Sometimes it can be difficult to limit the time you spend on a website.

 

Sometimes spending time or too much time on Surviving Antidepressants can cause anxiety and stress.

 

Many internet browsers have add-ons.  You can find an add-on that either blocks the site completely or blocks it temporarily and allows you to pick the amount of time that you have access to the site.

i hope you don’t mind me adding to this but i also have another idea that can limit time to this site.

 

for those who own an iphone or an ipad, there’s something you can do in settings called “screen time”, where you can set a timer for say 1 hour for this specific site and if you go over that, you get locked out for the rest of the day. 

 

to do this you go to settings > screen time > app limits > add limit > scroll down to “websites” > click this site on the list > set the time you wish for it to lock

 

hope this helps those who have trouble limiting site use! :)

- prescribed zoloft 25mg for panic/agoraphobia oct 2019 aged 19 (side effects instantly, never went away)
