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:

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!


It can always be worse

Lately, things have been up and down haha

My disease is coming down on me hard, and me not having much help is not helping that at all. My muscles, the more I use em, the more I lose em. Help requires money haha which I don't have haha

But that's where it is... I compare my life to others and I have it amazing. I have friends all over the world, I have had more beautiful experiences then I can count, and when I do get help, it's the best help in the world. Full of love and care.

I think about people with diseases that make mine look like nothing. People who have ZERO food. And ZERO help. And ZERO money. PEOPLE WHO CAN'T EVEN MOVE! Or even worse, not being able to control their minds. I have it amazing when I really think about the difference. I couldn't be luckier. Or blessed.

Now I don't want to be the person always needing help. I want to give back. I want to be the person to help people worse than me.

I discovered how I could be a part of people's lives by accident with and YouTube.

I never knew people would write me, follow me, or anything. But it's an honor.

I only hope one day, I can be healthier, and stronger, and have a better support system. That way I can be the best Mikey I can be for the people who look to me for help or a different outlook. (Which I never thought would happen!)

I don't like a spotlight, but if I can change a life along the road, have an impact on one person. It feels right, and makes me feel like all this meant to be.

I may be 82 lbs, 6'2", but I have the strongest drive and determination that I know I've ever had before. I never have up in any of the 4 years I've been living alone here in California. And I'm certainly not giving up till I'm no longer here. I feel destiny calling, and I will crawl if I have to to get there. It's been calling me all my life.

Nobody said life would be easy, and I kinda like the challenge :) life never gets boring ;)

Still alive, still happy, still Mikey :)

Love love love!

Thank you for believing in me
