp?)
    Get a bunch of coins and a bucket and see how many you can make inside the bucket.
    Draw.
    Get a camera and see how many amusing pictures you can take. Not just of your face, but of the room you're in or body parts.
