I Spend Too Much Time On the Computer

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,984 People

    But There Is So Much to Do.

    Sometimes I can't seem to get enough of the computer.  I am always finding something new on here everyday.  I love reading stuff on here, spending time on EP, chatting with friends and playing games.  I don't know what I would do without my Internet.

    because of my "internet" friends. They tell me that I'm worth something, I'm pretty, and how strong I am. And it's mostly because it gives me more self esteem than you would think. Everyone around me just doesn't really notice me I guess. I don't know it's hard to not get sad...
