Friends, I have discovered to my dismay, that I succumbed to an obsession that no doubt captivates and seduces many on a daily basis.
It’s the first think I think about in the morning and the last thing I want to see at night. I use it numerous times in the day and it’s a right pain in the neck.
I am <hangs head in shame> addicted to my iPad to the extent that I am rarely parted from it.
It’s too damned easy to access; instead of doing my morning pages, I reach for it, I don’t even have to get out of bed to access it, it plays my music, and I take it with me wherever I go just in case I need to look something up.
Yes, I do have an iPhone too, but that’s not the same and I can’t see stuff properly now that I suffer from ‘old lady sight’ aka long sight, and need to keep getting out my reading glasses in public.
Yes, I know, Sexy!
And, FFS, I even look at it intermittently whilst watching TV! So this addiction is even interfering with my other addictions! Shocker!
Apart from having up to date information at my fingertips at any given time, I know one of the main reasons I’m driven to pick it up time and time again.
And it’s tres embarrassing. It’s to check how many likes and follows I have on here and on Facebook.
Refresh page, refresh page, refresh page…..
And as much as iLove you all (clearly love it when uLove me back), and appreciate everything you do for me, I now have to remind myself that I should not be using this blog as a ‘real life’ substitute, or let it enable me to procrastinate from getting back out there into the big wide world like I did this weekend.
Bad sista 😦
Also, I’m pretty sure that gazing down at it all the time is doing my neck injury no good whatsoever, so this dangerous addiction is not always an exercise in meLove either….
So, I am now limiting myself to two check ins a day including when I post.
OK maybe three.
Hey addictions aren’t cured overnight!
One day at a time, sweet Jesus….
