EverQuest Widows Unite! (tm)
EverQuest Widows is a forum for partners, family, and friends of people who play EverQuest compulsively. We turn to each other because it's no fun talking to the back of someone's head while they're retrieving their corpse or "telling" with their guild-mates as you speak.
The Wids(tm) are here to support each other, and to discuss the trials and tribulations of living in Real Life while our loved one is immersed in EverQuest.
EQ players recovering from compulsive game play are welcome to the forum. You may also be interested in www.olganon.org, Online Gamers Anonymous, created by Liz Wooley, one of our Wids. For EQ defenders -- please understand that we are here to support each other, not to argue with you. "It's not the game's fault," "Why don't you play the game yourself," "EQ is not addictive, it's just fun" -- we've heard it all. And lots of us DO play EQ! So if that's why you're here, don't be surprised if your posts don't show up.
This list is moderated for new members and new posters. Your message may not show up for a day or two (we go as fast as we can!).
Hope to hear from you soon --Laura, EQWids(tm) Founder June 2000
