Okay I was curious and thinking about this a lot, with the development of technology is the internet a good or bad thing. Yes there are sites like this one developed to help people who are struggling etc. And I know for one thing I would not be here if it wasn't for sites like this and people I have meet online. Also it has made getting help more accessible with self help guides and online support services, but are these any substitutes for professional clinical treatment? BUT On the other hand is it an easy escape out, I mean I struggle to talk to people in normal everyday scenarios, I have had girlfriends but all of them have just happened, is the internet a means to an end. Are we making things worse because we can hide behind a text message, email, or pc screen? On the same hand it may also put people of seeking help, and also encourage them to hide behind a screen as a form of self reliant coping mechanism, I know I do sometimes I panic if I am not logged on my laptop even though I just sit there, In Japan they now have rehab clinics for anyone people who are addicted to the internet. I guess I was just curious to see peoples thoughts and reactions to this?
