The vile and toxic shit I've been dealing with from outtside of QOTO has put my stress levels to a point I've never expiernced before... It is effectively my health both mental and physical. I am having trouble sleeping, and is very quickly moving from anxiety to depression to a point where it is very dangerous for my health..
My blood pressure is so high right now it would be enough to get me admitted to the emergency room alone.
The really messed up part is if all these lies and toxicity wind up killing me these people are so horrible they would probably dance on my grave....
Frankly im not sure where to go from here. But I do want to say thank you foe the overwhelming support from so many of you, it helps.
This in your profile made me curious:
"Pro-Democracy. Pro-Rights. Pro-Freedom. In that order."
So if it is democratically decided to abolish fundemental rights, you would support it since democracy is more important than rights?
Not trying to give you a hard time, just a fair question about your stance.
