The Internet isn't helping me with my bipolar disorder.

It all started back in 2015. Fall of 2015. I had a favorite YouTuber who posted great videos. But when I dug through her social media, she was complaining about lack of money, her mental status (agoraphobia), and being rude and hostile to others on Twitter. I was repulsed by her shit and pulled my ass back away from her. I eventually moved my ass away from her and found others.

But some of them had other similar traits. Not as bad as the first YouTuber, but had some trouble spots here and there.

There were other YouTubers didn't complain, but lashed back at others. There was a netizen asked about another YouTuber's height, and this YouTuber retorted, "Could you mean the size of your brain because I'm betting it's rather small. I won't be disrespected. Bye.". I didn't get it. It was nothing to be offended about. Even I get ruder messages on Reddit and knows better than lash back like that. Why the fuck she is being bitchy over nothing? She was nice to me on YouTube. We conversed about anime and computers. Why couldn't she ignore like a decent human being? That's being wise.

Well, others didn't lash back, but complained a hell lot. Especially about their financial problems and personal ones.

That's why there's someone who said that idolizing someone can bring disappointments. I wasn't idolizing them; I was just admiring them. I have nothing in Korea. I can travel from places to places, but cannot do any hobbies. I've been to anime conventions in Korea. It's boring. It's not good as the ones in the West. I know that Japan might not put anime as mainstream, but South Korea is nonexistent. This is why I like to watch other anime-loving YouTubers for inspiration I don't need YouTubers who are being jerks. But some knows too better to make a move.

I have bipolar too but posting on this internet forum seems to have had a therapeutic effect on me. Of course, that's partly because I made the effort not to be rude and not to troll. I've never contacted any YouTubers, so cannot relate to that. On a side note, I used to love anime when I was a kid: Ninja Robots, Cardcaptors and DragonBall Z -- are you familiar with any of them?

Yeah. Cardcaptors was pretty good.

I'd say don't bother with youtube or reddit, they throw insults around like confetti and never get moderated for it.

I am certain though if someone was to say something here, say for example if someone went into one of my threads "midnight your a fat ugly bitch" (for example) then that would get edited and they would probably hear from the forum staffs about it. (this is just a example)
