    Thanks for the excellent discussion, everyone. I've decided that I will continue to avoid social media. I don't count this site, even though it technically is, because it's not addictive and it feels safe. My depression is in remission and I've structured my life in a way that anxiety rarely rears it's ugly head anymore. I don't want to jeopardize that. I've worked too long and too hard for it. If that means I feel socially isolated sometimes, I'm okay with that.

    Life and relationships did exist before Facebook, after all!

    My husband would tell you I'm addicted to facebook but really I've pretty much put every one I know on there as "unfollowed"....but I do get a lot of fun out of a gardening group on there.
