    Ok, addict isn't the word really.

    I do like it tho. Those days when paralysis hits or some other reason I can't get out of bed I'm on mobile grid or in my chair on SL. I'm just addicted to playing Barbie!

    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...
