Meh. Another bad day for me so far, but I'm hoping it gets better by tonight or tomorrow.

Yeah, though the thing is, I'm really quitting bingo for good, and won't come back there. I don't want another event like what happened to me ever happening again, so I will not be returning there. But I sincerely appreciate your respect for my decision. I'm sad about quitting the game, but at the same time, at least I will have more free-time to watch longer anime for example.

Same here. :) I mostly enjoy more light-hearted, Slice-of-life type anime, but thanks to the bingo challenge, I delved more into other genre's that I normally wouldn't before. I've also had bad luck when it comes to getting squares from genre's I'm not comfortable with most of the time, like Horror, Ecchi, and Post Apocalyptic/Apocalyptic.

I'm very sorry to hear that. :( One of my cousins has been going through something similiar since she was a teenager, but I don't know all the details on how it affects her.

I imagine things were difficult at times at the previous job, but I guess in the end, it gave you more patience. I know deep down that it is impossible to please everyone, and that I shouldn't worry about what others may think of me (especially online), but I just hate the thought of making others upset without meaning to. It's something that I've been trying to work on for many years now, but it is certainly still difficult to get past that.

Sadly, there isn't any sort of therapy where I'm from, unless it's for children & teens, you're willing to drive 2-3+ hours to and from the therapy buildings, or for those who are severely mentally disabled. Before the pandemic, I've tried to get OT again after so many years without it (long story), but because of me being an adult, the therapists I've encountered around here don't want anything to do with me. They think I'm not "severe" enough, which is utter BS in my opinion, since I actually struggle with many things. But I'll leave it at that, cause I don't wanna go on a tangent lol. I do listen to music and have other coping strategies, but on days like today and the past few days where my stress is much higher than usual, they don't work for long, and in worse case scenario, not at all. 

Thank you, and to you as well. :) Hope you have a lovely week.

Hey OkamiHime! Hope you're doing well! 

I respect your decision. It's good to take a break from the Anime Bingo Challenge once in a while. I'm glad that the Bingo Challenge was a good way for you to relieve stress.

For me, the challenge introduced a lot of genres that I don't normally watch and avoid like the genres: psychological, horror, post-apocalyptic, and thriller. I actually enjoy more lighthearted shows and I assume I get a lot of bad luck getting the genres I avoid on my Bingo card. But it also introduced me to lots of new varieties of short shows that I didn't imagine picking up. 

I hope the break from the forums and the Bingo Challenge will be less stressful for you. I hope it will help you recover your health, and lessen your anxiety.  I am falling behind in my Bingo rank because I'm hoping to recover my health since I'm struggling with non-alcoholic fattty liver disease. Losing weight hasn't been easy for me :( 

I wouldn't stress about the Bingo and technical issue. I definitely understand your situation. I had to help a lot of seniors at my previous job with technology. Technology is definitely not the easiest concept to understand for people. Even if I made a cheat sheet with keyboard shortcuts, not everyone would understand it. It can be hard to please everyone at times. So please don't stress it. I often had to calm down frustrated people at work (mostly customers) because I know they're upset or angry. I just try my best to help them as much as possible. 

My best advice is that I hope you can find some ways that work for you to cope with anxiety and stress. It could even be art therapy, music therapy, etc. I know certain types of music can affect people's moods especially if it's your favorite type of music. 

I wish you the best of luck and hope we keep in touch my dear friend!

Hello. I got an alert that you responded to my comment yesterday. Thank you for caring about me, but I think that it is best that I quit bingo, and take a break from the forums in general for awhile. (Not just because of what happened yesterday, but also due to personal reasons relating to irl issues I've been going through recently.)

I've been playing bingo for almost 3 years, and I've never had any issues with other players or bingo mods before (other than a certain user making fun of the way I rate stuff one year), so my feelings were quite hurt when "you-know-who" got angry with me. I actually did have an anxiety attack when it happened. I have PTSD and one of my triggers relating to it is when someone gets angry with me. I hate making people angry, and am constantly worried that I will make someone upset with my words or actions. :(

I didn't think any of the bingo mods (especially you-know-who) had any issues with me. They've mostly been polite when I make any mistakes, and they didn't make a big deal out of it. Even when my feed was messy/large.

As I've explained to Sabure and Warpuppy before, just because I'm Autistic, that doesn't mean I'm some super genius when it comes to computers, like everyone else in the world. I have to literally type out the links, because copy & pasting just does NOT stick into my head, no matter how many times someone tries to teach me, nor in how many different ways. Same with trying to teach me computer and technology related things. I just cannot process the information, especially since it's of no interest to me. I've tried explaining that to you-know-who like 3 times, but it either seems they don't understand, or they just don't care. Honestly, I dreaded it when my cards wouldn't work, cause I felt too awkward and frustrated to explain the same stuff to you-know-who like I'm now explaining to you.

And because I do have to type links out, I make spelling errors sometimes, especially when I'm stressed. I don't always have the time to check if anime links for example work or not, due to my current lifestyle, my Japanese studies, and my other hobbies/interests. (And that's not even including the daily battle with my anxiety...)

Part of me doesn't want to quit bingo, since it was one of the things that was a stress reliever for me, and I had fun with it until recently. But like I said, I think it's best for my mental health to quit the game, and take a break from the forums until I feel comfortable enough being there again. (I'll still participate in Obscura Yoi, and the anime and movie Secret Santa games, but other than that... *Shrugs*) I don't want to make anyone in the forums upset again, and I no longer want to feel like a burden for the bingo mods.

While I'm glad there is at least one person who wants me to continue playing, I don't want anyone to try and make me come back to bingo. I just can't bear the thought of embarrassing myself if I were to make mistakes again, and I can't stand wondering if I'll ever get yelled at again. :'(

Lastly, thank you again, and I apologize if I made anyone else worried.
