I have horrible computer anxiety, fright & can't break thru it. I took a class & that didnt help. I'm fine on an IPhone, but not computers.

Hi- When my eldest son began to teach me about computers the first thing he said was, "Ok Mom, this is the computer. It is very, very stupid." In other words, don't be intimidated by it. If you have access to one, just pour your favorite drink, relax, and play with it. You can't break it. Have a computer-savvy person to teach you. It is just a device to help you.

Well, how about an iPad? It's just a big iPhone.

Yes you are right, I find it a little more easy, not so much anxiety involved. Not every employer uses only an iPad :(

Then don't use computers. Why subject yourself to something you are not comfortable with doing. Life is too short sweetie. Rock on iPhone.

Don't want to spoil it for you, but these days an iPhone IS a computer.

I know, that's why it's so frustrating :/ it's with computers that I have had this problem only.

Well, when I got my first computer, I felt the same way. The man who sold it to me said to learn to play games on it. Once you think of it as a toy, it's not so intimidating. He was right.
