I've mentioned here before that I'm someone who watches ASMR videos because they help me calm my anxiety, relax me, etc. That's what they are meant to do. The people who make them are typically really giving, kind people. They are also, well, people.

One of them, a woman known as Springbok, left her channel. I'm scared for her. She has her own mental illness to contend with and the trolls and people just *needing* her so much have just pushed her too far. She posted a farewell video but it has been made private. I'm including the transcript in full. It shows her beautiful spirit and also the horrible way that internet trolls and people without boundaries treat content creators like robots.

The transcript is behind the cut. It's one of the most terrible and beautiful things I've read. I am scared that her mental illness may take her completely. I hope not. I hope not.
