Doing Things that might sound bad

I hate that I had to unfollow someone. He has Schizophrenia, and I started talking to him when I read his blog, but right now he is posting has become irrational. I know it’s a part of his disorder, and  still read his blog. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I had to unfollow him bc his blog is making my own symptoms flare up. I still hate it though.

    I unfolllowed someone with severe mental illness because they were posting a lot of really bizarre, disturbing, incoherent shit and I had my doubts about its veracity. There are a lot of trolls out there so it wouldn’t surprise me if there are trolls on WordPress who are pretending to have illnesses and making up stories about their lives.

  3. If someone is doing something that’s negatively affecting your mental health, you have to do the best thing for you. You know how much I love Final Fantasy VII? I’ve had to unfollow most of the pages dedicated to it on Facebook, because of reasons that affect my mental health/well-being. Gamers aren’t always the most woke and informed bunch, and they often use language and terms that are shit for people in my position. Even if you still like and support something or someone, you HAVE to put your health and well-being to the forefront. It’s not selfish or if it is, it’s selfish with the purpose of self-preservation.

    Agreed. But I didn’t know you had to unfollow a bunch of stuff. And unfortunately it’s not just gamers who don’t know how to treat people like humans. The whole of this society just… well, sucks (I could have used a more venomous word, but I decided to be nice).

  5. I agree. Because games are considered a bastard medium, people don’t think their narratives matter, even some gamers, so they’re more likely to say shit like “It’s just a game!” in the same way others might say “It’s just a movie/book/etc,” not realizing that just because a narrative is fictional, the feelings about it are still real.
