this article brought me to tears

Please send your positive vibes/prayers to this courageous teen choosing to end her life. She suffers from a disease that leaves her in constant pain. The only physical strength she has left is in her fingers.. She uses this strength to spend most of her time playing the Sims.

I know I don’t have much of a voice in the simblr community but I do see all the negativity that gets thrown around.

Let this girl be a reminder that The Sims is an escape for everybody who plays. Behind the username and Sim avatar is a person with emotions and a beating heart just like yours. You don’t know what people are going through… The Sims may be someone’s last true Utopia. Dont take that away from them.

Reading her story was so inspiring and then learning she escapes with The Sims just about brought me to tears. I had to share her story with everyone.
