Any American Clusterheads collecting S.S. disability benefits?? Anyone with info on whether Clusterheads are able to do this?? We are suffering greatly, shouldn't we be taken into consideration for some type of financial help from our wealthy government?? Let me know if anyone has info regarding this question... chambm@yahoo.com

On a completely different topic, I spend 8 months out of the year in Dharamsala India, ( Home to the Tibetan Government in exile ) I am a volunteer with TYC ( Tibetan Youth Congress ) the largest NGO in Tibetan exile. I am constantly communicating with X-political prisoners who have escaped and climbed over the Himalayas to India. These people have lived through real live horrific torture in prison. I am drawn to this issue due to my suffering with my Demon. The way I see it: We ( Clusterheads ) suffer greatly but due to a condition that we have very little control over, right?? These people in Chinese prisons are suffering physically and mentally as much if not much more than us, but it's due to ignorance not clinical physiological issues. I have dedicated almost all of my time to this " Cause " directly because I can't stand the concept that people are suffering for no reason other than " other people's ignorance ". We suffer because there is no way to end the pain, they suffer because some people choose to not understand the meaning of suffering, real suffering. I realize that most of you probably don't have a clue about Tibet and it's situation or how political prisoners suffer in Tibet under Chinese rule, however, I was wondering if the Cluster-Community would be inclined to put some effort into helping to end the needless suffering of thousands?? It's a tangible way of helping to stop suffering in general or as I like to think of it " Other peoples Demons ". Being as we can't do a lot to fight our Demon ( in a tangible way ) maybe it would benefit us and the Tibetans to help fight their Demons. I know it's done a lot for me and my battle with my Demon and thought it would be great for a " suffering community " such as ours to get involved with another " suffering community " and make a difference in their lives. Just a thought, I realize that it's a long-shot but if anyone would like to get involved please feel free to e-mail me at chambm@yahoo.com. Thanks for listening...
