Great article, sounds like he’s doing what he enjoys which is always a good thing. I agree completely that people who have to deal with a severe mental illness should be respected and accepted for who they are…as a whole not just their illness.

Schizophrenia is a really horrifying disorder, symptoms like hallucinations/delusions etc sometimes never go away. People sometimes use headphones to try and distract themselves from the constant voices/hallucinations, also cool that he was aware enuf to take control and not listen to what the voices were saying.

I can see where people are coming from regarding the exploitation concern, hopefully this guy is competent enuf to deal with the business of it all or has someone he can trust working with him to ensure he gets what he’s due.
He’s working, doing what he loves, coping with a significant challenge…gotta love that!!!
