In the 2000’s I was diagnosed with a few debilitating diseases, all genetic, as well as what was then Aspergers.  Fibromyalgia, Crohns, immune system issues and a lot of allergies from "grass" to "cold".  At first it was an inconvenience, but as time passed I became bedridden for several years. But again, this isn’t a sob story... Eventually I was put on medications that made life easier and less painful. While I couldn’t do much, I could play video games and talk to people. I could also do image editing and some -really- basic video editing. So I became a streamer, while finding as many small businesses as I can to work-at-home doing book keeping (and hopefully soon paralegal work).

So no, definitely no sob story.  This is a story about overcoming the odds, overcoming disability, living a better life, and building a community.  We all have a passion, yes.  But I also think there are thousands without families, friends, who could use that positive emotional support system.  Yeah, it's about gaming, but it's also about being happier and doing what you love because doing what you love is what gives life meaning.

A lot of personalities became really famous who were in as bad or worse situations. CynicalBrit (RIP), MatPat, Markiplier, dozens of Minecraft gamers, and on and on. Why can’t I do the same? So here I am. Trying to livestream, talk with followers in chat, earn some money to pay off that “bedridden but you have to survive” debt, and of course... upgrade equipment and pay for games.  Ideally pay it forward once I’m there by backing other smaller streamers.  I think we should all pay it forward if we can!

So if you’ve got some time, come with me on this “adventure”. Let’s play some classic and new games, hype up the nostalgia, and maybe learn from each other in the process - have a community where we can lean on each other’s shoulders built around a common passion of video games and computer tech.

Thanks for reading. Hope I see you in the stream!
