I thought I’d tell you about something that happened to me a few weeks ago that you and the community might find amusing. I ended up in the hospital for severe depression and had to stay in the psych ward for about five days. It was quite an interesting experience to say the least, but I found the environment very positive and healing. It can get quite boring after a while just walking around with nothing much to do. On the first day in the eating area I noticed a writing board on the wall with a marker on top. I had missed my daily dose of Cuteoverload.com so I thought, "Why not advertise it in the psych ward? I must spread the joy of the Cute(tm)." Luckily there was nobody around so I quickly wrote out: "Visit the best web site ever! Cuteoverload.com. Get your cute on!" I wondered how long it would stay there before someone erased it. To my surprise, it lasted four days. One of the psych nurses walked in and suddenly stopped in front of the board, looking a bit confused as she read the message. I explained the web site to her and she thought it sounded really good and she said she’d check it out. I asked if she wanted me to erase it but she was really kind and said to keep it up. One other patients made fun of though. A friend I made humorlessly asked if it was "one of those fetish web sites". I explained to them the nature of the web site, but the guy who made fun of it seemed a bit perplexed. (He probably thought I was crazy. But I was in a psych ward for goodness sake, so who cares?) I told them them that I consider visiting the web site Cute Therapy. I visit it about two or three times a day and the rush of cuteness that flows through my body is a powerful sedative for my depression and anxieties. Unfortunately, around the fifth day, a new nurse came onto the ward and told me that patients are not supposed to use the board. The next morning I woke up to find it erased and the marker taken away.
Thank you for providing such an uplifting web site. I’d be interested in hearing other spreading the Word of the Cute stories. It might be difficult to beat mine. Have you considered selling stickers advertising the site? They’d be a great way to quickly stick on objects.
Please keep my name, e-mail address and location anonymous. I don’t want to get sent back to the psych ward for obsessive compulsive Cuteoverload.com disorder (OCCOD).
