That's just the way the world of Real people seems when they are exposed daily on a website.|
That's what people are like: busy, lonely, on and off meds, using drugs of choice, dire family problems, financial difficulty, intractable medical stuff.
I do think defining one's relationship to this
world takes a bit of time and experience. I've spoken to others, since my "illness", who have had various internet involvements, intrigues,
experiences....mostly facinating and improbable.
I think a bit of a conflict arises in dividing
one's time well-between different communities, and personal interests and relationships.
For instance, my coffee and this chair are pretty damn comfortable right now. And it's certainly a joy speaking to a whole possible room of Net friends while still in one's bathrobe. What could be funner??
Well-I AM starting the Garden today and THAT is just as fun. Don't worry all--I always wax verbose on the early part of my vacation. Gotta
get those 2000 words in somehow.
