The Internet As Therapy
I know, sounds weird doesn't it? But you know, it's not really
when ya stop to think about it. Where can you find 24 hour action for
so little money? There's always something happening on the Net.
From just surfing for information (like this site), to online support
groups of three sorts. Yes, there are Chat rooms on IRC (InterRelay Chat),
ICQ (my ICQ UIN# is
9215347) text-based virtual reality communities in MOO's, and of course,
the standard email
forums for virtually any topic one can think of. ICQ
is free in beta version and is real simple to use for real time chatting.
But still, I suppose the best thing about this medium is the ability to
self-publish and express yourself in any of the groups or ways mentioned.
Being bipolar often means rattling around at hours many find repugnant.
If YOU on the other hand feel like talking the night
away, or are feeling at the end of a depressive rope, there's always
someone willing to talk, care and share with you. Bipolar communities
are perhaps the most dynamic and caring groups on the net. There's nothing
that compares with, or beats those who have been down the path you may
now be travelling when it comes to being there when you need them most.
Many psychiatrists readily admit they cannot provide the immediate,
intense quality of care that one's fellow sufferers on the net can.

It really is an opportunity you shouldn't miss out on.
