My favorite coping mechanism is bitching. Oh I try to fix my problems, to be sure. But I also like to commiserate.
Unfortunately, more often than not that just makes me unhappier than ever these days. I shared my previous post in an LJ community in an attempt to share humor, and while some folk did indeed find it amusing, others just wondered what the hell I was QQing about.
I get a lot of “Well I don’t have that problem.” M’kay. Cool for you! I did struggle a lot in some heroic 5 mans, and it vexed me enough that I’m still frustrated at the mere idea. In strange cases where I find myself solo healing several people taking damage (that first 2-heal OS run where poor Contego kept dying, for example) I nearly give myself a heart attack.
Is it wrong that I wish to have it a bit easier when shit hits the fan? Is it wrong that I want to have a few more tools at my disposal? Am I just a terribad healer who needs to shut up and sit in the corner? Is it my gear? I don’t think so, for all that I have more mp5 than many others, I am not low on crit, or int-I just happen to have ended up with all this crazy mp5 gear. Mach was trying to help me boost crit without losing too much of my mana regen, so if I’m nuts I have good company. Am I mistaking my boredem for a problem with the class? Am I playing in some alternate reality?
Man, I really just need to level my priest.
