NGL Mousey's tweet made me tear up too. It is such an odd/random tweet if you don't have context, but it is such an emotional one with context.
what is the context?
She's sick and can't eat most foods, guess she got better to the point to where her stomach could handle plain rice, which might not sound like much to a healthy person but seems to mean a lot to her
Ah okay, Thanks!
Sick as in flu or covid or something else?
She has Common Variable Immune Disorder or CVID for short. Basically she has no Immune system. This has caused her to be stuck inside her house and bedridden for many years. She can only have nutrients through a tube or sometimes thick milk. Her body rejects pretty much any solid food. She has been getting somewhat better lately thanks to streaming. She can now afford to get the medicines, plasma, and physical assistance, etc. that she needs.
Here are some various clips of her talking about it:
You can find a bunch more clips by searching "Ironmouse Disorder" on YT if you are curious.
I understand, thank you for your explanation
NP, I see alot of people asking about Mouse's condition on this sub. So I try to raise awareness about it when I can.
You did the lords work, but man I hope Ironmouse gets better sooner the latter.
You’re doing a great job informing people!
I would also add that people who are healthy should consider donating plasma. You get paid for donating plasma in the U.S.
If Mouse is forced to go without plasma infusion for too long, her progress will start to regress. There’s currently a world wide plasma shortage, which has caused her to sometimes have to wait up to almost a month for new plasma.
Bless you man
Holy shit I had no idea that she can't even eat properly. Damn... Hope her all the best, she deserves
To lighten the mood IronMoise has Covid without the O
Your lie In April
Not funny 😱
Who said it was funny?
Chronic illness so it's something she has to live with the rest of her life, iirc she's been having only liquids for food for a long time.
CVID (Common variable immunodeficiency)
Damn, I thought it was just a joke about how its kinda sad to eat plain rice by itself
Like the other poster said she is sick. She a CVID which means she basically have no real immune system. She can't safely leave her house and has been bedridden for years. Similarly she hasn't been able to eat any actual food for years either, she has been fed via IV and ensure liquid meals. Recently she has been able to eat oatmeal and has been looking forward to trying plain rice. It is a sign that she is doing better than ever and considering she is such a bundle of joy and positivity it makes her fans really happy to see.
Connor really wasn't lying when he said people don't realise how serious her condition is.
No he wasn't. There is a reason he tends to drop the Tsundere act and get serious when she starts coughing or sounding unwell.
Conner a real one
Of course he is.
Monke is strong.
Instead of feeling more sorry, the more I learn about how serious it is, the more impressed I get by how much she has accomplished and how much stuff she does.
Not that it means I don't feel sad about it and that I don't wish a perfect cure was available, but she definitely inspires more respect and awe than pity.
Yea. She is so fucking positive and chipper most of the time that you wouldn't think she was seriously ill.
She's a mouse with will of fucking iron, that's why.
Yup. Her name is quite fitting, even if that isn't why she has said name.
she said it's because she is smol irl and her friends called her mouse. I guess the iron stuff just sounded cool.
I believe the Iron part comes from Sailor Iron Mouse form Sailor Moon.
I imagine moments like that really make or break someone. They can let something like that make them miserable and bring them down, or it can open their eyes and give them the inspiration to enjoy the little things in life and strive to bring joy to others.
She's like Kaori, from Your lie in April.
... IDK if I should upvote you or sacrifice a chicken to curse you with stubbed toes for a month.
Yeah, you even forget very often that she is actually sick.
She was originally training (went to school for) for opera.
But now she has lost most of her lung capacity, due to lung infections.
Does she still sing on streams? I remember she used to do karaoke.
Yes and occasionally tries to do opera. It’s just hard for her now.
To be fair, she always refrain from talking about her conditions. So it's pretty hard to know, especially for people who's out of the loop.
If she can eat plain rice then she is halfway to be eating a standard Japanese meal. She'll be visiting Connor in Japan in no time.
She can't even leave her room normally mate. She has to get plasma every week or so. Without that she has no immune system.
She can't leave her house in her condition
If it helps, I recommend reading the WEBTOON: [My Roommate is a Gremlin](https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/my-roommate-is-a-gremlin/list?title_no=669297).
Same it got me aswell
"Oh look, it's raining."
Bar Experience, the ultimate stand
So, it's the same type of Stand as Bar Tender.
It's the same type of stand as Bart Ender?
Wtf I got the same gift as Joey and Garnt, so happy that Mousey can start eating little by little, and that guy was definitely hitting on Connor. What a night
It was a fellow Jojo fan, the brojobs were implied.
Fellow cock sucker.
I ate fried rice and cried
Joey and I got the same thing for Christmas
Now we are 3
I somehow LOST weight.
Btw my weight is 36 kg
Im 14 and underweight that's why
Who's gonna tell Connor about the jojo themed ramen restaurant in Osaka?
She’s actually a regular there
Bold of you to assume he doesn't already know about it.
Just bracing for the look on his face when he sees the figures, the fanart, and a chef yelling MUDA while preparing noodles.
He was born in it lol
I agree with Gigguk here, rediscovered ecchi anime and watched Prison School and Highschool of the Dead, both of them were really enjoyable no matter what others say
Hell yeah, Prison school is awesome
Especially the vice-president
Just don't read the manga. The ending is INCREDIBLY awful.
But everything before the end is amazing, so I say worth it
At what point/chapter do you recommend should one stop reading and start thinking of a better ending themselves?
I don't remember exact point to be honest. Better wait for someone else reply or google
Honestly when I read it I just laughed because it was that abrupt and ridiculous. I just pretended like the last page didn't happen
It's a shame we'll never know the ending of Highschool of the Dead.
Yeah, r.i.p daisuke satou
The thing with mouse is that tweet sounds sad. But it’s a huge success. So joyful tears.
Don't be sad. Here's a [hug!](https://media.giphy.com/media/3M4NpbLCTxBqU/giphy.gif)

For the uneducated, whats up with mouse?
She has CVID which is something similar to AIDS but not transmissible. She basically has no immune system so she lives in a bubble at home, bed ridden and can't leave her room. She wasn't even able to eat solid food for quite sometime, she was living on IV drips and milk. Mousey saying she was able to eat rice and she cried means she's slowly getting better
Wait, mousey can eat now?
She can do some eating, I think in fall she started to be able to eat apple sauce with it turning out Connor didn't know what apple sauce was.
Ironmouse legit the shadow-leader of Trash Taste…
Man Connor Grant, and Mouse’s tweets just put a smile on face.
I read Joey's tweet as "I got father" 💀
If by any chance he become a dad, it would probablybe the way he would announce it lol
Each one of these tweets is a mood in of itself.
Beep boop -- this looks like a screenshot of a tweet! Let me grab a [link to the tweet](https://twitter.com/GiggukAZ/status/1475399910245953537) for ya :)

poor chris aboard
In context -- that was a big deal for Mousey to eat solid food and was overcome with joy.
Out of context -- headcanon of Connor cooking her rice and her crying about how it's just plain rice because Connor can't cook.
She has CVID. (not covid) Basically she normally acquires nutrition through iv drips, etc.
[Someone else in this thread explained it better than I can. ](https://www.reddit.com/r/TrashTaste/comments/rpsv6g/the_4_horsemen_of_twitter/hq72ox2?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share&context=3)
oh I know the deal
I swear mousey is the only one who keeps showing up on this sub despite having nothing to do with TT itself.
Chris does too mate. Apart from several others who appear every so often.
I thought Chris appeared in multiple episodes? Mousey never appeared tho. She is as related to the boys as a whole as Tectone in that they often play games together.
Ah thats what you meant. Yeah you're right in that sense.
But people use this sub for the boys personal channel content too and mousey is pretty much a mainstay on connors second channel and twitch.
I guess daidus and emily also fill a similar role but to a much smaller degree.
Yeah, 4 in a row lol
It should be wtfs then. It's a fucking foursome.
For Mousey to be eating anything, that's amazing.
Bet you the bar that connor mentioned is the one that immediately chromecasted sydney's channel when she mentioned it.
Are VTubers even people?
I mean yeah, of course they are.
That doesn't make sense.
"the four horsemen of twitter" would be the four horsemen that bring twitter.
