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!

How the hell did I get here

I came here 3 years ago for weather and weed and a new life. Away from my family, to start maybe my own. I live hard, with help, but still manageable and hard, and I make it. All by myself, free from micro managing parents and people's idiotic opinions regarding my life.... Sorry but unless you are me, be quiet. My thoughts, dreams, and ideals are most definitely not the same as yours. How could they be? We are all individuals. Free spirits, but oh wait, mike... U need help, ur disabled, you NEED US................ Now Wait wait wait..... I DID THIS. On my own 3 years ago. And as much as I don't like where I am now, I need a revolution like 3 years ago, I have no money, little help, and need to survive. I need to make this happen now. I cannot let my parents irrational thinking disrupt my life so much. Gotta turn mikeywheels back on. Get em spinning. Burning rubber.

Anon. is way too harsh! Mike's has made his choices and has great life experiences. How many of us have sky-dived, traveled cross-country, etc. More power to you Mike! Please keep in touch with your parents though...they will always worry about you...can't they help you financially? I'm speaking as a parent of 2 sons. One independent & one at home looking for a job at the age of 24. Doesn't CA have some social programs to help with support?
