Just a little update I promised you:

I am not hypomanic as I pondered in this post. I am most certainly suffering from “On-line Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder” as sited in a comment from Ruth:

On-line Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

A pervasive pattern of behaviour, present in a variety of contexts and extending over a lengthy period of time, as exemplified by at least four of the following:

1. Blogging after midnight at least four nights a week
2. Revising posts a dozen times before posting
3. Posting material that can only be rendered comprehensible in the context of at least three other blog posts (by self or others)
4. Inappropriate emotional investment in online communications
5. Checking blog for comments at least three times a day
6. Involvement in ‘flame wars’ at least once a week
7. Being responsible for coining at least one one-line neologism (refer to Schizophrenia for differential diagnosis guidelines)
8. (Bonus points) Having said neologism adopted by other bloggers.

    “1. Blogging after midnight at least four nights a week”

    or alternately waking up in the middle of the night at least four nights a week with a hot new idea that can’t wait until morning.
