Addict thread

I was looking for the recent thread about myfico.com addiction, but I don't remember which forum it's in.

 

It's past midnight here, and I have to wake up at 5am to get ready for a 12-hour shift. I can't seem to get myself off of my computer. I find myself searching for new topics that may pertain to my situation. I am sitting here thinking of new thread topics, even though for now, all my questions are answered. I keep checking SW for notifications. I even found myself looking through the auto loan forum, and I don't really have any business over there. I need help. Badly. But I guess this itch is better than an app itch. *sigh*

Re: Addict thread

Ravens fan-
Thanks fir the giggle. I can very much relate. I am done now..27 negatives removed thanks to MyFico.com LOVE YOU MYFICO!
If not for a few very talented members I would not be moving on to home buying but I keep lingering back to what I know "rebuilding your credit" I find the new area intimidating just like when I started. The whole idea of buying a house scares me to death.
I have taken 3 classes on the practice of buying but am still intimidated.. Any thoughts?

Thanks Lightnin!

Lasardo, I want to be where you are. I'm aiming for next May. Just hang in there. Buying a house is big. And I'm sure you'll be fine. You will always have the support of the awesome people on this forum. Good luck with everything! And congrats on your credit accomplishment!

Re: Addict thread

I did write a 12 step program for Ficoholics, but it was so long ago it has been deleted from the history!

The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
