I’m not a Doctor or a Doc but It seems there are some real or imaginary conditions in the yo-yo world. Maybe others can be helped if we identify these conditions and get the victims to the first steps of recovery - admission…
List Disease, Syndrome, or Behaviorand provide a definition…Let’s identify em’. If we can save just one Yo-Yoer!
Daytrippin’ - Belief that if you check BST constantly you will find a desired model that has been sold out forever and no one wants to part with. Of course you are only interested in one particular color way and at a give away price.
Full - Empty Syndrome - Constantly finding your pocket full of Yo-Yos but your wallet is always empty.
Triggered Syndrome - When someone on the forum says something another doesn’t agree with and takes it as a personal attack, sending the original topic completely off the rails with a lengthy back and forth until the mods have to lock it down because the original topic has now been completely lost.
There is a less severe version of Triggered Syndrome which is related to Diaper Rash. The good news is there is an ointment. The bad news is if it occurs enough the patient can have permanent Ego damage.
Repetitive Throwing Disorder (RTD)- repeating the same tricks over and over again without getting better at them while also refraining from learning new tricks usually because they are difficult and outside your comfort zone
Holy-cow! What about throwers arm/elbow? My arm got so sore from throwing so much!!!I had to lay-off throwing for 3 weeks…… Not to mention my beat-up hands……&forearms? I get bruises, marks, or bloody places on my arms…
Kool-aidiosis - Otherwise known as “the shutters” when after purchasing a yo-yo, you continue to search for positive online reviews as an attempt to validate your ill-advised purchase and selling the yoyo only infects someone else.
