Tragic Details About Corpse Husband

Storyteller. Musician. Streamer. Gamer. Internet sensation. Enigma. Corpse Husband has made a name for himself since starting his YouTube channel in 2015, racking up more than 7 million subscribers by retelling user-submitted horror stories in his trademark deep, guttural voice. Corpse Husband branched into music with the 2020 release of TikTok hit "E-GIRLS ARE RUINING MY LIFE!" and the recent "agoraphobic," and he has drawn additional attention by streaming games like Among Us, often with other high profile gaming personalities.

Despite never showing his face on stream, Corpse has become increasingly open about his mental and physical health. In interviews and Q&As, he's revealed that he doesn't like his face and that he doesn't have much of a social life outside of the internet. He's also been pretty transparent about his health issues, which he said have become more serious even as his popularity has surged. Here's a look at the hardships Corpse Husband has faced, including some of his ongoing struggles.

Corpse Husband's anxiety stops him from leaving the house or having a social life

"A lot of people think it's like a business thing or a gimmick," Corpse Husband said in response to a fan question on Instagram in February 2020 regarding why he has avoided a face reveal. "I just deeply f***ing hate my face, and people's expectations at this point are ridiculous and unachievable."

In an interview with Anthony Padilla, Corpse said that his anonymous profile online has "pretty much f***ing eviscerated" his social life. "I have, like, very bad anxiety. I never leave my house," he told Padilla, adding that his increased popularity and faceless persona have only increased that anxiety. In an Instagram Q&A after the interview, he went into more detail about his anxiety, describing how it prevented him from even going grocery shopping for fear of running into the Girl Scouts.

Corpse's fans went crazy in October 2020 when he shared a couple of Instagram posts of the back of his hand, complete with chipped black nail polish, a ring, and rave "kandi." Unknowingly or not, some of his fans have increased his aversion to doing a face reveal, though the content creator has said more than once that it will likely happen against his will.

Corpse Husband lives with chronic pain and illness

In addition to his anxiety, Corpse Husband stays home so often due to a number of health diagnoses. In December 2019, he revealed via tweet that he had tested positive for fibromyalgia, a condition that causes widespread chronic pain, "sleep problems, fatigue, and often emotional and mental distress" according to the CDC. Additionally, Corpse tested positive for thoracic outlet syndrome, sleep apnea, and partial Lyme disease.

In an Instagram Q&A from March 2020, Corpse Husband also shared that he has a chronic health condition called GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, which he said is partially why his voice sounds so distinct. The disease causes inflammation of the esophagus, restricts his diet in a lot of ways, and can often cause him to lose his voice, he explained in a follow up.

Despite (or because of) his health issues, both physical and mental, Corpse Husband has been an inspiration to many. Fans who also deal with chronic illness and pain have found encouragement and companionship in Corpse Husband's candid discussions. You only need to look at the responses to his tweets and Q&As to see the outpouring of love, camaraderie, and support from his community.
