Hey to all, I know its been forever since u have heard from me but.. I have a legit reason i've been Hospitalized since Jan. Through the holidays I felt extremly tired,sick etc... and being one who fears Dr's self diagnosed myself and never went to the Dr well.. it finally got so bad I had to go and found out I was sicker than I thought. I have a disorder called POLYMYOSITIS a muscle debilitating desease that basically takes away all your muscles to the point where u can't walk or move your arms it effects different people in different ways.So... all that to say i've been in rehab getting myself back into shape. I'm moving real slow but.. i'm moving and I Thank God for that. Musically i'm still workin on the new project that will hopefully be out in Sept. Yes... i'm still working. God Spared my my voice!! Hope to see u all soon and I Thank u in advance for all your well wishes.
