I have an affective disorder and I allowed it to define me as a creator. Whatever I do, I treat like art. I'm horrible at monetizing my projects. My only driving force is my internal motivation — I make things not because I want to, but because I can't just stop and take a rest.
On the other hand, this allows me to keep going when others stop, raising the bar higher and higher.
