    Do you ever get sucked into a RJ black hole and look up and realize you've spent WAY too much time posting on the forums?

    OMG I need to take a break for a few days, the forums are like crack... I feel like a junky.

    WAY to much time

    most of the time I'm not even posting but just reading what other people post in a thread I'm interested in.icon_eek.gif

    Or when I post something I check back multiple times whether someone commented on my posticon_redface.gif

    I've reached a new obsessive low... I met friends at the hospital for a friend's kidney transplant, she just went in I jumped on a work shuttle to go to my office while she is operated on and used my phone to get on RJ forums... *sigh* I've got it bad

    I have OD-ed on RJ on more than one occasion. Those are alarmingly weird days... I often wish I could get them back.

    I'll take Gidget's Disease... I might get more work done. (I ventured from RJ for just a second to Google it)

    Then where's your "LOL"? There's another thread going that criticizes LOLs, too. Of which I'm guilty, as I am of being an RJ junkie.

    In fact, I've been an online junkie since the 1980s; only the services I use have changed over the years. At least it's helped my typing skills... LOL! (opppss... not supposed to do that anymore icon_redface.gif )

    Well, even before I suffered increasingly limited mobility, I was exploiting the social networking aspects of the Internet. I just really like people and conversation, and online is one more form of meeting & greeting, exchanging ideas and making friends. I see it like the old-fashioned pen pal system, only mega-times faster in our turbocharged high-speed world.

    And the ability to chat, and see pics, sometimes vids, of people from every part of the globe is beyond comprehension to me. We've got guys chatting here from every continent on Earth, including Antarctica.

    I doubt I ever would have met that "mentally unstable" sweetie, Sedative from the Philippines, or that whole mob from Australia and New Zealand if it weren't for the Internet, and services like RJ. Addictive? Sure, like living life is addictive.

    The issue is merely one of priorities, and taking some executive control over our own lives, occasionally pausing for a little self-direction. And that is the message I'm getting from the OP.
