Hey Guys, 

I've been writing for about 15 years now and the one constant that has seemed to be pervasive throughout my entire career is that it's really hard to make a living as a writer. I thought getting my name in big places like The New York Times and Scientific American would change that but unfortunately it hasn't.

I write about living with schizophrenia because it's what I know and I have valuable insight into the myriad facets of the illness having experienced it since I was twenty years old. Schizophrenia is the niche I've found for making a living as a writer. 

Unfortunately that niche can only do so much. 

By contributing to this project you'll be helping me pay my rent, buy food and hopefully get off government assistance so that I can support myself as a person living with disability. 

In exchange, you'll get a fresh, never frozen essay about living with schizophrenia (or something generally psychology related) every Monday on theschizophreniablog.com.

Your support means the world to me and even just a dollar an essay would be extremely appreciated. 

Thanks and hit me up if you have any questions!

-Mike
