It's rare for a Twitch streamer to accumulate a substantial following and then just completely disappear, but that's exactly what appears to have happened to Sweeettails.

After months of radio silence, Sweeettails offered an update to her fans at the beginning of September on Twitter. Sweeettails said that she had been dealing with mental and physical health issues.
"Over the last 5 months I’ve been dealing with mental and physical health problems which has lead me to not being able to work/stream. I’m struggling more than I have ever in my entire life and it’s terrifying. I’m scared," she wrote."
"Every day is a battle that sometimes I just don’t want to fight. I’ve never experienced anything like this before and it breaks my fucking heart the thing I loved doing the most, which was creating content and streaming for you all, is something I’m not able to do right now," she continued.
"I’m working on getting better but I don’t know what that even looks like for my future. But what I do know is that when I get better, I will be back. I’m not leaving you guys."
