You're welcome.

I also need some wishful thinking because I wanna get out of my job and my apartment.

Apparently Demi Lovato overdosed on heroin.

Hi, Nina!

Yeah, I heard. It's awful. I was hoping that she had recovered from those problems she had years ago. I'm glad that she's alive and getting medical care.

Hi, Arinna! I hope you got some sleep.

I only ever saw her in one thing, that Disney movie she did with Selena Gomez "Princess Protection Program" (2009). I thought that was really cute though. I don't really know what the story behind her addiction is, it sounded like she's self-medicating depression/anxiety disorder? The comments on twitter were partially sympathetic but some were really vile, I don't even know.

I think she suffered from anxiety and body image disorders, but I didn't think that her rehab was due to drugs back then. She admitted herself into a rehab clinic for depression, but I didn't think she had a drug problem.

I hate it when people make cruel comments when someone is struggling with a disorder or depression.

The rehab a few years ago was about alcohol, oxycodon and cocaine use from what I gleaned.

It's this merciless black and white thing I have a hard time with: "She didn't need to take the drugs. I have no sympathy." – and I'm like well, it's true that we all make choices but often I'm just not so sure how free we are to make them. Say in this case, I don't know... I do think that there is such a thing as being predispositioned to addiction or certain types of addiction. Then with depression and anxiety there's a lot of chemical imbalance in the brain thrown into the mix. Generally, I just wish people treated each other with more compassion. I suppose I get where some people are coming from who have lost friends or family to drug addiction, a place of frustration and helplessness. But yeah there are some actual trolls there... idek.

Oh wow, she was doing drugs and alcohol back then too?

See, I think a lot of people today are becoming way too judgmental because of Twitter and Facebook. The slightest infraction or impropriety is blown way out of proportion like some kind of Cardinal sin or something. You're right, some people are predisposed to addiction due to chemical imbalances, which can also result in depression. It would be nice if people were more compassionate, but social media makes that very difficult these days, sadly.

That's another thing I have hard time understanding but I think that's a generational thing because we didn't grow up with Facebook. I talked to a friend about this ... like these days everybody seems very unconcerned about attaching his/her real name to things ... so yes, it's the internet and I don't really know who you are but still, I'm sometimes really baffled: I totally got why would attract trolls in fandom matters and whatnot, it's only a username after all, but on twitter and Facebook people go out there with profiles that have their real idenity attached to it and say such crass and unkind things. That really throws me, you know?

Oh, the generational thing. That's another thing that gets me. This generation is often referred to as "snowflakes," hypersensitive, overly-politically correct brats who react to things like "micro-aggressions" and "trigger words" and things that no sane, rational person would think are the least bit offensive, yet at the same time they take to Twitter and Facebook and attack people from a safe distance for any infraction, real or imagined, and show no compassion or mercy. And yeah, like you said, they used to hide behind anonymous usernames, but now they don't even bother.

I'm sorry I disappeared, Nina. I started to fall asleep and I had to get up for work early.
