Are there any local classes or groups (that are physically-challenged friendly) that you can take that might peak your interest? A book club, an art class, a choir, fishing group, a quilting/knitting circle, bowling, Aquafit, mini golf, cosplaying etc? Or volunteering activities that help out the community? What about special weekend events, like farmer's markets or performances? When you feel better of course after your ER visit If you are homebound for a little while, you can join some Facebook groups that have similar interests or consider taking online classes to keep your mind engaged and stimulated.
