Sarahjane with her “two little geeklings.”

I am 42, and I have been playing RPGs and video games for most of my life.  When I was young, gaming was a way for me to express my imagination, develop my storytelling skills, and build friendships.

As I got older, in addition, gaming helped me to alleviate the stress of school and jobs.  I met most of my college-era friends through gaming, including the man who would become my husband.  It also helped me pick up some marketable computer skills, coding for MUSHes and such.

Now, I am a mother of two special needs teens.  My daughter suffers from depression and anxiety; gaming helps her to manage stress.  My son is on the autistic spectrum; gaming helps him to work on socialization in a relaxing way.  And having fun playing together is something that helps strengthen us as a family.
