My Journey

I'm not Handicapped, I'm Handicapable.
(and no i didnt get that from due date lol)

I left home and drove from nj to california in search of an independent life and safe access to my medicine* so i can live. It's been an interesting journey, lots of ups, lots of downs, and even though I am now weaker than ever...nothing will ever stop me from living my dream, regardless of how long I get to live.

Life is too precious and short to waste time. And I'm Ready.

The three videos below are before and after i left nj, an interview with the Washington Post during my road trip, some audition, and one other one hahaha idk i didnt set up the web site, im kinda lost there :P below that are blog entries! thank you!

Feel free to contact me at all times: mike@mikeywheels.com


Help to save Mikey's life

As you know, Mikey has always been able to smile through the pain, no matter what, until recently. The pain in his stomach is now worse than ever and has led to an inability to eat, causing rapid weight loss. At 6'1", he's a meager 75 lbs and dropping fast. It's getting more difficult for Mikey to smile through the pain and fear.

One of the only places where Mikey can get help is the MAYO clinic in Minnesota. There, a team of specialized doctors will work together to figure out how his illnesses affect each other and can be treated to restore health and balance to his body so he can keep living his incredible life.

All of this obviously comes with a large amount of costs, which can only be covered with the help and donations of as many people as possible – even if it's just a dollar. Please click on one of the two following links to access the crowd funding campaigns that will help Mikey get better. Thank you!

The last few days have been crazy, i still don't know where im going to live, my van is beyond messed up and i can't fix it for a while, a very very long while if at all. The computers are making the steering go nuts, so yeah, its very scary. I wanna thank everyone who watched my ridiculously long, and hopefully not boring parts of my journey. Its been really tough to be on the move, not crash, figure out life, get online, not crash, get legal (which i did :) no handcuffs for me thank youu ), find a home to make my own, find an income, not crash, and enjoy life at the same time. Either way, its warmer!!!! So Pat goes home on the 7th, then i get to find out exactly, how to be disabled, independent, healthy (as much as possible haha), in debt, and eventually, ON MY OWN so i can be just like everyone else. Im not handicapped, im HandiCapable.

I'm in limbo, but for those who are interested, more of my beautiful experience to come, and im sure, my various challenges (i love challenges), and random life ( i love life)

I can't lose, i can only fall out of my chair, which ALWAYS makes for a good laugh :)

I love you all
Mikey

~thank you for everything

Hey friend,

Have you considered putting ads and etc on your blog? That would bring in some revenue and also perhaps do some speaking tours - I'm sure that people would love to hear what you have to say. I look forward to exploring your blog!

Yes, you sure are handy capable! I know you will figure it all out, even if you don't today... tomorrow brings a new sunrise with a new vision.
We love you so much, have a wonderful New Year, May all your dreams become your reality.
Mom xoxo
