So, as some of you may know, my computer had a virus and was in the shop for a while. I had to get some files off of it for school, so I used a flash drive....lucky me, the files I needed for school happened to be some of the ones that were affected. Found that out after spreading the virus to every computer in my immediate family. Whoops. SO, I have been computerless for what seems like forever, and therefore away from DTA. Thought I would share with you how I went through DTA withdrawals so you other addicts know what to expect should you be faced with a welcome(or unwelcome) DTA intervention. 1) You may experience a sudden need to flood conversations with random dog experiences. *Note: Coworkers may now refer to you as "The Weird Dog Lady" and avoid all contact with you. 2) Any time someone mentions their dog you may latch onto them and babble their ears off with inquiries and discussion about training and behavior, much like a recovering alcoholic may suck a bottle dry without realizing it. *Note: This may also contribute to your new nickname. 3) Random occurrences may bring thoughts of, "OH I HAVE TO TELL [insert DTA friend's name here]!" followed by small periods of depression for missing these friends. 4) You may experience some drooling and anxiety when you come in contact with a computer, as well as temptation if that computer happens to be at work. This may be followed by frustration upon discovering that the work computers do not allow navigation to such websites. 5) Any new tricks or events pertaining to dogs may make you feel like you are going to burst without telling someone... *Return to #1 and go through all of this again. 6) You have now officially become known as "The Weird Dog Lady" to all coworkers and friends, as well as a small percentage of the general public. I'M BACK!!!!!
