Net Surfing-ADD

I’ve just discovered that I have a dreadful condition that I was only vaguely aware of before.  I call it NS-ADD (Net Surfing-Attention Deficit Disorder.)  Someone else has probably already given it a different name, but that’s what I’m calling it.  This illness is most unusual for me.  Normally I have supreme powers of concentration, almost trance-like at times.

I think I have discovered a cure.  I liken surfing-the-net to racing down the interstate at 70 mph to arrive at an exotic destination.  I want to see everything, but yet I am in a neurotic rush to arrive.  When I finally take the off-ramp, 35 mph seems little better than a four-limbed drunken crawl.

After I’ve checked my e-mail, read the latest headlines, consulted the weather, plotted my horoscope, watched a few YouTubes and increased my Christmas Wish List, I am ready to read my favorite online e-mags.  At least, I think I’m ready, but I am not.  I am still suffering from a sense of accelerated speed, callous indifference to any slow build-up, and Wow-Me with every word syndrome.

My Cure: Ultra Simplistic, no pills, no treatment – I log on to the e-mag, get up, walk around, breathe, and perhaps gazed at some Monet (my fave) or listen to some Bach (I do like techno these days, but that does not have the same affect.)  And then, only then, am I ready to READ.  Until this moment of tranquility arrives, I am utterly incapable of giving the craftsmanship a fair assessment.

Does anyone else suffer from this condition???
