Dear Jerma985 and his community,
Throughout my life, I have been through a lot of trauma and pain, both physically and psychologically. For most of the years on my life, I sat alone. It sounds kind of silly to say this, but finding you on YouTube and watching your antics on stream has saved and enhanced my life in more ways than I could ever express.
My "escape" has always been through the Internet, watching videos and playing countless rounds of Counter-Strike. Despite this, every day, I thought of nothing but ending my life. I have never once acted on my wishes, but I have gotten very close a number of times. When I fell into one of the deepest depressions I have ever experienced, I found a video of you playing Team Fortress 2 on YouTube with Star_. I had never laughed so hard in my life.
In the following days afterwards, I had eventually watched all of the content you had to offer at that point, as well as Star_. I wasn't thinking about anything else but Shpees and Byeahs. Watching your silly dumb gameplay videos on YouTube saved my life. Years later, I discovered you had been streaming on Twitch. I don't know how I missed out on that.
You still amaze me every day with how genuine and funny your content is. I have a laughing fit every five minutes watching your streams. The streams where you played The Movies had been happening at another low point in my life, but I still haven't laughed that hard, ever. Through your Discord server, I have met some amazing people who have comforted me and have become some of my closest friends, and I am still very active in there, hopefully making people happier with my stupid memes.
I'm so incredibly thankful. I know you'll probably never read this, but I wanted to express how much your streams and videos mean to me, and no doubt many others. I am definitely improving with my mental health, and currently have plans to move in with my boyfriend, whom I met indirectly through your Discord server. I can say with confidence that you are the most important thing to happen in my life.
Thank you for everything.
