Default How do I move on?

Dr Joe,
I am in the process of waiting for a hip replacement. Due to the constant pain I find myself withdrawing from outside activities and basically spend my day watching TV or playing on the computer. There is a church luncheon next Tue. and I don't plan to go but I'm so bored I feel I should go. How do I break this cycle of not wanting to participate? I could get through the pain for such an event but can't make myself get out and get on with my life. I read something today that said this is your minds way of coping with the pain avoiding everything. Is it as simple as that?
