Does talking about anxiety make it worse?

Sometimes it feels like being on this website makes me more anxious/depressed. Talking and reading about other people's anxiety or depression makes me want to be like them and relate more and it makes me think about it more and overthink which almost feels like its making it worse than it needs to be. Don't get me wrong, I love relating with people and talking to people about their anxiety if it helps them (and it does help), but overall if I spend too much time on here I feel like its dragging me down. One of the best ways to get out of depression/anxiety is not to dwell on it. You have to get yourself out of it before you suck yourself in more. So if I spend too much time on here it drags me down and I feel worse about myself than I need to, etc. It is definitely nice to let out the feelings every now and then and have others relate and comment and encourage, but I don't think this website is a good website to browse and rant to for hours. Does anyone get this?

Humm. Very good point... I've had worse anxiety A few times after being on here. I haven't thought of it as this site making it worse. I'll have to pay more attention the next few times I'm on here. What your saying makes sense though.
