If this is too far OT then please let me know.
 
Any other UC sufferers who also play world of warcraft?
 
Kazygirl - if you saw my earlier reference to wow then let me know and i won't mention it again.

My son is so hopelessly addicted to WOW eyes !  I myself prefer the point and click adventure computer games.  I find that on the days that I am not feeling well that a game takes my mind off things.

Boys and their toys! It must be frustrating when he disappears all the time when you need his support and TLC. Are your symptoms very bad?

they have been...

they seem to be a bit better now... although mornings are still pretty horrible. It doesn't help that he's now emailing with this stupid woman he plays with on Age of Conan.

I swear he's on it from the time he gets home from work to bedtime and then gets up to check the forums. I am going crazy. I give up on stopping him... I give up on quality time.

i think you are within your rights to be totally pissed at your husband and i bet you were less than impressed when you found out that he was emailing a woman about the game - don't know how you put up with it. not sure what the answer is but hopefully he will eventually remember the reasons why he married you in the first place. and no game playng didn't reck my marriage. in fact it was my x who was carrying on online with her 'boyfriend' behind my back! i don't think she liked the idea of being married to someone who couldn't travel as much as she wanted to!

mornings for me are pretty ugly for me too. i have to get up at about 6:15 so that i can get enough BMs in to clear my bowels so that i can make it to work without embarrassing myself! i am grateful that the routine is working at the moment but it means that i don't get to sleep in much.

At one stage there were 3 'boys' hopelessly addicted to WOW in the house. At the moment however, the interest has waned slightly. It did however give me something in common with my two sons which i thought was a posative. One of my son's friends who also plays told me that he wished his father played too!

I think computer games are fine but as long as you don't become obsessed with it. I know that gaming can be like a drug and you can get addicted real easily. My next door neighbor divorced her husband because he was addicted to WOW. He spent all his waking hours on that game and none with her. So I can see how that can be a problem with many relationships.

i'm really sorry and surprised that 'computer gaming' has ruined so many relationships. I have never heard of a woman going overboard before. How about your UC? What is happening with that at the moment?

i was only putting comp games thats why... his xbox broke. He was addicted to COD 4 before it broke and then went to Age of Conan after.

I am currently tryin to fix my marriage because it IS in shambles... specially because that woman he was talkin to... yeah... she writes sex stories. I am so upset it's not even funny.

We have a LOT to talk about when he gets home.. I've been in tears.

Games of today are not like the games of yesterday...in my days we had to contend with Space Invaders, Galaxian, Centipede, Asteroids..then Wheel of Fortune, Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Role playing games Like Kings Quest.

All these games had simple graphics...

But todays games are different, the graphics are life-like with great sound and they are incredibly interactive and engaging. What's worse is that you can have friends join in the fun remotely via the internet, which is something that couldn't be done years ago. Once you're hooked on games like this, it's very hard to break the habit...which is why I don't play them...everything in moderation is cool, but today's games will make an addict out of just about anyone. My vice is cable TV, but even then it's not from sunrise to sunset if you know what I mean.

I've been reading"Men are from Mars - Women are from Venus" and when Dr Grey wrote this, there weren't the computer games around there are today. I am wondering if the cave he uses as his metaphor has become today's computer games

My name is Brian and im addicted to WOW.
There should be support group for us. Even tho its a great way to pass the time when UC excacerbates and feel like crapping all the time. Its a great escape from the everyday drag of work routine. I just cant watch tv all the time like my wife does, she watches so many shows that the DVR can handle. She has her hobby and i have mine. I would rather sit and play WOW than have to watch 99.9% of whats on the TV (ther are exceptions, like House, History Channel, Food Network). Its alot more exciting to be in the action moving ur character around than to just watch it on tv. Escpecially when you play online with others.

my name is steph and im also addicted to WOW. so is my husband.
he spends every waking moment (while at home) playing, so instead of giving him wife 'aggro', i decided to join him.
the first time he asked me to play his toon and level his daggers (about 4 years ago now) i told him it was time to buy a 2nd computer.
so i had a 2nd computer built and now we play together. he sits in the office with me and his comp is right next to mine and we have a blast.
we were always close, but now we have this and it keeps us spending lots of time together.
i never liked computer games at all, but WOW is freakin AWESOME!!!!
I LUV IT!

my husband and i are guild masters of THE DREAD, on the oceanic server jube'thos.
we have 243 members and we have vent and raid together all the time. we talk like old friends and interact together. its great, especially when you cant go out much due to this disease. everyone is nice, if not we g'kick them. (LOL)
i made our guild a website (since im a web designer) and we have forums and i always (in the middle of work) find myself on them.
http://thedread.guildomatic.com/

we even met up with a bunch of them that live locally and went out for drinks. meet lots of nice people, use your brain and it beats mindlessly watching TV. we even read in time magazine that a guy who was a guild master in WOW got a CEO position over 6 other shortlisted people solely because he was a guild master. we have to organise and lead people and delegate and get the right classes together to successfully raid.
its good for the mind and i recommend everyone try it!

with all that being said (yea yea, sorry for gettin carried away), we still always go out and walk on the beach, or fish, or go out to eat and hang out with friends. we never pass up going out. but when we are here, its just too fun!

i have 3 toons and my level 70 is all epic'd out! i luv it.
its so fun and easy to get into.
we have a few girls in our guild as well. not just for guys.
and it has kept us in touch with all our friends that live all over the world and those still in san diego since we moved to australia.
its like we never stopped hangin out. (well kinda)
i know why everyone is addicted. its like a drug.

and all you wives and husbands giving your partners 'aggro', dont be too too mad until you try it yourself. plus they (we) really can't help ourselves. hehe.

but sweetmelody, im not in anyway condoning what your husband is doing. that crosses the line really, especially with sex emails.
emailing and chatting about the game (with a male or female) is one thing, but what he's doing is something not right at all.

anyhoo, yes, i am addicted and it has been a real savior since having this disease. if not for WOW i would have spent the last 2 years staring at the walls (when not on the toilet) or watching crap on TV.
you should all try it. you will like it if you like fantasy stuff.

whoa.. i just saw my post and i freakin wrote a book. sorry.
i got a bit carried away.

but just wanted to mention.. that when i was laid out in bed for 3 months, even though keith plays WOW "all" the time, he still got me food, cooked me dinner, came in and took care of me and was really awesome. always helping and telling me how gorgeous i was (even though i looked and felt aweful).

yeah, just had to throw that in

Steph, it was great hearing about your WOW experiences and a good move getting on board WOW all those years ago! It sounds like it has helped balance out some of the minuses. I am not sure that i like your husband as he has raised the bar awefully high for some of the other husbands out there!

i was gonna say something about verbal diarrhoea but that might sound a bit mean and i am not a mean person!

turn

i have been playing on a US pve server for about 4 years and sometimes the latency sucks. i was talking to a RL friend earlier this week about moving to an oceanic server. will have to give that more thought. his whole family (wife and 2 kids) play. 4 computers side by side! We have 3 but my older son has lost interest for the time being. We each have a level 70 with pvp purples but don't do much raiding. I have turned into a bit of an AH junky as its hard to get groups together when i play during the evenings.

my older son loves to tell me how slow i am, so when you add that to the steroid shakes and the US lag then we are at a real disadvantage on Hyjal. but i might have to wait until the upgrade because i have too much gold to transfer atm - lol.

anyway - i might roll up a character on jube'thos to check out the AH there and say hello.

lol.. and what about the verbal diarhea? did i say too much?

anyhoo.. the oceanic servers lag just as bad. not so much lately, but we had tons of lag in the past.
and server shutdowns and dc's all the time. glad they seemed to have fixed that a bit.
definitely come by and say hi!

Steph, I understood everything you said even though most people who have never played would not.

I played for a very long time (Beta here) and actually just stopped playing again about 2 months ago. I think WoW, or any other type of game, can be a fine recreation, even for couples. For me, I just got bored with it. But I never let WoW affect my life, anymore so than making sure I watched my episodes of 24 did. Casually, but with intensity. There is a way to balance your life and any recreation you have.

Sweetmelody, I am really sorry that you have that going on. It's a true tragedy when any addiction goes that far. I thought you had mentioned counseling before in another thread (I could be wrong), but that might help. But I am sorry that it has gotten to that point.

Looks like there are plenty on either side of the coin.
