    I guess not addicted.

    My SL... And How Much Chaos It Keeps Bringing To My RL.

    I started playing SL back when i was 17 years old in 2007. I had a baby already and my RL was too messy. My baby daddy would beat me up every day and SL provided an escape from my reality. I never had a decent childhood either being molested as a kid by family members. Sl gave me...
