We are neurologically challenged not mentally ill. They have been able to change the perception on retardation to mentally challenged or physically challenged vs handicapped. What a difference that has made in those effected by the neuro imblances or challenges, to their self worth and their families.Autistic children are known for having very high IQs yet they cant convey it in words or normal interactions with people, but they are no less worthy of our love and respect as you and I. I have a challenged child, but our school system works hard at protecting them and educating the student population on bullying and acceptance. The majority of SSDI are neuro cases, and the number is staggering according to the new outlets. If it is that high does that not tell you that the probability that someone in your own family, possibly house is also, yet you view them as normal and love them just the same so why are we rejected or thrown out or stigmatized. Also over 80% of our senior population see a neurologist for one thing or another yet it is considered aging at that point. But its been in the genetic make up all along.
