I'm also a knitter and I spend a lot of time on the computer. I write and I read (when I can concentrate -- I also have trouble with this.) I like to watch movies, naturally. I also get out when I can. I go to cafes or go shopping.

As to the pain -- I believe definitely depression can cause pain. I'm no doctor though. Talk to your doc about
