Another American DisorderWednesday, February 15, 2012
The latest soon-to-be disorder: habitual texting, or, sleep texting. People who can’t stop texting, even in their sleep. This is supposedly the consequence of a “busy life.” So now, obsessive, bored, do-nothing teenagers who text all day long are described as having “busy lives?” How about “bored lives?” Note the young girl in the video was on a prescription sedative-hypnotic drug. The very last comment of the story notes that when the young girl stopped taking the drug, the obsessive sleep texting stopped. Yet, the technology is blamed, not the lack of interest in living a quality life, or the pills.
I can’t wait until they come up with a drug that supposedly stops the obsessive texting caused by potent sleeping pills that folks need to take to fall asleep because of the other pills they take (that keep them from sleeping) for all of their other disorders.
Do we have a known disorder for people who have too many disorders?
