Thank you for leaving a link on my blog 'Running on Empty', on the post, 'It's a Time Bomb'.
I printed out your very interesting article...all 25 pages so I can pass it around to my siblings.

If you read my most recent post, 'Am I My Brother's Keeper', you will see we are still struggling with schizophrenia. So far I've lost 3 brothers at a fairly young age, 27, 52, and 54. Also to date we have one grandchild with downs syndrome, one with a form of dwarfism, and as I mentionned I have 3 other siblings that are 'clearly off the wall' and I would give anything to get them diagnosed but that won't happen.
