I remember your screenname. And I can relate, bro. Back when the original OT wasn't completely destroyed, the OT was there to keep me from feeling completely alone and give me something to look forward to in life. I was semi-isolated when I was growing up. I was put in a situation where I wasn't able to make friends even though I really wanted to. I even lost interests in real life things until recently. In fact, I even enrolled to an online school in 2011 because it's so depressing being at a regular school, not knowing what to do anymore, socially. Things are starting to get better. Getting a job will be a big step that will help me.
Putting real life over the internet is one of my many changes that happened over the years I was seperated from the OT.
