Well I have recently faced a frustrating condition that forced me to stay home and stop going to work.

So now I have all this free time.

I thought about getting good at something.

(I don't have an xbox yet) Any ideas?

Don't get a console get a pc.

For the same price you'll have a multipurpose system that's way stronger and has controller support.

Pc's are pretty much plug & play nowadays not to mention it will run games from the past or previous gens in much better quality that they ever ran on the consoles

There are so many things that you can do. You can start reading seriously and intensively (as opposed to extensively) on some topic of interest. You can pick up any productivity software package along with its corresponding theoretical or scientific discipline, i,e statistics and SPSS, accounting and Excel...etc. You can finally start learning that foreign language you've always wanted to learn. Now that you're forced to stay home, its a great opportunity to finally get to it. Later on when you go back to your normal life, it will be much easier to stick to any of the things I mentioned so far given how you would have started doing it in a period with a great abundance of free time and very little responsibilities and distractions.

practice a sport intensely, read a lot of books on an interesting subject, greatly improve your drawing skills, write a book, learn to program, get really good at programming, learn to hack with your programming skills, hack the government's network and reveal all of their conspiracies, stuff like that.

Buy a telescope and spy on your cities seedy underbelly, or space. Was house bound with a torn knee 8 years ago, turned out to be the best year ever, I'm sure you'll figure out a way to past the time.

Well it's a condition I'm still trying to figure out what it is, going to the doctors an all.

Pulsing head with no pain

A bit sensitive to heat, I slow down, can't think straight, trouble swollowing

Get motion sickness.

Weakness, so working out isn't an option.

So far it's been getting better, but I'm trying to get to the bottom of it so it never happens again.

And thanks for all the replies everyone!!!

This condition I'm in really puts me down a lot, frustration to where I just wanna break down, but I suck up like a man and thankful the tests didn't come back saying I had Multiple Sclurosis.

These posts contributed to my positive outlook.
