Life on Wheels: Rolling Through the Multiverse of Joi

By Personal No Comments



Hey there, world! It’s Joi here, your resident artist extraordinaire, rolling through life with a wheelchair and a rather impressive collection of chronic illnesses. Yes, you heard that right—I’m not just an artist; I’m also the proud owner of rheumatoid disease, Lymes disease, and multiple connective tissue disease. If chronic autoimmune illness were an Olympic sport, I’d have enough medals to weigh down a large gaggle of zombies. 

But hey, let’s not get bogged down in the nitty-gritty of medical jargon. Life on wheels has its perks, and I’m here to give you the inside scoop on navigating this crazy, creative multiverse of mine.

First off, let’s talk about the wheelchair. This baby is my trusty minion, always there to lend a seat (pun absolutely intended). While some might see it as a limitation, I see it as a chance to perfect my dramatic entrances. Ever tried rolling into a room with a flair that says, “Yes, I am here to dazzle you”? It’s an art form, really.

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room—or rather, the artist in the wheelchair. Yes, I create fine art photography, compose music that could make angels weep (or flee) , and run a T-shirt company that’s cooler than Cthulhu in sunglasses. How do I do it all? Simple: I’ve got the ultimate power-up—creativity fueled by resilience (and copious amounts of chocolate ), as well as an amazing husband.

On a typical day, you might find me orchestrating a photoshoot from the comfort of my rolling throne. Need a different angle? No problem, I just give a little spin. Think of it as choreographed chaos, with a side of artful genius. And let’s not forget the music. My studio might look like a high-tech command center (joke.. It completely does not 😜) , but trust me, there’s nothing more therapeutic than belting out a tune while fine-tuning those melodic masterpieces.

As for the T-shirt company, let’s just say I’ve mastered the art of multitasking. Designing shirts while managing my myriad of medical appointments is no small feat, but it’s all in a day’s work for this multiverse maestro.

At the end of the day, living with chronic illnesses and a wheelchair isn’t a tragedy—it’s a comedy of errors, a dance of resilience, and a journey of boundless creativity. So, next time you see me rolling by, give a wave, share a laugh, and remember: life on wheels is just another way to roll with the punches and paint the world with a bit of extra flair.

Thanks for joining me on this wild ride through the Multiverse of Joi. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a date with some paintbrushes and a particularly mischievous blind corgi who thinks she’s my newest artistic collaborator. Wish me luck!
