The Old Man and Facebook II: Admitted To The Hospital Hours After Binging Facebook!!
Remember that story I wrote about a few weeks ago about The Old Man And Facebook? Well, I just found out that he's in the hospital after arguing politics and masks with his daughter on Facebook. Just a few days earlier, another one of his daughters told him to quit following her around and complaining about her life. Clearly, Facebook is not a good place for this man to hang out. In fact, things got pretty ugly pretty fast, and I can't say that I am one bit surprised. I saw this coming months ago and here we are today!
After a rant about how masks are not for him, he complained of chest pains and was driven to the hospital where he was admitted with a blood pressure of 247/102. I have posted before how he has let Facebook consume his life and how it has made him far more irritable and irate at the world.
Now we can see the fruits of his Facebook addiction. It is not good.
This is what chronic Facebook gets you in your old age. Maybe, just maybe, one should not be on Facebook or social media if they are given over to feelings of anger, have a history of high stress, or are vulnerable.
Maybe Facebook should come with a warning for those who can't handle political posts, annoying people, stress-inducing conspiracy posts, and all the other crazy things that are a part of the site.
This should be a harsh reminder of the reality that can come from Facebook use. It can kill you.
Maybe you would be better off not being on Facebook at all.
I can't help but wonder how happy this man would be if he just let it all go. Sadly, few people really understand how stressful situations can cause all sorts of problems, including heart disease, which this man has!
If you see a stressed-out person spending their days on Facebook, you owe it to them to get them off at all costs!
