Okay so I know everyone’s talking about ~tomorrow~ and how not to do this and that but I feel I should make my own personal one because I fucking hate April Fools it’s the bane of my life. I’m a very jumpy person, and I mean REALLY JUMPY. Sometimes I scream at sudden movements or noises almost automatically it’s so annoying but I can’t help it.
And then screamers happened; I already have a phobia of horror films so imagine clicking on a link or something on tumblr bc it looks legit and then a giant, screaming, flashing horror face comes up. It’s happened too many times and the most recent time I almost broke my laptop from throwing it and basically had a mini panic attack. I was uncontrollably screaming and shaking for ten minutes, even after my brother had ran to get rid of it. It also took the rest of the day to recover and I had to sleep with the light on with someone in the room with me.
I’m so careful when I click on links or whenever someone wants to show me a video on youtube because I’m so afraid of it happening again and considering I’m not at home (I’m at uni), I don’t want my housemates to have to deal with it because it’s not just frightening me, it’ll probably frighten the hell out of them too (my mum said she was so scared she thought I was having a breakdown or something).
I shouldn’t have to be afraid of watching videos and clicking links to something I’m interested in because some dumbass thought it’d be funny to scare someone. So, before you consider doing it for April Fools ‘fun’, just think; the person who clicks it might have severe anxiety, epilepsy, a sensory processing disorder, PTSD, autism or are just crazy jumpy like me so if anything, it’ll make you lose followers. Because I swear to God if anyone I’m following reblogs a screamer I will unfollow them so fast.
So, don’t go bein’ a twat now, and thanks for reading.
