Truth be told, sometimes social media can be as toxic as a manhole. Often times we find overly harsh or simply mean-spirited people spreading hate all over social media sites. We can ignore these haters because their “nega” comments are a waste of time. Yet, it can be difficult for those with a mental health condition to dismiss them. Case in point – this is what happened to young Kapamilya star Ylona Garcia.
Recently, the 16-year-old female celebrity was hospitalized because of the stress brought on by her social media detractors.
The wave of negative and down-right nasty comments she received took a toll on her well-being. Naturally, she had to seek help from professionals – otherwise worse things could have happened.
In her Twitter account, Ylona Garcia narrated what happened to her prior to her hospitalization.
“Wishing and praying that we could all be spreading the love more than hate on social media because people that get disrespected on social media can only stay strong for so long and can be so close to broken down.”
In order to shed light on her situation, she chose to share what happened to her.
“As much as I’d like to keep things in private, I want everyone to be aware of their mental health.”
Based on her post, she woke up one morning and she decided to scroll down through her social media when she started seeing countless “distasteful” comments.
“I have to be honest, it really stressed me out and I spent hours trying to find ways to make sure everyone would be happy and okay, to the fact where I forgot about myself. To the point where I ended up in a hospital. I’m sharing this with you now to create awareness.”
As of this writing, she is now recovering from her sudden hospitalization.
