"Swedish Language, you saved me" Please Read and hope you enjoy my story...

before i first found the youtuber PewDiePie, i was suffering from depression. I hated life, i stayed up all night, wondering about negative things. (im not going to get way into detail very much.) Whenever i found him, i laughed for the first time in 4 months. I knew he spoke swedish, so i thought that i would give it a try. I thought that i could talk to him by getting very far with this language, and me sometime starting a youtube channel. PewDiePie saved me. I really hope i can eventually talk to him. Thank you.

I'm personally not a fan of PewDiePie at all, but I'm glad you found enjoyment in his videos. I have a very similar experience myself, although with a Finnish youtuber, a relatively small channel now at around 25k subscribers. So many times I fell asleep to his videos, because that was the only way I could stop my brain from thinking too much, and I think I owe like a quarter of my life to him. :)

Language has been a life saver for me as well. Depression, and issues related to military service have taken a toll. I like learning languages as a way to bring some happiness to my life. I like the sing song way Swedish sounds when spoken and it is soothing to hear.
