Researchers at the University of Gothenburg  recently studied more than 4,100 Swedish men and women between the ages of 20 and 24 for a year and found that a majority of them who constantly use a computer and mobile phones can develop stress, sleeping disorders and depression.

Get off your computer and back in front of the TV where you belong~! tongue

For anyone that is a bit older and has a bit of time to reflect back, would you characterize yourself as mentally stable in your early 20's? tongue Didn't think so... Grin

I think they're looking at it backwards.

People with pre-existing mental disorders naturally collect on the internet because in many cases the internet helps them be social in spite of their disorder.

Or the freedom the internet offers lets them run away from all the people they offend not realizing why because they haven't figure out the full extent of what their disability affects.
