Hi Critical Role Cast, Crew, and Critters,
A year and a half ago, sudden, rapidly declining health started taking away my normal life. The illness wasn’t going to kill me, but I was so hopeless and depressed, I was pretty close to ending all anyway. Critical Role gave me an escape. It gave me back magic and laughter. It reminded me that being broken didn’t mean I couldn’t achieve great things, and that I wasn’t alone. It was a light when all other lights went out.
When illness took away many of my other social groups, I found the Critter community. When it took away my job and sense of purpose, I found transcribing and analyzing, which gave me back some small sense of usefulness and worth. I couldn’t keep making it though this without Critical Role or this community.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart,
