Warning – HubPages May Be Linked to Mental Illness!

Updated on May 4, 2013

They're coming to take me away haha, they're coming to take me away!


I think I’m ‘bout to lose my mind

This insanity is an unfamiliar kind.

My mental health may have been in question

But these new dangers I just must mention!

I found this lovely community

HubPages to some, for others “HP”.

This place gave me an opportunity

To involve myself in such unity!

The people here are just so great

Inspiration and humor, some healthy debate

All the scoring and rating is pretty neat

Hubs and Hubbers’ scores compete!

A healthy obsession, watching scores rise

Often brings a tear to me eyes.

Can’t stop me now, how far can I go?

Out of my head these words just flow!

A new follower…wow, look at me!

Some accolades, oh golly gee!

I’m walking ‘round like a peacock

So what I’m in only one sock.

Brushed my hair a month ago

I’m gaining now, I mustn’t slow.

I’ll change my clothes eventually

Persistence here, that’s the key.

My kids will eat when I have the time

But at this moment I must rhyme.

Vacuum the floors or wash a dish?

A cleaning fairy, that is my wish.

Cannot waist time with a silly chore.

I’m working on my Hubber score.

96!? Holy cow!

What do you mean 91 now?

Less than 24 hours, I fell that far?

Don’t you find that a little bizarre?

I stay up at night and never sleep

Won’t find this girl counting sheep!

No not me I’m reading and rating.

Leaving hundreds of comments and healthy debating.

Here’s a thumbs up, what a good read

“Awesome”, “useful”, “interesting” indeed!

Okay thanks, you’ve inspired me.

Time to let my imagination run free.

I’ll make a hub for all to see

Now it’s their turn to read and rate me!

What is the problem? Is it something I said?

But I stayed up all night, didn’t go to bed!

I worked so hard, thought it was good

Maybe I’m misunderstood!

What is it that you want from me?

I’m quickly losing my sanity!

I gave up my time, there’s nothing else I do

It’s kind of pathetic, maybe sad but it’s true!

I hear voices and whispers but not the same kind

An intervention! My God, they think I’ve lost my mind!

Please don’t let them take me away.

I’ve got work to do on HubPages today!

      W1totalk,

      Ha ha... if you're starting to feel this way now, be very careful! :D

      I laughed as I was writing this because it's quite true!

      torrilynn,

      Thank you so much! I remember first getting to the point where I wondered if I should seek help... so I figured I'd share. I was relieved to hear so many people suffered from the same affliction! :D Thanks again! I really appreciate it!

      Have a wonderful day!

      I should read your hub this very day

      So said my friend Au fait!

      When I saw how your poem went,

      I understood just what she meant

      The more I read, the more I see

      It seems your words are meant for me

      But, I realize how it must be

      You are a hubber, just like me

      When I think of all the poems I’ve read

      Like ones that fill my heart with dread

      Or ones with finished thoughts unsaid

      Then I read yours and my heart was feed

      Sid,

      My kids will certainly have a colorful upbringing :D In my defense, among all the crazy, there's a lot of love!

      I might've been a little late to the Dr. Demento game, but I appreciate him nonetheless :D

      My graphics... uh... Google, but that's supposed to be a secret ;-) and you wouldn't believe what I have to type to get some of those results :D

      Be nice and clean! I'm not sure what's scarier, you or me. I've remembered Dr. Demento for 40 years, since Jr. High School, and You're becoming a fan now! What will that do to your kids???

      Awesome comic graphics, by the way. Where did you find them?

I think they're just infected too! Hey I had no power for 24+ hours Wednesday/Thursday... but I know you've got some new hubs up, I'm just trying to get through my 11 pages of email notifications... but I'll get there! :D

      Michael,

      Hey buddy! Somehow this little nugget slipped by me... and I usually never let a nugget go :D. I'm sorry to hear about your friend and I don't know if it's inevitable thing or if there is any chance he/she can get better, but I've felt for you both all day and I hope you're alright.

      With that said; my job is to bring funny to your life... so-

      I'm afraind I can't say I haven't been asked to leave... gee, now that I think about it... everyone, everywhere says that to me... hmmm wonder what that's all about? :D They can't kick us out of the streets, usually :D

      It's been awhile since I've laughed so hard I wet myself, but hey... on a good day? It's so embarrassing when you know you're walking around in soiled pants and yet, still laughing. Real friends will wet themselves too, seriously, I've had them do it before... you know, to make me feel less awkward :D

      Hang in there buddy, hope all is as good as it can be and you know where to find me if ya need me.

      Your buddy for life,

      @Cantuhearmescream...'cry'...there's no crying in Hub Pages!

      We would be thrown out of a lot of establishments...that is for sure...nothing really new for me...but it may take you sometime to get used to it. We would be blacklisted from everywhere...it would be so great.

      Girl...if you peed your pants while laughing...that would only make me love you so more...that would be so gross...yet so awesome.

      We both need to make time for each other...that's what it's all about. We can do this...I know we can.

      Your buddy for life too.

      I love your writing too and I’m just gonna have to make the time to come over your way… and you really are as good a friend a girl could have!!! You’re the best Michael… thanks for all the lub! :-)

      Your buddy for life… seriously, that’s not a promise… it’s a threat…I’m just sayin’ :D

      Whew…you were just kidding…you had me going there for a moment.

      Thanks very much for the kind words girl…but I’m just being honest…you’re the best. I really wish we lived closer together…that way we could go out and share the good times in person…we could leave the families behind and just laugh the night away.

      I do love your writing and should make time to come by and check it out…you’re my friend and that’s what friends do. Unfortunately we sometimes wait too long to let people know what the mean to us…sometimes we wait so long it’s too late…I don’t want to make that mistake…I want to shopw you the love and support you deserve.

      LUB YA MORE…nah!

      I'm sure you were playing! Haha. I'd be seriously concerned if I thought otherwise and your funny poem would be so much less funny. It's easy to be playful on HubPages and quite fun, too. It's just as easy to play as it is to be profoundly serious.

I'm glad I finally bumped into you and as I said before, I'm eager to read many more of your hubs!

      Anyway, you're beautiful Michael, you're way too kind and gracious. Honestly... I do miss talking with you and I know I'm missing out on some great laughs when I miss your stories, but I absolutely understand you have a lot going on and trust me, I'm not in the least bit offended you don't come over all that often. You're producing more than me, which means I'm missing more than you, which means I should be more ashamed of myself than you of you. You just wait and see, this time next year, our blogs will be blowing up ('cause I'm really gonna get to mine :-) , we'll be talking to each other every day, 'cause we'll be playing at the same park, we'll be rich and famous authors and have a ton of free time on our hands, we're both busy now, but I sleep at night by telling myself; it's temporary.

      You are the best Michael, seriously, and don't worry about coming over here... I can find you too... and I know you specifically have some pretty heavy things going on right now... so we're good :D

      You young lady are not forgettable...not by any means...you're awesome.

      You don't have enough faith in yourself...you're awesome...and once you realize that we'll all be better off. You are a great addition to Hub Pages...and the writing world as a whole.

I could say the same thing... actually I will; I should come to your Blog more, but I just get so caught up in the HubPages' World and I forget about everything else around me!!! Oh, except, please disregard the part about forgetting, because I can't say that I forget about you, in fact, I have a tight chest, due to stress every day, because I know you're out there and I always have intentions on getting to you and BLAM! another HP notification. :D

      But yes, I'll forgive you for forgetting about me, hey, some people are just forgettable.

      You're too kind Michael, really you are... I wish I'd have gotten here sooner, but I'm still working on that balance thing (broken record). This is temporary... I will have to start making it a point to get over your way more often... but hey... some people have Paris, we'll always have our project right?

      You... you are perhaps the funniest person I know and you should be living off your riches from it... I guess the world is unfair, but hey, you're young, there is still time and ya never know!

That is you isn't Michael... or have the rabbits gotten a hold of your keyboard again? I know, I know, in all fairness, I haven't been over to your pages in a while and there has been a hole in my heart because of that.

      -FOR ANY FUTURE READERS- Michael is a wonderful guy and the first step to recovery is admitting there's a problem... I'm also proud to announce that he has since entered rehab and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during these trying times.

      (Don't worry buddy, you know I've always got your back ;-)

      I will come over... I promise... I miss you :D

      Ha, a pretty girl who used to chew crayons... there's one in every crowd! Oh, I should hope she wasn't hungry, some people just can't resist a good crayon once in a while :-)

      Awww, see now, you told me to go and so I was going... but how can I walk away from you and these dreamy words of yours? Well, babe, you better sound the horns and clean the bulbs... I'm coming in! We won't be eating any crayongs will we?

      Yours,

      Lol!Sorry,but no crayon fiasco stories to tell,apart from a very long time ago when in Primary school(about 7-8 years old) when I got freaked out by a pretty girl who used to chew crayons ...probably wasn't being fed at home properly,now I think about it,poor mite.

      But regarding this eventful voyage;I shall make sure that the lighthouse beacon is shining brightly, to give you a safe,and trusting welcome towards your chosen sure,should you wish....I have your favourite colouring book waiting for you,ready to be brightened by the shades of your dazzling personality.

      That's what I was wondering? I thought, perhaps you had some tragic experience with crayons and just couldn't face the conversation :D

      Awwwww, see there are those liquid diamonds running through your quill I spoke of. ;-)

      Well, I think it might be a wise choice to pull this boat to shore :-)

      ... and me, with my crayons... ;-)

      Thanks sweetheart... thump thump, thump thump :-)

      How did I miss your last comment?Lol!! You're so funny.No crayons for you,my dear.I didn't fall to the floor...I fell through it,in astonishment of your growing capabilities.And dandy,do I hear you say?Why thank you,kind madam,and may I return favour by mentioning that your affection is like a calm ship,sailing through a sea of troubles,unperturbed by the thronging chaos that's all around,with a sure,and true destination bound for this pulsating heart?

      Theater girl,

      Ahhh, dang nam it! I've had your "Loving in the Light and the Dark" opened in it's own tab all day, but between weeding my garden and other distractions I haven't gotten to actually read it yet, now when I get there... you're going to think I'm returning the favor! Not True! I was going anyway. :-)

      Thank you though, thanks for stopping by and laughing... I like it when people laugh :D and it's nice to know that others can appreciate a little insanity and maybe relate a little?

      It is easy to get attached... hard to stay sane!

      Thanks again,

      Cat

      Fell to the floor laughing, I presume? :-) Just playing... oh but Romeo, we both know the truth, you have liquid diamonds flow through your quill and I write with melted crayons... but it comes from the heart so it should have some value, non?

      What can I say... you inspire me :-) I should eventually turn my crayons in for a pencil one day, with your constant reassurance and love. :-)

      You really are too kind... did I mention how dandy I think you are?

      Oooh, okay, I'm going to have to let you in on a little secret (I had to Google acrostic :-) ... I'm sure glad I did or this silly little girl would've missed it. That's so beautiful, I love it!

      Romeo came to this place

      Ooh I couldn't miss his face

      More, I needed to share my space

      Eloquent, his words I can't erase

      Oh, how he makes this girl's heart race

      How's that... did I do it? :-)

      I apologize for the delay... I had to walk away from my computer for just a moment and when I got back, the Updates that I've been postponing all day kicked in. I walked in just in time to see my computer say "Preparing for updates", in which I then stared at the computer for the next 20 minutes... and look what I've missed! :-)

      That's beautiful Romeo, gee, to think you can just whip them up like that... if I were able to come close to creating such beauty, I'd add a picture and make it a hub! Your words were made to make the knees of a girl week... yeah, this girl. :-)

      Thank you for that... ahhhh, so romantic, my eyes how they flutter and so does my heart :-)

      " Holding hands

      Under the moonlight,quells,and soothes our throbbing hearts;

      Sea,crashing,through the salt air;a sultry night breeze,

      Hugging,with translucent, lunar arms,harmonizes our new-found happiness."

      Really... I was just putting it lightly :-) I would say I will try to be more careful, but I can't hold back the truth... I guess I'll just have to start making wider doors! :-)

      Ooh a little French? Honestly, it was the moment of rushing to him, which seemed like an eternity and then finally reaching him, where I finally let it all out. Once I was with him, I felt better and further confirmation from all the docs solidified it for me. I'm grateful, it really wasn't much of anything.

      et... je vous aime très beaucoup! Oui?

      Minnetonka Twin,

      Aww, I'm sorry to hear about your luck... I know, I don't get it; doesn't seem fair. (My son was rushed by ambulance to the hospital from school today and I spent my day there, only to return home to see my score went from 96 to 93 :-( I guess I'll have to start making sure he's taking vitamins :-) ... and yes he's okay.

      That's too bad about Vincent leaving... I will have to try to find my way over to his pages and help his score out.

      I know everyone says don't worry about the score, it's just a number and confusing at that... but you have to wonder what you're doing wrong, or what you're not doing right, right?!!

      I feel the frustration, trust me :-)

      Thanks for stopping by and I'll have to swing by your way!

      This is so fun, clever and witty. Just love the rhymes and and message about the hub score. Vincent Moore just wrote that he's leaving the Hub (which would be terrible) because his score is so low now. I am seeing he same thing here. I can comment and comment and write hubs, but my score is no longer in the 90's like it use to be. I'm luck to hit the mid 70's. I am so confused. I'm ready to be taken away any time!

      I remember the song when I was a kid, but I haven't heard it in a while. It's funny, the tune comes into my head all the time when I'm sitting at the computer... they're coming to take me away ha ha, they're coming to take me away!!! I laugh, but the people in my house don't think it's so funny, they're concerned :-)

      vandynegl,

      Aww, thank you! I told you not to worry about it, but of course I'm happy to see you my way :-) Prior to joining HP, I wasn't social networking at all... I'm talking about the kind of thing where I had a dormant FB page with family members always mad at me for not posting and responding :-)

      I feel like this place is so much more productive than just social networking and I'm hooked. It's almost embarrassing how little control I have. ('Tween you and I, I really must find a happy-medium or I truly will go insane).

      Too funny about the kiddos! I absolutely can relate!

      See Cat, I made it here! I've been meaning to read this when it was first posted! I LOVE IT! Yes, mental illnesses can definitely stem from becoming too obsessed with hub pages, or facebook, or whatever group/forum/social network a person is a part of. It is very addicting! If I could force myself to stay up past 9:30, I'd have the entire hub community searched. Unfortunately, my kids are still yelling right now (and I'm ignoring them with effort). Keep up the great rhymes!

      Well, you may be the first person... ever to use me as proof that not all women are insane :-) I'll take it! I don't think we can compare achievements James, we all achieve different things at different times, sure accolades are great, but they certainly aren't all there is to this place. Quite frankly, I don't know what accolades you have, but you have a wonderfully strong presence here and you certainly add to this community. You give hubbers a good name... be proud! I wish all the same to you as well! Thanks a million James!
