I am a full time carer to my wife.
To get online has been so good for me in many ways.
I need "time-out", and that can be any time, so I guess
my surfing habits could be said to be unstable.
I take Jo Jo's point. And yet for me? I have to say that
I find it so very relaxing and nice to just sit here and
have some project or aim to go at. At the moment I am
building a new PC ... and the Internet is a mine of info.
So I guess it's a mixture of a few things that get me here
in the first place, and also going online when my wife is able
to rest. It's my "space" (maybe the wrong word) But it gives
me chance to rally myself around, to see and read things
of interest to me.
We are all here for different reasons, and I am sure we all
benefit from whatever they may be for the time we spend
on the internet with the available time that we have.
Speaking of which? ... My available time has ran out (smile)
I need to prepare supper and get my wife's med's sorted out.
I don't declare myself to be a poet ... merely a writer of words.
Never underestimate the power of your thoughts.
