These people can lead you to despair and depression if you pay too much attention to what they say.They may advise you to go off your meds or stop seeing your psychiatrist or therapist. They threaten your mental health and may even put your physical wellbeing in jeopardy.Although the majority of those talking to strangers are just being friendly, some of them are actually addicted to the Internet, chatting, or cybersex. Addiction is defined as the condition of being addicted to a certain activity or substance.For example, Internet addiction disorder (IAD) is excessive Internet use that interferes with your daily life.With strangers, you do not have to worry about being judged or feeling ashamed because you are anonymous so nobody knows who you are.Just the fact that they cannot see you can make you more comfortable to talk about difficult subjects. A study of 320 individuals was done to determine if people were honest when chatting online.
Some of them are honest and professional but some are not.In these respects, online chat with strangers that share something in common can be extremely helpful.However, not all people in online support groups want to get better or learn to manage their disease.If you want to speak to someone in person, they can find a therapist near you that you can see. If you have a concern about your mental health or have received a diagnosis of a mental disorder, chat groups may be available to address those issues and conditions.For some people, chatting with someone online who is struggling with the same conditions that they are can be comforting.
