I have mental illness (MI).
(Note: we don't say "I suffer from cancer" or "I am stricken by diabetes". I am not suffering thanks to medication, and I am not stricken.)

My MI is treatable. It's unipolar depression. Bipolar and schizophrenia are much more resistant to treatment, alas. That makes me very sad. MI patients understand how terrible and destructive MI can be.

Some say that MIs are not crazy, just different, but MI can damage you. It damages your health, shortens your lifespan, destroys the vital connections to your friends and family, and limits your ability to enjoy and experience the wonders of the world around us.

Given all this, I'd like to see this comic book succeed beyond all expectation. What can I do to help, including monetary support?
