remembering the time i found a "drum machine demo" from 10 years ago on youtube that had less than 10 views. it was an older guy having a mental health episode and talking about how the government was sending him messages through his synthesizers

i ended up finding out how to contact the guy's family and see if he's ok. i was glad to hear that he has been through lots of therapy and has been doing a lot better over the past couple of years.

it made me think a lot about how mental illness can create behavior that others find really hard to engage with, which effectively alienates the person more. i dont have any real answers for this other than like, reach out to those around you if they're struggling
