Here is another entry from the pages that aren't usually shown to the public. I'm so glad i'm able to share these pages of my diary to fill in the gaps for you. This page was written prior to last weeks " Everybody's Changing". So if you are wondering about timelines and stuff this fits in before it. :)
"Here's Looking At You kid"
August 6, 2018
For someone who is always doing his best to be on top of the health game, to get diagnosed with yet another illness is annoying. All summer long I have genuinely been enjoying healthy foods. I guess I ate too much healthy foods because it caused me to loose my voice and get a sudden spike of acid reflux. As singer I am obviously on the edge right now because I now have GERD. Gerd is an acid reflux problem. I never wanted this, but it runs in my family. My mom has horrible acid reflux problems and has received 2 surgeries for it already. I couldn't take it anymore. I have been having trouble singing and talking. I blame the peaches. I love peaches, and not just because Timmy Chalamet in Call Me By Your Name, I genuinely love the fruit. Fourth of July week I went a little overboard and ate like 6 peaches within 4 days. I know now that, that was not a good idea. I have never had this problem in my life. Here I am getting offers to promote some really yummy heathy foods and drinks and I have to limit myself and the intake I have when eating or drinking them. It's pretty hard. One of my best friends, Dan, got on my case and told me to start juicing. He told me like a month ago, and I haven't had a second to go buy a juicer. I will soon because Dan tends to be right. As I write this right now I can't really speak. The GERD is acting up. It wasn't for a hot second and now it is. It's literally so annoying. Isn't that something, I now have 2 diseases that start with G. Just what I asked for... NOT. All in all i'll handle it like I handle everything else, fighting. I am so freaked out though. I don't want to loose my voice and not be able to talk or sing. That would break me. My voice is my companion. We are a package deal. I feel like i'm a having recurring nightmare where Ursula is coming to take my voice by bribing me with the yummy foods and drinks that somehow keep entering my life. I eat healthy, trust me. I don't eat meat, and I have a plant based diet for 6 out of the 7 days in the week. I try to eat fish once a week, but most days I'm just in the plant based world. Yet, here I am with gerd. I hope that the meds I am on will help me out in the long run. It has been working, but twice it has not. Today is one of those days. It was worst on Friday though. I just wish my body can go back to the way it was before I got Glaucoma. I was young and doing my best to live that good vibe life in LA. I got this penny board because I really wanted to learn how to skate like a bomb skater. Everyone used it as transportation. It was so cool, it still is. I am not good, but hey! At least I can stroll around and balance myself on it. I'm pretty active, i'm always out and now more than ever, i'm really never home. I have been looking out for myself since I took back who I was and now that i'm looking out for myself, my most precious gift from god, my voice, is being harmed. It hasn't brought me down, i'm too busy living for once to be brought down. However that doesn't mean I don't worry. I finally feel like the LA boy is out and proud. I have a penny board in San Fran and i'm eating healthy foods and feeling good. Regardless of the GERD, I feel pretty damn good. I guess it's just life trying to tell me to don't take things for granted. I haven't been. In fact I appreciate things a lot more than before. I have some thoughts written for another entry that I hope clarifies my way of thinking. I'm meeting with my bro Ranjot on Thursday and i'm just excited to have a day where I can just sit and talk to someone I have gotten really close to. I hope my voice doesn't go out on me, this meds better work. Anyways, it's getting late and I need to rest my inner voice and my good eye. Just had the longest day shooting yesterday. Bart is half closed, so I had to take a bus to get to the other half. One of the most annoying trips I have taken to get in and out of the city. Enough of my little rant though. At least i'm here still and safe and still willing to fight through any new hurdles life may throw at me.
