Now to add an "update"...I know I've been on the allnurses site for too lonf BECAUSE it is 3:05 AM and I just spelled "long" with an "f" instead of a "g"..............AND because I am sitting here with one eye closed so as to focus my blurry eyes better ( and because my husband just said "GO TO BED!":zzzzz

    This may not apply here but, I'm severely addicted so...

    You know you're addicted to Allnurses when...

    ...You're getting your last fix in (reading as many posts as possible) before leaving on a week-long trip where there will be no internet, while your hubby is standing nearby looking at his watch and tapping his foot and you're excuse is "honey, I'm just trying to wake up!"

    ...you're trying to figure out how in the world you're gonna survive the week without your hourly AN fix and what you're gonna do with all that free time...

    218. You look for your posting buddies and feel giddy when you see a green light by their name.

    219. You come home utterly exhausted from work yet you find the extra energy to check in and then spend an hour online.

    220. You wonder at work how your AN posters would handle a situation.

    221. You wish you worked with some of the fantastic and insightful posters.

    222. Consider selling your car to buy yourself a premium membership

    I am guilty as charged on all 5 counts above

    I am getting addicted to Allnurses.

    In real life, I find myself talking about the stories and discussions here as, "Oh, there's this nurse I talked to who said..."

    I feel like a creep lol
