Recently, I was given a diagnosis of an extremely uncommon neurological ailment known as the stiff-person syndrome.
This condition affects around one in a million individuals, and mine is the only known case of it. We are still studying about this very unusual ailment, but at this point we are aware that this is what has been causing all of the spasms that I have been experiencing.
Sadly, these spasms influence every area of my day-to-day life, sometimes making it difficult for me to walk and preventing me from utilizing my vocal chords to sing in the manner that I am used to.
