I can relate to what you are saying and I honestly think that the Internet should be classified as an addictive substance. Sometimes I find myself up until the early hours of the morning just pottering around, reading an article here, talking to someone there, playing a quick game... It all adds up to a HUGE amount of time which could be spent more productively.

hi zz1111... first of all, i want to welcome you into this community... i will suggest that you take a break and give your eyes a rest... it is not worth it if you ruin your eyes just for the sake of mylotting... you will have to spend lots of money to repair the damage in the future... take care and have a nice day...

I have been on Mylot at all hours of the night just trying to catch up on all of the discussions.. I have been so tired that I couldn't type and when this happens, I usually just make myself quit and resume the typing another day..

Yes. You should try and get some more sleep. That is what I had to do this morning. I only spent 1 hour on myLot. I was so tired and I got off... I will stay on it for 2 to 3 hrs today.. Yes, please get some rest and take care of yourself..

i take care always myself but sometimes i can't refused myself to post many comments here specially if it catches my interest. so far within my 4 months period staying here posting my discussions and comments, i enjoyed the moment and my eyes so active although i felt tired if i sleep only 3 hours in a day that is why i try to find time to take a nap every afternoon.

I know exactly what you mean, I too get so wrapped up here that the time slips by and before I know it bedtime has come and gone and then I have trouble getting up the next morning. My eyes do get so sore somedays, and gritty I need to spend less hours concentrating so much on here but I just cannot seem to cut down my time.

Last night and into the wee morning hours it was for me the internet and also a late night radio program called Coast to Coast.. I am hoping that you got more sleep than I did as I did not go to bed until 4 a.m. as today is my day off. Now, I am on myLot most of the morning responding to friend's discussions as I have not done that for awhile as I have been busy responding to people in my own. I am glad to be here to visit yours. I am hoping you get some sleep today.

You are not blinking enough. Get in the habit of taking your eyes off the computer screen and learn to blink!!

hi, zz1111, Thanks for your concern. I know it's hurtful when we stare at the monitor or LCD screen for long time. Besides, it's not good for our posture too as we tend to remain in a posture for too long will also hurt our body.

I too am online for ages. I easily clock up 6hours in a session each day. Not particularly good when i have lots of things i have to do but i always get carried away and before i know it theres a huge rush to get things done.

Internet is very addictive thing and I think we should be disciplaned while using the internet. I was having this problem a while ago, my schedle was all messed up and I didn't able to concntrate on other areas of my life. As of now still I m struggling but lot better. So zz1111 have a nice and sound sleep.

Yeah I get sore eys and I feel tired if I spend too much time on the computer. My neck hurts too. It is really bad! Do you do exercises to relieve your body from the symptoms of staring at the computer screen for too long? it helps to look away and focus on something else in the room for a while. Also sitting with your back straight and turning your neck to each side every now and then. When we are at the computer our chins are pushed out. This causes neck pain. Try to remember to keep your chin in, sit up straight and most importantly take a break every half an hour!

I have always been told that it is best to take a break at least every hour or so to give your eyes a break.

We all experience this at times being on here. I have been known to get up in the morning to check emails and still be in my dressing gown at lunchtime, ooops and yes my eyes then get sore. Take a break and come back refreshed is the advice I give myself and to you. Ellie :D
