Please tell I'm not the only one!

  1. Okay, does anyone else do this?

    I log on to this BB and read ALL the new posts in ALL the sections and respond to some. THEN, I refresh the page and read all the posts that have come in while I was in the process of reading things the FIRST time around.

    Tends to take awhile, esp if I haven't been on in a few days but I do it anyway. Am I addicted? :-D

    I myself am very addicted to this site.

    Me too, and it takes a few hours. Sometimes I check in again that evening if I'm really interested in a post. But I learn a lot while I'm here too, and comments made by the people here confirm that I'm not crazy, so I go to work and make suggestions to change things with a bit more confidence.

    Yeah, it's addicting, alright. Last thing I did before leaving for Big Bear was check this thing, and I lasted 48hrs before I went to the Public Library and got on there!!!

    I check the site for new posts at least once a day. If I don't, I feel like I'm missing something. I don't respond too often--mostly just read the posts. I have learned a lot in the short time since I found this board.

    Nah, hey I'm here putting off sanding drywall Not exactly my idea of a fun way to spend my day off work Hey when I am on this bulletin board I can actually say I looked up nursing information when asked what I did all day. Well I guess in addition to the drywall sanding I am going to eventually do, hmm maybe I could find an illness caused by too much drywall dust, jjust kidding.

    It does have a pull to it, doesn't it? I am getting more and more involved. I think that it is professional deprivation-I am the only nurse or medical professional where I work, so there is no one around to bounce things off of, or share our brand of humor with!
    P.S. I always click on the e-mail notification under the message box, and that keeps me up to date on topics I'm especially interested in-

    I've been reading quietly for a while and have just started to get the nerve to post freely.
    Last year, before I found this board, my boyfriend starting going to premed sites, and he got to the point where he could spend hours at a time just reading and posting...several times a day. I had to kick him off just to check my email for five minutes and then he would be right back on. I kept asking him: "why in the world do you do this??? Have you gone completely insane??Is there nothing better for you to do with your time??"...

    Now, HE has to kick me off the computer so he can check his message boards. I'm constantly hearing: "Any chance I can use the computer now?"
