  4. My name is Keala and Ksets is the first username i ever used in a gaming forum so thought it was a good one to use here. I am a physician that specializes in pediatric critical care and have been out of my training for some time now. I always told myself that i wasnt addicted to video games because i was able to successfully navigate my way through undergrad, medical school, residency, fellowship and the first 15 years of my career post training all while gaming. I have come to realize that i have missed out on a lot and I am working on being more mindful of my time in the present and future. Gaming was always my de-stressor, if bad things happened in the ICU then I immersed myself in world of warcraft or swtor or whatever was on my phone and handy for a few days after coming off call. It seemed ok and appropriate at the time but i know now that i missed out on valuable time with family and with myself. Day #1 without gaming Gratitude journal Today I am grateful that i found this resource. One amazing thing that happened/I did today I registered for this site.

  5. hello and thanks for the forum. I am a 47 year old who has been playing video games well pretty much since they were created. I am currently seeing a counselor/therapist who specializes in mindfulness practice and he recommended i look into this community. thank you in advance for the opportunity and support.
