I am very thankful for my internet. If it wasn't for it I wouldn't know or could have found the information that I now have. I searched the internet for prescription assistance. I am on medication and I have no medical coverage or insurance, I lost this when my job ended in December 2008. With this assistance I found on the internet, I now have gotten one of meds through the doctors office free. I had to qualify and it went through now I am good for one year then I will have to sign up again. I am not worried I am taking it one day (year) at a time. Have your internet helped you out in any kind of way?

Hi Chevee, I am so pleass that you found through the internet to get to the doctor for free medication which you deserve, they should have given free medication the moment you weren't working, the internet has helped me in so many different ways and when my husband was knocked off his bike by a hit and run driver, the police couldn't find him to claim so they told my hubsband there is not much we looked up in ther internet and found a an organzation who dells with things like that and found a solictor to handle the case, now in a few weeks time we should be recieving £5000.00 in compensation but some of it will go to the solictor, but I am not complaining after all my husband suffered an injuries and his bike was broken in two. The internet helped a lot. Hugs. Tamara xxx

The internet has helped me with a lot of things. I got advice on a lot of things. MyLot helps give me good advice. I think sometimes the internet is a good place to seek advice, and vent, without the people you have to deal with on an everyday basis judging you. I use the internet for research a lot. I even used the internet to find out what type of dogs I wanted.

I've used the internet for help with just about everything. I use wikihow when I don't know how to do something. I also use webmd when I have a problem that I can't diagnose. I think it's so easy to just go on the internet and find the answers to my questions.

I'm glad you found help with your prescriptions. I'm trying to get that right now too. I use the internet for all kinds of things. I shop online for xmas to avoid malls and crowds. I look up recipes online. I use WebMD and other sites like it to help me understand my illnesses and symptoms. I keep in touch with friends and family all over the country. I use the white and yellow pages to look up phone numbers or get addresses if I have to mail something. I volunteer on two health boards to answer questions other people might have pertaining to their illness or disability benefits. I've used mapquest to plan evacuation routes for hurricanes. I've used the internet to find places to stay that allow pets when we have to evacuate. And the list goes on and on.

Hi, guy! Nice topic! Internet has helped me in so many various ways that I really can't imagine a life without it. I use it so often to keep in contact with my relatives and friends. I search information to help with my daily stuff such as health problems, traffic routes, product price and so many others. Here in mylot, I log on every day since I registered an account here and engage my myself in topics which I am interested in. My English has been improved a lot and I can also make a little extra money, which is not my main purpose though.

Hi chevee~ I am glad to hear that you were able to find such important information like that about your medication. I will say that the Internet does open up a whole world of important information which I never would have known about too. It really is amazing the things that we can find out about and learn through just speaking to others who might have similar problems or just checking things out on our own. It is such a wonderful opportunity that we now have and I am very thankful that we do!

Anyone who says the internet didn't help them is lying or oblivious to the fact that it did really help them in some way. Whether that one way was simply getting in touch with an old friend, or something more complex like finding additional means to supplement your income. The internet has helped me in many ways but one of the most memorable ways it helps me keep in touch with friends that have moved out of state, and it's also helpful in terms of getting ahold of people that still live locally because there are plenty of free services you can use to talk to people as compared to racking up a bill on a cellphone. Glad to see your internet helped you find means to get one of your meds free!

The internet has really helped me in so many ways! I wanted a computer so bad a couple of years ago, (knowing I could make money on it), but could not afford one, then my sister was getting a new computer and gave me her old one and I have been very happy ever since, and just as I knew I would, I have been making money from the internet too!

I must say that ever since I learned the basics of internet,I have been helped on numerous occassions by it. It's because of this that I have helped myself up through quite a lot of things when I have none else near me to talk to,be it on relationship problems, studies,or anything about which I am completely unware of. So,I must say Internet is a very important part of my daily life,and life would have been a lot harder without it.

The earnings and all the research that I do. Oh yes, I use the internet for so many reasons. I think, I have found out about medicines, one helped my daughter...! I just think that my list would be endless. I wonder just how long would my list be? That is a good topic for another discussion. Very interesting, we probaly loose count of how many ways it helps us all the time.
