Greetings from Possum

Hello Doritos!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Possum03, and I am a DCP Legend. I read through the venting channel on discord earlier because I want to be able to support you all, and some of what I saw broke my heart. So I want to share my story, to try and help you all get through these scary times.

WARNING! Post may continue mature content, please continue at your own risk

I joined the Doritos in 2015 after being recruited by Mustapha10x. I was undergoing some of the worst depression of my life, and I had no one to turn to. After joining, I met some of the best friends of my life, as well as my brother in everything but blood, Mustapha. I met people who taught me that my life has meaning, and who helped keep me alive and going. So when I saw that people are scared, and some people even felt their life doesn’t have meaning anymore, I knew I had to write this post. This is an appeal to my family. I am happy to open my arms to you all, to let you all be part of my family and I hope you are willing to let me into yours.

When I joined I was 11, dealing with severe bullying everyday and had no one to turn to. I thought that people would be be better off without me, and like I didn’t matter. I have a vivid memory of just sitting upstairs crying, thinking that people would be better off without me, and that I’d be happier with God. Thankfully, I found DCP when I did.

I poured my heart and soul into the Doritos, it became such a huge part of my life. I quickly moved up the ranks, becoming Mod then Owner. In 2016 I became a DCP Legend after Mustapha went into a temporary retirement and put me in charge of the army. Without the Doritos, so many of my life accomplishments never would have come together. I would not have ever finished my Blackbelt training, had a boyfriend, or joined robotics which has been the most fulfilling experience of my life. That all would have ended if it wasn’t for the people in this army telling me not to give up.

After my robotics competition got canceled due to Covid-19, my life felt like it was ruined. I had poured my heart into my robot as much as I had DCP when I was younger, doing little but obsess over it for the past 2 months, and it hurt me really badly. The difference was that this time I had people who supported me, and it made all the difference. When Mustapha found out my competition was canceled, he reached out to me and asked me to rejoin the army. And here I am

So to those of you who are struggling, and I see you everyday, PLEASE know you are not alone. Never. It may feel like it, it may feel like you’re the only person in the world when you are suffering, but guess what? The world is a big and complicated place. If you reach out, you would be amazing to find that other people are going through it too, and that there is hope. So if you takeaway one thing from this post, anything at all, it is that we are a family and you don’t have to go through this along. The good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, we are all here for each other, even if we end up parting ways. If anyone needs anything at all, please reach out. I’m always here if you want to talk, but if not me, find someone who you can trust, reach out, and do awesome stuff. I know you all have it in  you. And if someone comes to you feeling down or depressed, listen to them, be a friend and reach out  to get them help if they need it. Do not keep it to yourself, this is lives at stake, and all of us matter.

Thank you for coming to my TED Talk,


DCP Legend

Signing off.
