I was body shamed when I posted this pic on 08.17.20 I was approx 113 lbs And some asshole said I looked like “an old junkie” Lupus + Diabetes had been kicking my ass for 7 months straight But… Oddly enough I was getting better as 2 weeks before that I was 105 lbs and my sugar was in the 500’s from being on Steroids But I was determined to wish my son @caiden817 Happy Birthday Because, as you can see, it could have been the last time God’s will is God’s will This is my story and I’m tell it my way… Wait till you see me in a picture now 💰💰💰 #ThingsAreDifferentNow
The steroids doctors gave to Cons, who was already a Type II diabetic, made his sugars go through the roof and as a result, he’s now fighting Type I diabetes as well.
“I don’t even eat candy,” he explains. “I do eat breakfast, but the thing is I learned you might as well eat cake if you eat white bread. I’ve had to restructure how I eat and shit, and I’m learning as I go. I literally was at the doctor today, I was talking to the nurse.
“I’m like, ‘Oh, you know, you guys please understand I haven’t been doing this for five years. I’ve been doing it for like eight weeks, dealing with just the quarantine.’ I’m literally still trying to gain my bearings with everything and shit. Like I said I feel better, I wouldn’t have did this [listening party] if I didn’t feel better.”
Cons doesn’t plan on giving up. After all, he has his 9-year-old son Caiden Mills to look after. But he does understand he’s going to have some bad days, and that’s OK.
“One thing I learned through this whole thing is that it’s alright to be sad about things,” he says. “I’m going to be honest with you, even myself, if I didn’t go through the sadness of having to almost say goodbye to myself, then I wouldn’t be in the mood that I’m in now.
“If I would’ve had to do it, the only thing I would really think about was my boy. I lived, I did all the crazy shit I did. I’m not saying that’s a good thing to go through, but it definitely helped me just reshape how I respond when I actually do have to deal with death. Because of the fact that, I just know now what’s really important.”
The Things Are Different Now EP is expected to arrive on October 23.
