About the Blog

Welcome. I started this blog for two reasons. First, I want to help raise awareness about mental illness and do what I can to minimize its stigma. I’ll be adding a lot of my own posts, but I encourage you to participate by contributing comments and telling me what type of content you’d like to see.

Second, it’s a shameless plug for my book, Dopamine Diary. It’s my story, available on Amazon. I wrote it for the same reasons I created this blog. Here’s what one reviewer said about it:

I have read any number of novels addressing mental health issues but I have never read such a vivid description of what it feels like, moment by moment, to be in the grip of paralyzing paranoia and depression.
