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 Mikey way

There are many people, my parents included, who don't see why I'm here (LA from NJ). The weather and medicine is not a good enough reason for them, because there are kids with MD in NJ... Even tho i kicked the Medical Marijuana law into action in NJ over two years ago with help from Assemblywoman Vandervalk (a republican) yeah I know how to work politics ;) and many patients, sadly we just lost one of the main fighters with me, Diane. We were on the cover or all the newspapers, NY times, and just about everyone else who used the photo (poster child) for LA and NJ.

anyways! It's cold in NJ, plain and simple, my parents say, there are plenty of kids happy in NJ with MD.... I say ask them if California would make them happier... I'd put money on that.. Sorry Mom and Dad, it's a health risk I won't take. California is where I live, and I plan on going out here too :) I love it here :)

I'm not one of those normal dudes, I've never been like anyone. I set ridiculous goals, challenges, and have chosen just about the hardest life I had available to me, all for one word:

FULFILMENT

i have created a life here that is beyond beautiful... Sure I'm hungry and broke... I'm dedicated to changing that one day... But the beautiful part is that the universe is keeping me alive. I've fallen out of the chair at high speed, hung upside down for 5 and a half hours (not on purpose) lol can't count how many times I almost died. Starved for 4 years, I'm 83 lbs with clothes now at 6'1''

But you know what?... Most people think because things are tough and I'm alone that that makes me unhappy or depressed...

Lemme tell you. Sure it would be nice to have company, female :)... But hasn't the past been filled with so much beauty, meeting people, experiences, new friends? And I've had the same status... Happy as a pig in %€+.

Why??!?!?!

Because I wanna be, I wanna do everything, meet everyone, go everywhere, spread the word about how to achieve happiness in a way that is NEVER taught in school.

Maybe I'm crazy, well probably, I've been called that my whole life. But those who know me, know Mikey's got something big down the line. And I do. I have this muscular dystrophy for a reason, maybe it's to show those with it or similar how to overcome it, be bigger than it.

Do I have an ego... No.
I'm confident, you have to be in life.

I believe in what works and I also have an extra sense... It makes some people uncomfortable because I can see in their souls. I was born with a crutch and a gift. I'm gonna show myself, more then anyone, that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. And share it.

If I didn't receive emails from around the world id keep all this to myself, and would have never continued making one video or have an online presence.

I feel this is what I must to... It may take time, it may look ugly, it may make NO SENSE TO YOU. But in my heart... It's all that drives me.

It's LOVE. I've received it more then I could have ever dreamed. Keeping my spirits high. Everyone online, my family, and even tho I'm not very known. I could care less haha what's meant to be, will be. And ONE is better than none :) I'm honored to have 600 something, thanks to Paris, and Kayden for getting me started :)

I have faith. Lots of it. Follow your heart, that's all i do and I have had the life that many have envied, and I have had a hard time even believing some of the things that happened... Danny gives me a private TOOL show, countless actors and musicians, Hugh Hefner picture, playboy mansion party, becoming friends with the sweetheart Paris Hilton, going to Acapulco with my good friend Pablo ( he flew myself and a friend there to take care of me ), Dean May, Pablo Machado, Paul Oakenfold, Danny and Justin from TOOL, have all been so so kind, love you guys, Bill Manspeaker for Green Jellö saving my life, the Mexicans! And all my peeps in LA, and AROUND THE WORLD! It's an honor to be me. There are honestly too many people! I'm surrounded by love!!

And it's this determination and will power that I want everyone to have that will never allow someone to be unhappy. There is too much pain in the world, people deserve to be happy! Just as I do. We are the masters of our destiny, the universe only points us in the direction.


Ok no more crazy thoughts my mike at almost 2 am haha

LOVE ALL OF YOU! Thank you for being a part of this beautiful unique life. It helps more than you know to see followers or get messages or friend requests. I have the best people in my life. In couldn't be more thankful.

Mikey
