Today's problem: dependency. I was going to say co-dependency, but after researching I find that isn't quite the right diagnosis. See, co-dependency is defined as "unhealthy love and a tendency to behave in overly passive or excessively caretaking ways that negatively impact one's relationships and quality of life" (Thanks Wikipedia.) Whereas dependency is defined as ": something that is dependent on something else" (Thanks Merriam-Webster.)
I thought I was co-dependent because I have devolved into this kind of gamer who doesn't want to play unless someone else is online and I can talk to them while playing. But that's not co-dependency, it's just normal old dependency! See how mentally healthy I am!?

What is wrong with me?! I used to play alone! It used to be enough for me! I've been spoiled by Xbox Live and readily available friends, and now I've been ruined by Xbox Live and friends many time zones away from me.
