The internet was my only way to communicate with people for quite a while in the past.
These are the sites I’ve found the most helpful:
Online therapy. You can seek help or provide one by becoming a listener.
If you prefer online therapy, this might be one of the best sites to seek professional help.
Forum where you can get some very useful information about tapering psychiatric drugs.
You can find almost any topic in there or open your own. It’s not an instant help option, but you can get many helpful insights from people with the same problems, other issues, or have a debate about anything else you want to focus on.
The worst thing you can do to yourself when you don’t feel so good is to focus too much on your own bad feelings or any other bad stuff. Been there, done that and I really don’t recommend it.
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube
These sites can be very helpful and informative. But they can never replace a talk with your doctor or other qualified professional.
Doctors are humans too, and nobody knows everything. Some are better in one area, others in another. It’s best to find the ones who are willing to listen to you and are willing to discuss all possible options to provide you the best help you deserve.
You can get plenty of good advice online, but it’s not bad to have some offline consultations too. Nothing can replace an in-person communication.
This goes, if you’re already covered with some unpleasant feelings, but even better, to prevent or stop them from getting any worse, if you’re dealing with some difficult situations.
Which online community do you find the most useful?
