• Former WCW Wrestler Vampiro Posts Emotional Video About His Mental Health

Former WCW Wrestler Vampiro shared a very emotional video on Facebook, where he talked about dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.

Below is what Vampiro said in the video:

“I’m lost. I don’t know where I am. I gotta stay strong, right? I’m having a major panic attack. This Alzheimer’s thing, some of the effects are I forget why I’m supposed to be where I’m at. I’ve been sitting in my car for about 40 minutes and I don’t know what to do. It comes and goes and it’s really hard.

I’m trying so hard. I’m going to come back and I’m going to be ok. But I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to take those drugs anymore. I don’t want to take that medicine. It makes me a f**king zombie. But when I don’t take it, I don’t know what’s going on.

If you have anybody in your life that are going through these issues, like mental health, please understand it’s an every day, all day thing. It never goes away.”

You can watch the complete video below:

A Go Fund Me page for Vampiro is currently open to help him receive stem cell replacement therapy. The goal is $22,000 and $2,690 have been raised as of this writing. You can donate by tapping here.

You can read the Go Fund Me description for his page below:

“Hello …

I am nervous and embarrassed to be asking for help.

I am just a guy, no different than anyone, nothing special.

Because of all my injuries , I am stuck and really, can’t continue to do what I do to make a living or be there for my daughter. I want to live, and I want to be a dad.

I also want to be better, so I can continue to wrestle, and continue to help the next generation , be a role model and inspire people to understand that mental health issues are not the end of life… it’s just the beginning.

I want to be the one who is the guy who said f*ck you to the stigmas , limitations and poor excuses you get from the medical community and society , saying you can’t succeed in life and give the middle finger to all and anyone who looks down on anyone who needs help.

I can beat this but I need help. I have not had an income In a year so I am stuck. Once I am better I will give a portion of all my earnings to people who need help, support and financial aid . It’s so hard , but , I can beat this . I have the desire , I have the heart, but I am hurting bad . Critical pain from the injuries and well, this alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and the chronic arthritis in my whole body, well to me it’s just bullsh*t and I can beat this.

I am asking for help so I can get stem cell replacement therapy in Columbia at the end of the year, once I have that, I will dedicate my life to helping others even more than I already do.

Stem Cell Replacement therapy I believe will save many many lives … right now I need it to save mine.

I am eternally grateful for you even considering to help me, You don’t know me and you don’t have to, but I need it so I am asking.

With or without help I am gonna continue a million miles an hour and do what I can to support others, inspire, and beat this.

Again , I’m just a guy and I have so much more to give, all I can do is fight, and fight I will.

If you decide to help me, I will hold you in my heart forever. Even if you don’t, I already hold all of you there anyways!

I can only try … and regardless.. music, pro wrestling, the guardian angels, and my daughter, and all of you …, that’s my world , and I have so much desire to get better and help others .

I won’t quit or slow down, can’t, it’s not in my DNA.

I am a warrior, and, it is the hardest thing to admit all this and ask for help.

again, thank you, once I beat this , I will help the world hear our voice.

one love, PMA
