WhatsApp, Doc?

whatsappA woman has actually injured herself after using WhatsApp on her phone for six hours. Her doctor diagnosed her with a case of “WhatsAppitis,” which is a condition of sore wrists suffered after excessively using the WhatsApp text message service. It’s thought she’s the first to suffer form it, but she won’t be the last. Here are some other ‘diseases’ that might be on the way thanks to our social network addictions:

• The Twitches – The feeling that you cannot sit through an event without compulsively tweeting about it.

• Instagramorexia – A phenomenon where you can’t eat your food until you post the photo.

• Obsessive Refresh Disorder – The compulsive urge to refresh your Gmail.

• SiDS (Sudden iPhone Death Syndrome) – A disease associated with people who believe they charged their phones … but did not actually charge their phones.

• ADCCD (Attention Directed to Candy Crush Disorder) – An inability to focus on anything that is not Candy Crush. (TheDateReport)

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
