Chances are 1%!

1% of the world Population has schizophrenia or related degrees of psychosis.
Another 1% or so have other ailments, probably another unknown % dies of unknown causes, another unknown % has cancer so on and so forth...
I didnt ever ever think that very soon my family would be part of that percentage which is miniscule yet has consequences of unknown dimensions.
I dont take that 1% casually any more!!
One percent chance of the wbc count falling due to clozapine. I wasnt going to take for granted any more being part of the magical 99%.
What do I do to ensure my child is in that 99%?
The doctors offer no solutions,care at home has little to do with it so I turned to prayers..

If you're pregnant,...then make sure you keep away from any chemical fumes, drugs, alcohol, cigarrettes. If your son is an infant or toddler, make sure not to drop them on their head, don't give them any alcohol, drugs, or cigarrettes. If your son is grown up, there's nothing you can do...it's all up to genetics from there on.

sorry Dreamway, with Ur third part, I don't agree. yeap there are lot of things which one cannot cope with. but still lot of things can be done. one just cannot leave own son just like that. Prayers help to give power but ways are found by human only.........

don't be so helpless, God bless all of us.
