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!

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!

i have a little problem, or at least i hope its little... my left foot is swelling, and it hurts quite a bit. its been about 3 days since it began, and now its concerning me. i went to the emergency room tonight, spoke to a nurse and she gave me some advice. she suggested i stay and wait to see a doctor, but with a low battery on my wheelchair and a 12-24 hour wait... i left.

so with my fingers crossed and a lot of pain im going to attempt to sleep. there is always a reason for every good and bad event or situation. im trying to figure out what this is going to teach me, so that maybe if i learn my lesson, i can overcome this, i hope..

but im still alive so all is well! tomorrow is a new day, wish me luck

love
mike

Sweet heart, hope you had a good night sleep. maybe you could charge your battery and go back to the emergency room. taking care of yourself is your duty, you owe it to your body!It's doing it's best and you got to do your best for it!
I love you so much.
