Personally I am going with the flow. My T says not to fight too much what I seem to need to do. So I am on here when I feel the urge so bad and it has helped me. I have read threads that have helped me see deeper into my own issues. So I don't think it is a crutch or a waste and yes probably I would be doing something like watching TV reading a book or looking at the walls. Which I think are ok because sometimes I still do those things and sometimes I just need to unplug and sometimes I have moments of clarity. The way I look at it is right now all my work is in my head not physical and while that looks like no work or just staring at the ceiling or wall it is a huge amount of work. I need to do this to get healthy. One of my few good friends that I thought had her act together told me she has spent 5-6 years in therapy going once to twice a week for 3 years then going every two eventually once a month and still once a month. She said it has taken all she has to get where she is. Still has bad days but all in all it is better now. She is still on an AD. She is a doctor and with a thriving practice and you would have never known it. She has helped me find the T I use and has helped me with feeling bad about where I am. She has helped with demotivation too. So don't look at what you doing as demotivation. If you get a small ounce of help out of surfing or being at Babble then that is help. It is important to take what you can where you can because you never know where it will come from. I just recently found some of the best advice from my neuro a most unlikely source. She gave me some wisdom I thought would only come from a Therapist. I almost cancelled my appt thinking it would be a waste of time and yet this pearl of thought came from her. I still marvel over it. So I now think it comes down to how we think about what we are doing too. Rethink your focus and you might be surprise what you get out of what you are doing.....rk
