I need to clean the house and take bath but I can't stop writing hubs, editing hubs, reading hubs, playing farmville, checking email, writing on blog etc. etc.
Is anyone else having the same problem?
I was supposed to find my mortgage insurance application and submit is February 22, so that the insurance could take over while I am unemployed... I found it today after a self-imposed three day hubcation in which I kept coming back, you know o vote, chat build a web site, do a hub work on a blog...
No my house is a wreck, and my cats are fed, I have no problems, none at all. Want to go to fubar? Yeah I'll buy you a drink and we can forget all about it!
Ha ha. My nephew has a similar problem. Some times he needs to pee, but he doesn't want to stop playing with his toys and ends up peeing in his pants. We explain that he can return to playing as soon as he finishes the more urgent task. I hope this helps
well, I haven't actually peed my pants, yet . . . close, but not actually! I used to do that when I was a kid. watch the little boy closely, he may be a budding obsessive compulsive and that is not a very good thing, I admit! : altho, we do get a lot done. it just depends on what I get a lot done of!
it happens to all of us, especially at first.
sometimes I just log out and x the tab so I'm not tempted to browse the forums...
Ha! Do I?!!!!! Does a chicken have feathers? I can't finish anything.
YOU TOOK THE WORDS OUT OF MY MOUTH! YES IT HAS BECOME OBSESSIVE. i need pc rehab ha ha ha my name is joe and i'm a _______( whats the name for this)a screenface,pc junky,wonk,geek,info junky hey lets start something here. whats the name and the solution. real hub!
Yes, I have been on this system since 1:00 P.M. It addictive.
I have been considering getting a chamber pot so I don't have to get up at all! and then if I could get someone to just bring me food and take the plates away - oh, and a basin to brush my teeth. it is bloody hell to shut down at night when my eyes are so bleary I can't see - that's how bad it is!
I used to have a life!
Now I can't move off my chair. The weather is hot and sunny outside - well obviously not NOW as it's 1am, but during the day it is. I know because I do push myself to have a life, and go out most mornings for an hour or so, but not every day!
Rest of the time, I am here. My poor wee plants are dying from lack of water, because I can't spare the time to go water them!
My poor husband is left to his own devices - he's so jealous of the attention I give the laptop that I can't leave it in his possession so have to take it with me if I go out.
That's my excuse anyway
And I'm sticking to it!
Some-times I don't even get to put a brush through my hair or get out of my PJ's til lunch when I get ready to head out.
Hokey if you were here I wouldn't get a brush through my hair til dinner time.
that's me but I have no where to head so I just stay on the computer
Well , I'm kinda in and out - with my mother in laws altzheimers - I don't really have a choice but to get up when she needs changed and fed and stuff - but my prob is when I'm on here I'm kinda like - in the forums and not writing, I really need to quit that and start writing again Forums are addictive So many fun people to chit chat with that I can't shut up and write
I was semi addicted, then as most things in my life it got boring I'm in a book reading mode now. Just taking a few minutes to check out the forums.
I think people become addicted because like any child - they don't want to miss out on anything, if you leave your FB account alone for a week or stop coming to the Hub Forums, changes do occur & you might miss out!
I need to do my two spring break papers and finish programming project, but I can't get off the computer.
You'd think I'd use that to make more hubs but no. I'm such a lazy bum (though I did make a lens and a gather article today and did some language studying...but I should have had time for a hub. Hmm..There's still some time left in the day, maybe I'll make one)
I should be making dinner for me and hubby but can't pull myself away...I also should be packing more but eh...just not in the mood for that right now
I actually did log off and got a pop tart. Now I'm back. :}
I finally showered and ate a snickers bar, but I didn't stay off long.
its 2 here ... uh insomnia or hubsomnia sucks and i have been letting my games on fb go downhill lol so spent a lot of time on them last night hehe im addicted to it all
Yeah I was doing research and lost track of time.
don't forget to go to bed so you can get up tomorrow morning and turn the computer back on. take your meds first thing, then take a shower. turn on the computer after you're dressed and make breakfast while you check your email. after you've eaten you may check the forums but then you must read the new hubs! then you can think about writing your own hub...but check the forums first...
it's a never ending cycle....
I take a shower first thing in the morning after the kids are off to school and I have a cup of coffee, so the answer to that is nope, I bathe before I type.
I needed to get off the computer to clean the kitchen, the only reason I did is because my computer shut down on me. I guess it need a break from me.
I need to go to bed but I can't get off the computer. ITS 5 AM!! DAMN!!
My wife threatens me with a frying pan if I don't get some work done around the house. If I made some money at this maybe she would be understanding. Well, I guess the head injuries will continue for a while.
With respect to getting off the computer, some times you just have to stop to smell the roses.
Best of luck.

Lately I have no computer and I only go to the library. When I had one at home I found myself online and this was my favorite website. Besides facebook and email, whatever.So, it was easy for me to indulge in everything, forums, reading, writing.But lately I'm glad I have no computer at home, not...

I am reviled yet my forums create all kinds of participation. I like and I am not going anywhere!There are some who indicated a boycott to not speak ever on what I write. They are writers heretics. I bless them and invite them to stay away. This is not written for you.Writers here are often...

* They sometimes drown out the hubbers with genuine queries, criticisms, and concerns.* There really is no excuse for wandering off-topic and being uncivil. * If you say that you're leaving HubPages, then fail to do it, you have zero credibility in my opinion.(Maybe I should just take a break from...

I'm really new. I was a teacher for 14 years, was laid off in June and I started journaling to relieve some stress. I have always loved to write, and I got this crazy idea that I should join hubpages to learn from other great writers.I don't care about earning, if it were to happen great, but the...
