Hey! Welcome to my channel We are here to have a fun, chill and interactive stream. Enjoy your stay! #StreamOnDLive #StreamersConnected
I hope you can find the time to read the following.
My name is Wouter, I'm 39 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I have been struggling with my mental health for over 10 years now and a year ago I was officially diagnosed with Depression, ASD, and Agoraphobia. Due to all this, I have been unemployed for 6 years now and, since last year, my only income was an occupational disability benefit due to 100% labour incapacity. I also struggle with debts caused by the financial crisis a decade ago back in 2008.
My personal situation is moving forward very slowly and someday I know I will get out of this, and I will have a good life again. Because of this situation, my streams are all I have - it's what motivates me to get out of bed every day and it’s a way to have fun and put the negative thoughts to rest for a while.
I started streaming in 2014 and I've loved it ever since. The interaction with viewers and subsequently making new friends is the best part about streaming. I don’t want to give this up since it’s all I have. Streaming costs money and all the gifts I receive helps me continue streaming. This means I only use them to pay for my internet connection, to buy games and improve my equipment. Every little extra helps me to pay off my debts.
Hopefully, this has better explained and created awareness of my situation and I hope you guys will understand when I take a small break sometimes. I cannot stress this enough; I will never ever ask for money and I always value everyone who supports me and my streams in any way they can. And hey, in the end, we are all here to have fun!
