Hi pudding, Welcome to healing well forum, we are happy to have you join our great group here. I can relate in a way as I have Multiple Sclerosis and have recently been diagnosed with an autonomic disorder with multiple heart complications so, I too have had to quit work and stay home. Fatigue is a huge factor with my illnesses also so getting up the energy to much of anything is a huge task. I have never been the "arts and crafts" type person either and not much of that interests me. I have continued to educate myself via the Internet and home schooling which is always a good choice and alternative for people in our positions. I have trying to walk everyday and get some exercise which seems to help a lot with my energy and endurance level. Perhaps, if you have some support groups in your area you can look into getting involved in some of those. My ex mother in-law has fibromyalgia and became active in a group at one of our local hospitals, it helped get her out of the house and out of her husbands hair..
If you like to read I know bookstores like Barnes and Noble sometimes have book clubs and activities of that sort. Or the YMCA has a great water stretching class for people with chronic illnesses, so that could also be an option....I don't know if these are the type of things you were looking for but they would get you out of the house and meeting people.
