    It's pretty easy actually!

    Hey, if I can play it, anyone can. I refuse to read manuals.... I like to just plug it in and go. And, overall, it's very easy... especially if you just do a little reading and then find a guild to help you through the first part. Some people love the strategy... while others like the socializing. I'm in the latter group.

      ZHeather - yay Mannoroth! Except I'm Alliance . . . but also playing with the love of my life

      I can see how this can be bad for marriages. I'm so lucky, my husband and I both play, so sharing this mutual interest has been really great for our marriage!

        I got sick of Agamaggan, which is pretty much the worst server ever. I was an 80 surv hunter and 80 rogue. Alliance.

        I moved over to Burning Legion which really doesn't seem like it's any better and right now I'm leveling up a belf priest named Maunder if anyone else is on there.

              Hi Everyone,

              I still haven't started playing yet, but I wish I could find the time. Here is a snippet that came out today. I thought it was interesting:

                omg no way! lol

                I can't believe there's actually a whole news thread about Wow. Cool!! :woohoo:

                I think it's been a big part of helping me stay sane while being on disability. Since I don't work, I don't get out much, and it's great fun to get on and play with friends every day.

                Someone was asking if it was hard to learn. In my opinion, there is a LOT, and I mean TONS to learn, but you take it from the beginning and build on it and learn a little at a time, so it's not that bad.

                I have 4 lvl 80's....two horde and two ally, on Hydraxis. But I am still learning things. Actually much of this is due to Blizzard changing everything practically on a weekly basis. lol I've played for about 2.5 years now.

                But for beginners, not too much to worry about. I think it's tons of fun and definitely a diversion from the pain. Except when you get in a raid at lvl 80 and you're playing an important role in the group and you can't get up to go to the bathroom. But I sneak away from time to time. hehe Shh, don't tell my gm.

                Deceptione and Jasmn are my alliance toons
                Felinne and Felyne are my horde toons

                Stop by and say hi!
                Past treatments:
                -3 hydro-distentions/cystoscopys, with addition of medicines. Recovery took forever, wasn't worth the increased pain for several months.

                -DMSO - That was horrible, it caused pain bad enough to make me cry and scream. The urologist told me it worked for everybody, so I must not have IC. Right....needless to say I didn't go back to him. (UPDATE) Just got a small check in the mail, apparently from a law suit. lol

                -Elmiron didn't work. Made me gain 50 lbs. Now just using it in the installation.

                IC Rx:

                Neurontin, Oxybutynin, Darvocet
                Heparin 3cc/Kenalog 1cc/Sensorcaine 20cc, Elmiron pill, works for temporary relief.
