I am a highly overeducated man who has Bipolar Disorder that has disallowed me from working for money--thus I went into the lucrative world of art. I have a Ph.D. in Middle Eastern Studies and taught college for 17 years until I became disabled. I have recently broken my back and so the other love of my life, hiking and camping, has been taken away until the evil that is insurance decides I have lived through enough pain to warrant back surgery.
Bipolar Depressives are not violent towards others. It is a fallacy that they are. People should not be afraid of us and mental illness should, rather than being made fun of, be discussed openly so that everyone can understand it. My artwork has been my salvation in my struggle with depression and has saved my life on numerous occasions.
I am currently writing three books and illustrating them. They have to do with Anachreon, the world where time is a mess.
I advocate for those with Mental Illnesses and if anyone needs to talk to someone please don't hesitate to look me up.
