Of course you have. Everyone has and the new movie "A Brilliant Mind" is pushing it to the front pages again.
Did you know this? About 1% of the population will develop schizophrenia during their lifetime - - most frequently during young adulthood. Many people incorrectly think schizophrenia is the same as multiple personalities when, in reality, it is a totally different disorder.
Sound familiar? It should, because clusters affect somewhere around 1% or just slightly less and very often strike during a person's 20's or 30's. Clusters are often confused with migraines, as we all know.
So why is schizophrenia virtually a household word while clusters is almost unheard of?
Why is the treatment of schizophrenia the object of numerous research studies and trials, and why are there so many meds developed for it?
The answer has to lie in awareness.
How many other disorders are just as rare as clusters but more well known? What do we need to do to increase awareness of clusters? How do we get the media attention we need?
Ideas are anti-free. Not free, because they require us to exert brainpower to come up with them. But the brain acts just like a muscle...the more you use it, the stronger it gets. So exercising your brain to come up with some ideas not only helps our cause but strengthens your brain....anti-free.
What more could you ask for?
