Popular Twitch streamer Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein gave fans an update on his battle with depression after a series of live streams where he spoke with a psychiatrist. 

Reckful is a veteran Twitch streamer that has been broadcasting on the platform since 2012. He first rose to fame thanks to his World of Warcraft skills and eventually moved onto Hearthstone, where he was able to grow his fan base even more.

Since then the American has moved on to a variety of content, including IRL [In-real-life] streams. In some of those broadcasts, he spoke with Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Kanojia in an attempt to battle his depression.

The streams were quite emotional with Reckful delving deep into his inner thoughts and even being reduced to tears during his first session.

However, things seem to be looking up for Byron, as he shared a heart-warming update during a broadcast on January 5. “I’m happy, I can say with confidence, I’m actually day-to-day happy – even when I’m doing nothing and alone,” he told his viewers. 

The streamer then continued with a positive vibe, adding: “I’m happy. I’ve never felt this way in my life! I’ve never felt day-to-day happy when I’m doing nothing and alone. I’m not saying it’s going to last forever, but right now I am so happy, and I want to keep it going.”

After his touching message Byron went on to continue with his stream where he seemed very upbeat and even showed off his upcoming game, Everland, which he was able to place above the likes of Pokemon on Twitch by broadcasting it.

Reckful has always been open and honest with his viewers about his depression but has continued to stream and deliver entertaining content regardless. No doubt, his viewers were extremely happy to hear his positive message and will hope that he can continue on his uplifting journey.

Josh Richards has perfect response to Jackson Mahomes hitting on Nessa Barrett

Josh Richards has posted a hilarious response after TikToker Jackson Mahomes tried to shoot his shot with Nessa Barrett.

Josh Richards and Nessa Barrett might not be in an official relationship right now, but all signs point to the two as a pretty solid pair, and they’re not exactly keeping it quiet.

In the last couple of months, Josh has given plenty of indication that he’s loved up, despite some previous attempts at denial that no one is convinced by, especially after their history together.

Josh and Nessa first got together in late 2019 when TikTok began to blow up and were together for nine months before breaking things off in August to “focus on ourselves.” But they stayed pretty close in the meantime, often appearing in vlogs together, making TikToks together, and posting images of them getting close. But when fans asked questions, they simply maintained they were best friends.

Josh and Nessa started getting close again in Autumn 2020

However, Josh seemed to confirm that they are currently dating during his BFFs podcast with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy. “That’s his girlfriend,” Portnoy said of the situation, to which Josh replied, “Yeah, that’s why she was on the show.”

But under Portnoy’s TikTok clip of the conversation, Nessa wrote “Weird,” she wrote. “I didn’t even know myself?” causing even more confusion for fans of the couple.

The lack of clarity also means that some are trying to flirt with Nessa. After she posted a TikTok lipsyncing to Lucky by Lil Nemo, TikToker Jackson Mahomes, also known as the brother of NFL star quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, duetted the video lipsyncing the words “Looking at me, I know you wanna f*** me, I’ll give you this d*** if you lucky” and added the caption “let me take you on a date.”

But Josh was not having it and promptly stitched the video with his own addition. He simply stood in front of the camera, and in silence, gestured towards Nessa sleeping on his bed, returned to look at the camera, and nodded while looking very proud of himself.

Jackson snapped back in the comments “She looks bored,” but Josh was quick to hit back with “long night prolly tired.”

The response leaves a pretty clear message to anyone trying to flirt with Nessa, and perhaps this will lead to confirmation that the pair are exclusive in 2021.
