I'm done with myLot

Today it's taken a little toll on me for time. This is my Monday Kickstart challenge day, and last week it took me just over an hour to complete my challenge. Today it took me two hours. However, I was doing it solely from my cell phone today so I couldn't put the time down. Only able to do one thing at a time and on such a small screen is difficult. Yet, I got through the 35 discussions, and I commented at least that much, in addition to responding to a few other comments on those same discussions. Now my eyes hurt and I have a bit of a headache so I'm going to call it a day on mylot, at least until this evening. I know that I will need to deal with notifications at some point.

I only use my computer. I wouldn't like a tiny screen.

@CoralLevang I've not tried using mylot on my phone but I doubt it's comfortable or easy on the eyes.

@lovebuglena it's difficult, at best. And the fact that I'm over the age of 60 it doesn't help on my eyes! But I'm happy to have it on my phone because my computer is not well

Reading the title, I thought you are done here forever. Good to know that it is just for the time being.

That's what I thought, too! Glad you are only done for the day! I've been on a little break from mylot, too, since I wasn't online much the last couple of weeks. I don't like using the mobile site much, although it's pretty good, because it's just such a pain typing the words on my phone and getting the right ones to come up!

@fluffysue it is why I use the voice activation. On your cell phone instead of typing down at the left hand bottom corner you should have a little microphone. I still have to go back and edit from time to time, but it makes it easier for me

@coralevang I am sorry about the headache. Sunday night my head felt funny. Not really a headache but felt weird. It eventually went away. I took two Tylenol's, so maybe it was a headache just no severe! My sister said t relax and have a snack. Se wasn' sure if I ate enough that day. So I did have a snack per her email response!

@Marty1 stuffed peppers are the yummiest!. I used to love them when my mother would make them when I was a little girl. I thought they were something special because they had their own little dish

I will have to stay a month of inactivity on Mylot. This is because I will come hospitalized in a rehabilitation community far more than 200 kilometers from my house. Therefore, I will not be available to the PC, for the dwell time.

@alberello75 then it's time to get help, and it's time to do what you can for yourself. I have psychological problems myself and it's learning how to deal with them. There is no quick fix definitely. I wish you the best

It is meant to be something pleasurable, not a trial. Notifications are set at stupid levels by default, perhaps you need to turn some off...

I think you've misunderstood. This is about the five by five Kickstart challenge and the difference between last week and this week in how I was accessing it. However, I appreciate your response, because I think that it will help a lot of other people. I have most my notifications turned off. Thank you so

When you say "I got through the 35 discussions" do you mean those by others, discussions you've posted over a period of time, or that you've published 35 discussions today?

Rather than try to explain it here, if you go to last Monday and today's article about it as well it will tell you about what I call the kick-start challenge. I'm starting this on Mondays to get my week rolling.

I prefer my notebook screen to my cell phone screen. I have a decent smart phone & a tablet, but why suffer on smaller screens, when I can work on a big screen?

Since I don't have the luxury of having a tablet, and my desktop or laptop are not working well, then I am relegating to doing certain things on my smartphone 50% of the time.
