If I shut down my computer, I lose contact with my friends, with the world, and I might go insane. And there's nothing to do outside, because I can't relate to anyone where I am.
You can socialize online, you can make friends online. I met my best friends and my guy online. We aren't just words on a screen, you know?. I do understand what you mean though, that being online for too many hours isn't the best option. But in some cases it's not that easy to just go out. If I had the motivation, the energy, I'd go out all you want... but that doesn't mean I'm going to have fun or stop feeling like an outcast. I do go out if I have to, but sometimes It feels worse than being here in my "cave".
And I'm pretty sure that most people here are aware that this site is not made to beat their SA. It's a support site, maybe even a social site, considering that you can talk to others and even make friends here.
Anyway, I'm sorry if I sound like I'm bashing your post. I know you mean well. I'm just voicing an opinion, that's all
