The story is about a little girl in the mental ward.  Turns out she lives in VR and has done the same thing multiple times.  She is the basis for AI.

Thanks!

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

Okay, this rings a bell! She was in a hospital room and every so often would figure out that she was in a VR. The nurse would use a trigger phrase to make her go to sleep. When she realizes she's in a VR they bring her down a hall to an... administrator? They explain everything to her and she resolves to escape before they reset her. It was a great story, this is going to drive me nuts!

I'm pretty sure it's "Endosymbiont" by Blake Charlton, Escape Pod episode 280:
