Thank you for sharing. There is always a need to consider what type of energy is brought into life.I have been online for many years now and have always done work while online. I work a bit and then sit down at the computer. When I eat I usually eat at my computer since it on the table anyway. Normally though I watch YouTube when eating so I don't have to type. I cannot stand for long periods due to my knees so working in the kitchen for 5-10 minutes then sitting down for 10 has been working for me. I get a lot done. I make a list first thing and go from there.
I do see people face to face........almost daily. I have 3 different friends who come here often, two almost every day. I see people in the hall, laundry room at the dumpster or even in the parks. My son comes here almost every day but not for very long. My bf calls me every morning as soon as he wakes up and I talk to him several times through out the day. So not really lonely for personal contact.
As for my online contacts and in person contacts, they are not the same. I feel I share more personal conversations when I can write it down though. Like right here.
