Mike Posner Reveals He's Struggling to Walk After Rattlesnake Bite

Posner had been walking his way across Colorado when he got bitten by a rattlesnake.

Posner took to Instagram again overnight to provide an update on his situation, noting he has been forced to use a walker while he attempts to recuperate.

"I'm on my way back", he wrote in the caption.

Posner set out on his walking journey from New Jersey back in April, with his plan being to walk 20 miles a day, reaching California next month.

"I knew walking across America was going to be risky", Posner wrote Sunday on Instagram. 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. Lyrics include: "Walked across OH, took me 50 days / I talked to the stars, they were happy that I came / Some days I'm a genius, others I'm insane". I still might. So don't feel sorry for me.

Posner, 31, who is known for writing songs such as Cooler Than Me" and "I Took a Pill in Ibiza, ' posted an Instagram video of himself Friday on a hospital gurney. "I'm proud of this pain".

He added: "If you understand this message, do not leave me sympathy comments, just write KEEP GOING".

He continued, "I got to the hospital and got the anti-venom in time".

"That venom is no joke!" he clarified.

Posner wrote in the post that he'd been treated with antivenin and would be spending a few weeks off his feet to recover, but planned to resume his cross-country trek.

We are wishing the best to Mike in his recovery.

Posner embarked on a hike across the USA in April, starting in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
