Mentally ill online?

Postby Justddrown » Tue Feb 11, 2020 5:35 am

So in a normal personal setting for the most part these days I’m not as bad. But then like characters come out on the internet and that’s incongruent to my actual life. I’ve had panic attacks thinking of some of the lunacy. But where does that come from? You know, what’s that?

Sometimes online, people create alter egos...they might say things they really want to say or act ways they would like to really act in their every day, non-cyber lives...It can be quite addictive and rewarding for some people to have that outlet for their repressed ego, their fantasies....I say be careful with it, and keep everything in moderation...getting too involved in that and worrying about online personas could be stressful for anybody, especially when there's a cyber reputation to keep up..I guess panic attacks would be more of an extreme reaction to that, and might be indicative of there being a problem with what you're doing, and most importantly that you're concerned about it. Good luck!
