Not the best of news
But in my heart I know it’s a fight I am gonna win
I am not worried about anything
I am worried about how I can give more back to everyone who needs support
I Don’t give a f*ck about being sick , as me and my doctors have a plan! And I will be fine!
Alzheimer’s is bullshit. I am scared about potential Parkinson’s disease because it might f*ck up my PlayStation time I have been beaten up for so long , this is an easy one
Look at the news of the world
Bullshit going down
Just do what’s right and be cool to everyone
Don’t get involved in the stupid shit
Not worth it
Be safe y’all and talk soon”

I will beat this … it’s not that big a deal , I am doing what’s right and , well, I am looking forward to the fight!!!! I am totally in a good place , it’s gonna be ok!! Oh lol it’s 2019, no memory lol , it’s all good!”
“I’ve got some serious trauma, brain trauma, from all the concussions… It was a serious situation. I had to leave Mexico. I think I saved my life by coming here and going into therapy, but it’s not the end of the world by any f*cking means at all. I go to the gym three or four hours a day and my diet is super clean. I’m on the right medications and the right treatments. I’m going to be fine. Alzheimer’s – I mean, you know, f*ck it. It doesn’t phase me at all. I’m awesome… I ain’t a quitter and I’m not scared to fight the good fight.”
