Neoclaw : Jesus...and some times i complain about my bad luck and how hard my life is....shame on me

Bryce Schutte : Can we give a moment and realize this mans bench is 330 lbs? With his skin condition? That’s insane! Props to you man, I’m glad you have something you enjoy and push yourself to do!

Sophie Poels : i cried the entire video, it's so unfair people have to live in this kind of pain :'(

jsorro : Damn dude, I bet you've got mental strength like no other. Respect bro.

hix brothers : I wish he wasn't going through this pain

StarXFire : Im literally crying right now. You are one of the greatest people i've ever seen in my life. You are so strong and your character is very special and beautiful. I really wish you the best man. I hope it will not be as painful for you as it was in the past. Please try to life your life you really don't deserve this. Im from Germany so don't mind if i can't write everything right. God bless you and your family. I hope you know that you are a very strong, beautiful, social and friendly guy. I love the way you are. I know your family and friends and all of us are very proud! Take care! ;( ❤ #respect

Mike B : *When watching this video it makes all of our problems seem so insignificant...* *If this guy can be so positive about his life then we can be positive about ours...* *He is a credit to the human race and I would love to shake his hand...* *God bless you my friend*

Beau Stephenson Music Channel : This makes me cry. It's not fair. He has such a sunny disposition for someone who has known nothing but pain.

Trojan kid : Can you guys believe that he lifts weights. He also went to the olympics

AntigoneIvy : For those wondering about the redness/blood around his eyes: "His brown eyes, framed by fleshy circles frequently dampened by *overactive* *tear* *ducts* , appear sunken in the absence of eyelids." (By a newspaper article from 2013, "The Australian") I admit I was curious too and made a quick search. In the meantime, I wish this fellow all the best!

chardvnnay : This is insane. I feel so bad for him. Physical touch is so important and he probably gets skin irritation just by touching his own skin. Legs and armpits rubbing together. This is awful.

DoltBolt : Stay strong man we need more people like you in this world

imlatinoguy : Honestly I thought the thumbnail was click bait. But I have never seen more courage in a human being than this guy.

Salem Deluxe : His teeth are literally perfectly aligned though.

Mark Crawfy : Makes me relize what life is about..

Chester Vin : I hope technologies will become so advanced soon, that you'll become totally healthy. Wish you luck man!

SaltyReptile : You my friend are a great person for speaking up like that, I get nervous when I’m doing a school presentation but you don’t, god bless you and good luck!

Mister Momo : Suddenly, my life doesn’t seem so terrible. He has to be one of the strongest people on this earth.

James Carnes : I have alot of veteran friends. Most have burns and have diffrent appearances do to being in combat zones. Its sad how people look at this guy and veterans and are scared. It sucks that people fear what they don't understand. One of man kinds greatest weakness. I'm so proud to hear and see you keep strong and positive and live life like anyone of us. Apeerances don't mean a thing what's inside someone is the best thing.

GeneralSantucci1st : You gave me a new look on life . I no longer will feel sorry for myself . God bless you .

no name : Just think, at some point you're gonna die & reincarnate into this man's body

PhiLLie Stuntz : To the people who disliked and submitted the cruel comments, all of you are just despicable people and will never be as courageous, positive minded, and respected as him. All of you heartless degenerates have to mock him just so you can feel better about yourself

billiondollardan : Holy crap man I bet that is excruciatingly painful. This guy has a stronger spirit than almost anyone

Roman 461 : Ahh man his eyes bruh how does he sleep at night😨😰😭 it looks so painful it don't even look like he can close them. People always claim they're strong n hard but tbh I don't think anyone can tops him💪

theinfidel : you have bigger balls than me dude, considering we live in a world where not having a certain pair of trainers can get you shunned from society, good things my friend

jetlife : holy shit, this has to be one of the most motivating videos of all time. thanks so much for sharing dean!

In The Open : Hello everyone, Thank you for watching our story on Dean. We have some inspiring new stories coming your way very soon. Watch this space and please be kind to each other. ITO Team x

babadookie ;s : I'm so sad that he has never lived a day without pain. This is so heart breaking. You are the strongest person ever for dealing with that. Such an amazing person.

Lars : such an awesome person ☺ stay strong, brother!

Ginger Ninja : This is strength. Mental fortitude beyond what any of us can imagine. What a guy.

layla : makes me feel bad about complaining

Omega 3370 : Can I hug this man......?

Jess Joachimowski : As someone who is in love with an EB survivor, I am totally moved by your story. My fiancé has severe EB. I have learned how to tend his blisters, I’ve been with him when he was hospitalized by infections, and I’ve stood by him when he lost his brother (who died of EB complications). I take care of his wounds, I wrap his arms and legs. I cry every time he takes a shower bc I know how much pain it causes him. I know he might leave me earlier than I’d like because of his skin condition being so lethal, but I am so in love with him, it doesn’t scare me away. So I’m pouring that much love, positivity and good spirits out to you my friend. Amazing video 💕

DESPA CITO : Good job man. You beat the odds. Keep that strong spirit.

sandramorrison99 : Damn- NIGHTCLUBS? NIGHTCLUBS??? I NEVER went CLUBBING, I'm 55! He gotz big BALLZ!!

Dalton Williams : If anyone deserves the best its this guy, TONS of respect

Danny Dan : Bless you man, i wish you the best

Hugppyz : When this video popped up in my recommended I thought it was a fake video then I clicked on it and I was suprised it was real I feel bad for the lad and god bless him he is a strong one and he should continue that way

Chy Life : I like the Minecraft music in the background

Wild About Nature : I don't have to ever meet this guy to know I love him to bits!

Javo [Humor negro para blancos] : F (Respect)

Owen Grant : The strength of the human spirit is beautiful. This man is inspiring to me.

Steve R. Neill : The level of BOSS that this man is knows no equal.

Primary Key Music : Glad I clicked! Love this guy.

THE SWEETEST KITTY : Thank you for sharing and educating us about your medical condition....what courage you have to let the world into this very personal part of your life knowing how judgmental people can be. I pray you continue to beat the odds!🙏🏼🙏🏼 Sending Good Vibes your way

920921 : God bless him

Viviana Restrepo : I don’t know if you’ll ever see this comment but, I want to thank you for making this video. And giving us a glimpse into your life. You are incredible and such an inspiration! Your family must be so proud of you! I hope my children grow up to be as positive and strong minded as you.

DJJA 102 : I complain when I have to get out of bed...he struggles to get out of bed because his skin could make it hard for him

cooldloop : What a guy, you have to be EXTREMELY strong and hopefull to live.
