So I went to an Anti-Stigma meeting with my “Young Adult Group” last Thursday and one of the major points was that people with MI (schizophrenia is what they were really talking about) are geniuses and I really didn’t get that because if we are such geniuses than how do we come to be so disabled? She drove the point that we are creatively intelligent and have genius level intelligence. I can’t remember if she gave out information on a test showing this but I’m pretty sure she never said anything of the case.
I also remember that on the site here somewhere there is a list of all known home remedies thought to help and those that are known to have false hype and don’t work/make things worse, art was one of these that have a huge hype but proven to not be helpful.
But what do you think? Do you think we are geniuses or do you think we are disabled?
