Lady Gaga‘s dog air wanders around the country trying to heal his emotional wounds from the horrific shooting … and he says he’s fallen in hard times.
Ryan Fischer says he’s 2 months inside a 6-month trip across America, which he calls a sabbatical, but now he crowdfunds … because he says his van broke down and he needs money for travel expenses.
He says he has been addicted to donations after blowing through his savings, and he not only looks for money … he also asks people to recommend retreats for trauma plus queer spiritual leaders and healers.
Ryan says he has felt scared, lonely, abandoned and unsupported during his first 2 months on the road … adding that he has had long bouts of depression, doubt and self-pity.
TMZ broke the story … Ryan was shot back in February when robbers got rid of Lady Gaga’s French bulldogs, Koji and Gustav … leaving Ryan bleeding on the sidewalk screaming for help.
The dogs were eventually found unharmed, and LAPD later arrested 5 suspects for the attempted murder and dog attack.
Ryan says he had to get out of Hollywood, where he “fought for my life and mobility” after being shot, and now he is dedicated to strengthening his emotional and mental health.
He says he seeks out communities that support those who are recovering from trauma, including retreat centers, trauma programs, queer healers, creative and spiritual leaders … but he needs help to get there, now that his Ford Falcon – car from 1991 bed dusted.
