And now... life?

Ever since I quit playing FFXI, all I've been doing is crying. 24/7. It's not the game I miss. I do miss it, but I don't feel compelled to play.

In fact, I wasn't even sure what I should post here. I don't seem to have a lot of energy to post anything. I feel empty and grey, and in a lot of pain.

I think I'll do this in little steps. Making posts.

A lot of my life is just gone, and I'm very afraid, and have no future. I'm also sad and angry, very mourning, very upset, and very afraid.

A lot of my friends are playing WoW. I have an account but rarely touch it. WoW is boring, which is good.

Without the game, I have restless, unfillfillable, taunting dreams...

Yes, thats one way of looking at it.

There is another: a lot of your life - your time and energy is back. You just donA't know it yet.

Why donA't you allow yourself to discover it, gradually day by day, step by step.

What you think, you create. What you say, you produce. What you do, you call forth more of.

Proto -- don't play any computer games, and try to get a long span of time to go by without *any* games, like Liz says. (I'm on day 14). Shoot for a month straight, cold turkey. Maybe at *that* point, look around and see how things appear *then*. Right now, the future (and probably yourself) appear hopeless and overwhelming... but with enough time with no games, I think that perception can shift. The brain has to re-wire, or something. Hang in there!
