 Studies show that the internet is making us lonely, depressed and possibly crazy.

Do you think this is true?  Do you know anyone that this is happening too?

I have always been crazy, I am not depressed or lonely.

Hmmm, lonely, depressed or crazy, huh?  Don't think I fall into any of those categories.  I do believe that many young people fall into one or two of them though.

I have read this as well, but not sure I know anyone who has been affected in this way.  I usually get on the computer every day, but have too much else to do usually to spend too much time here.  I can see it being very isolating to people who don't have much of a life, and can make things worse, as not getting enough exercise or daylight to elevate the mood can affect some people badly.

Heck, this is the place I LIKE to come to escape from people face to face.  

It's perfect dialogue for me as there is no talking and no deep conversations.  It's right up my alley after all the people I deal with every day.  Frankly, all the talking is what I love to do...but then, I like the peace and quiet.  Of course with five dogs, it's not so quiet either.  There's always one snoring so loud, and she doesn't come with a volume button...haha

I can see what you're saying though.

Yes because we need to get out and be with people to be social and interact not type everything we want to say

That only applies to people who have no family and are basically shut ins.  I'm sort of crazy but it has nothing to do with the internet.

Yes, I have 2 friends that stay home, never go anywhere and never leave or almost never. They are both very depressed and lonely.
