Several months ago suffered a severe spinal injury. I have always been fit and led an active lifestyle. I've now found myself barely able to walk, sit upright, and suffering from almost constant chronic pain. As time wore on I started to suffer depression which is common in most cases. Most days I am stuck flat on my back, under pain medication, with nothing to do but watch television, read, surf the internet and play WoW . As the depression grew I reached out for things to occupy my mind other than "OMG, I'm crippled and this hurts! My life as I know it is over!" and started playing a lot more WoW. I love it. It takes my mind of my mind as I say. My therapist also thought I was a good move. He officially endorsed my focusing on WoW as part of my recovery and coping. He has also worked with PTSD in returning soldiers and WoW has been beneficial to them as well.
