Do you get stressed out, or talk to people, or do something else?

I usually go online to either a forum, message board or facebook to see if there is anyoene to chat with. If that doesnt work I read a book or watch tv..

Pet my dogs, talk to my dogs and if still lonely, I will read my Bible and remember that I am truly not alone.
I also get on the internet and read about how to create a life so I won't be so lonely. They suggest getting out and talking to people, joining a group...but, sometimes that's hard to make yourself do. I understand what you are talking about completely.

i like to chat online, too. do you ever crave face-to-face conversation, though?

it's hard to join a group, but you know what? if you keep going back it gets a lot easier. it's just the first few times that are tough.

i like to pet and talk to my dog, too. what breed(s) do you have, and what are their names?

Before I do anything else, I stop myself and ask myself..."Where is this really coming from?".
