Mike Posner – who penned songs like Boyfriend and Beneath Your Beautiful – is on the road to recovery after a scary rattlesnake bite
The 31-year-old is on an odyssey across the United States, from New Jersey to California, in honour of Mac Miller and Avicii, as well as his own late father.
In a post on his Instagram (uploaded on Sunday), Mike said about the incident: “I knew walking across America was going to be dangerous. I knew I could die doing it. I still might. So don’t feel sorry for me,”.
He went on: “I’m proud I’m in this hospital after chasing my dream and not sitting on the couch watching Netflix. I’m proud of this pain.”
Mike also shared a video of himself ‘learning to walk’.

From 24 miles per day to using this walker to get to bathroom. I’m on my way back. Gonna rebuild with patience and equanimity. HUGE shout outs to Stephanie, Fergie, Bo, Angie, Eddie, mike, dr black, dr van Birmingham, dr Gordon, dr Shapiro, Natalie, carol, Megan, Jeremy, and my whole family in ICU. Molly and her husband from PT are gonna come help me walk again tomorrow. KEEP GOING.
