As much as big pharma like to push they're medications not all doctors are pill pushers.

Its pretty nuts, but hey big pharm does have that power. They just want us to take pills so we are docil when they take over. Bastards.
The "disorders" they are listing are only considered disorders when it hinders the persons life. For example, a person who binge eats to the point that it is pathologic or interferes with their regular life activities (sleeping, working).

I suppose it can be said that the people that are trying to sell these drugs are also in need of some of their own medicine to keep them from cracking up about the new found medicine they are pushing. Next it will be out dogs and cats that will need pills to calm them down.

I do fear less people are willing to take the hard road and there will be less and less people with a certain kind of wisdom in the future deteriorating society as a whole. This will have many effects like children not being able to learn how to cope with life's downsides, being used to quick fixes and instant gratification they will only choose drugs for their children lateron in life instead of dealing with issues by communicating because they've never learnt how to talk about it.
