Is this the prevailing opinion on reddit? I was off work for almost 4 months following a shoulder surgery, and I quickly started to feel useless without anything to do do for those 4 months. Money wasn't a concern at all, I was still making essentially the same if I had been working, but doing nothing takes its toll.

I don’t find it difficult to keep myself entertained at home and there are plenty of things to do around the house to be productive. I took a voluntary lay off for 2 months like 2 years ago and it was the best 2 months of my adult life by far.

A 2 month furlough is different than disability though, I couldn't do much with only one arm. TV and video games get old pretty fast, and it's difficult to be productive when you're laid up.
