A Quick Message

The reason for the low amount of videos this year is one I should have realized a while ago... I was just a couple of days ago diagnosed with a mild depression. My motivation, self-esteem and creativity keep hitting rock bottom at completely random times. The times I HAVE made videos have been brief periods of normalcy. 

This does not mean that I am going to stop making videos alltogether (or that I am 100% miserable all the time), though - it means that I am in need of some help, which I have already taken steps into getting. So videos will come back. But I felt you all deserved an explanation for my low output this year. Looking back it's been rummaging at the back of my head for a while.

I may still do the occasional Vlog and the like, but the motivation for the full workload that is a review just doesn't pop up often as of late. But it will be back. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  1. Oh Esh, I understand how you're feeling. I've battled mild depression for years and know the negative effects of it all too well. I am glad you are seeking the help that you need, as that is often the hardest step for many suffering from depression to take. As a recent fan of your videos and blog and willing internet friend, I am here for you. As much as I miss your hilarious Horrible Horror reviews, I'm happy that you're doing what you need to do for you, and will patiently await your return.

    Take care,
    Kaylee

  3. I too deal with depression and anxiety. It can be hell. I just want to say that you do an awesome job and that I love each and everyone of your videos. You make me laugh harder than 95% of the reviewers on blip and TGWTG. That's saying a lot, because most of them are absolutely hilarious. I hope you feel up to making more videos soon and feel at the top of your game. Thanks for the many laughs you have given me since I first discovered your reviews!

  4. I’m very sorry to learn of your diagnosis, but it’s good to know you've sought treatment. I hope you find peace with it soon, and should you ever need someone to talk to you've always got your fans in Alaska (:

    Best of luck, and Merry (early) Christmas!

  6. Sorry to hear about that, Esh! I am typing "eshbaal" into youtube about three times a week to see if there are any new reviews going on! You are actually the reason I discovered TGWTG.com, because I randomly happened upon one of your videos and wanted to see more online reviews! So stay strong, and hopefully you will feel that you are up to making a new video soon :D.
