      Well my hands were shaking
      I was seeing little white specks in front of me with the word forum in them
      My mouth was dry
      i was hearing voices inside my head.  (profile,my account)
      Couldnt think of anything else.

      The kicker was when my family found me curled up in a ball in the corner of my office and all I could say was Hubtivity over and over and over

      Thats when I knew I needed help

      Lol

    Yeah, had to shut down too just to get work done around the house this weekend. Painted the living room, set new tile around the fireplace, went shopping for the first floor bathroom renovation, and managed new tires on my bike. Needed to get the bike up to start exercising from sitting too long in front of the laptop..... smile

    I've only just started out here but I can see how it can get to be really addictive. We might have to start a hubpages anonymous group.

    Oh, Hubaholics Anonymous is already well established here. I've lost count of how many admitted Hub Addicts we have -- but I do see a disturbing trend. Newbies seem to be coming in and getting addicted faster and faster. I wonder why that is?

    Pam -- Can I help you run the rehab? With your banking background you should be the administrative director. I'll be intake counselor. Might need some help, tho. Let's see who else volunteers:-).

    Mighty Momposted 9 years ago

    Enelle, sorry, but we're waiting for our resident nursing professional AEvans. She is the only one licensed to dispense drugs.
    I believe the next med call will be at 8pm.
    Which would you prefer -- Thorazine or Librium?

      I just had a little nap.  they said the voices would go away but as soon as i got up I could hear them again.

      It keeps drawing me in,  I thought addiction but now Im thinking a poltergeist or something.

    I would like thorazine at next med call, I was accidentally given that one time by a nurse and I lost 3 days out of my life.  I guess it is time for a vacation again.

    Are you kidding me! I have HubPages on my mobile. I could be at a movie location or somewhere and I'm posting in a forum. Or here's this madman stuff that happened. On a Sunday, this guest speaker was preaching this really boring sermon - I hate saying a sermon is boring, but this one really was, and this dude was really hammering the boringness in, driving everyone to sleep like mad. And just to save myself, you know before I fall on the floor and start dozing the hell off, I pull out my cell phone joined the religion forum and started typing away right inside the church. If that isn't addiction, NOTHING IS!

      hi Bren, Of course I still go to Church...anyways,the stuff isn't as bad as it used to be when I first got on here. I balance it all out now. Movies and Books help me forget HubPages easily.
