I told you earlier this week about the young lady who almost fell into the Grand Canyon while trying to take a selfie and we all know stories about people who have put themselves in dangerous positions while trying to get that perfect selfie.  Apparently they aren't responsible for their poor judgement, they have a disease.

Selfitis Is A Real Selfie Disease: The National Herald claims The Institute of Medical Sciences is treating four to five people a day for Selfitis. The selfie disease is a mental condition where people feel compelled to continually post pictures of themselves on social media.

Pediatrician Piyali Bhattacharya says, "If a person takes more than three selfies in a day and posts them on the social media, then he or she is suffering from Selfitis. They slip into depression if the selfie they post on social media does not get the required appreciation or 'likes'. This is an advanced stage of digital addiction. The youth are losing their sleep, their work abilities are slowing down and they are also alienating themselves from friends, relatives and family.''


Have you been injured, done something foolish or put yourself in a compromising position while trying to take that perfect selfie?  I preach this all of the time; ALWAYS BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS!
