New disorders (everyone get your own!)

Do you suffer from an addiction? Are you pre-disposed?
I recently came across a website (might have been a blog, I don't remember) that listed new addictions. I also heard a radio story on it. Here's the list -


Facebook Addiction Disorder (FAD)
Youtube Addiction Disorder (YAD)
Google Search Addiction Disorder (GSAD)
Widget Addiction Disorder (WAD)
Twitter Addiction Disorder (TAD)
Blackberry Addiction Disorder (BAD)
Mac Addiction Disorder (MAD)

I don't know about you, but we have identified some addictions from observations made in our home. Here they are,

DVR Addiction Overload Disorder (DAOD) - Recording 10 hours of TV in one day that you plan to fit into 1 hour at night. Something inherently wrong there, hmmm....

Potato Chip Withdrawl - Okay this isn't a disorder, but it is still going on around here...

Wii Addiction disorder (WiiAD) - 'nuff said. See my earlier Wii addiction post.

Bargain Addiciton Disorder - This is when you buy stuff because it is a "good deal" without any real use for it.... It doesn't really happen around here, just sayin...

How about you? What disorders are you currently facing in your home?

TattooedMinivanMom said...

I think everything is some sort of disorder or "syndrome" these days. Don't worry. I'm sure the pharmaceutical companies will come up with a pill for what ails you soon ;)

So funny! And yes, I have a few of those addictions, plus an addiction to using spray paint for trash to treasure projects. Hope the fumes aren't killing too many brain cells!

the planet of janet said...

oh, i totally am a bejeweled-blitz-aholic, which is a byproduct of FAD.

i'm a hopeless case, too. there are no 12-step programs for this one.

I LOVE it when SITS features bloggers I already know and enjoy.
Sorry I missed your day.
I was out of town!

WWTTAD - Wondering Where the Teens Are Disorder and why the house is so darn quiet. Congrats on being a SITS blog.

Maureen said...

I'll take your FAD and one up you, MWAD (Mafia Wars Addiction Disorder). I've also been developing some FVAD (Farmville Addiction Disorder). I never play video games, except on Facebook and they aren't even particularly fun games!

Juliet Grossman said...

Definitely got a little FAD going on. There is a sub-category of FAD for looking at people's pictures. Oh, and what about randomly looking for funny or odd videos on You Tube?

piecemeal people said...

My husband suffers from Blackberry Addiction Disorder - most definitely. He now has TWO, and either one or both are constantly giving off one alert or another. So far I have managed to stay away from Facebook, though I'm pretty sure it'll be a huge problem for me if I ever do sign up. Which is why I haven't.

Stopping by from SITS, a little late!

Gigi said...

I definitely suffer from blog addiction disorder. And, I never was much for texting or my cell phone, but over the last few weeks,as my life has been in upheaval, I have my phone on me ALL the time. There's always someone checking in. So there you have it, BLAD (blog) and BAD (blackberry). I like your WiiAD. I think my son has that for sure!
