My best friends wife is addicted to Farmville, Bedazzled and some other facebook 'games.' When she couldn't access facebook recently she scared the
crap out of myself and a couple of friends - I'd never seen her so pissed off, we all thought that something horrific had happened, but no, she just
couldn't play Farmville.
She's also depressed, can barely hold down her job and has the amazing ability to make everyone around her also feel miserable, which is why I don't
spend much time at their house anymore. I tried to help her, but she's not interested in listening.
I can't help but think that the constant, repetitive and ultimately pointless act of playing these games is a contributory factor in her depression,
and it's also a huge waste of time. I wonder how many brain-hours are wasted playing these games?
