Being Crazy is Expensive

Fun title, right?

I mean crazy on a few levels:
1. Treatment for bipolar disorder
2. Living on the other side of the world
3. Refusing to take the easy job that would get me more money, a place to live, airfare home once a year, good health insurance, etc. because I don't want to steer my career in the English teaching direction
4. I'm sure there's more.

So why am I pointing this out? And why is this post so much shorter than my usual looooong posts?

Because I want to ask a favor of you, my readers. Please help me get more readers, because if I can get a lot of readers, maybe I can be one of those people who gets their blog turned into a book.

Then I'd be able to afford being crazy. For now, I just have to struggle with money and hope that my hard work pays off later. The problem is that it's hard to work hard when all the working I'm doing makes the bipolar symptoms worse. So I feel like I'm just running around after work and on the weekends trying to make ends meet and I can't prove myself at work and earn a raise. Conundrum!

Hence the book idea. Help!
