Ummm.... Why do we need to keep inventing new conditions and diagnosis?
It must be about the designer drugs.
Nothing else makes sense.

The name "Gattaca" is composed entirely of the letters used to label the nucleotide bases of DNA. The four nitrogen bases of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are ..(GATC)...
You have teachers and professionals treating it like an illness, and the researchers knowing its a very needed variation of human.
I gather TPTB just don't like people being master planners. But they can shove it, they are not going to win with the new energies coming in, the only win possible is progression and equality and that will only happen for them, if they come out and confess, and start to use all their assets to make up for the slavery and inequality, and become servants of humanity.
A diagnosis is only made if the described item inhibits a person's ability to function. A shy person would not be diagnosed. A person who is so shy that they are unable to pursue happiness could use some help.
The DSM IV is published by the American Psychiatric Association. Much of the information from the Psychiatric Disorders pages is summarized from the pages of this text. Should any questions arise concerning incongruencies or inaccurate information, you should always default to the DSM as the ultimate guide to mental disorders.
The DSM uses a multiaxial or multidimensional approach to diagnosing because rarely do other factors in a person's life not impact their mental health. It assesses five dimensions as described below:
Axis I: Clinical Syndromes
This is what we typically think of as the diagnosis (e.g., depression, schizophrenia, social phobia)
Axis II: Developmental Disorders and Personality Disorders
Developmental disorders include autism and mental retardation, disorders which are typically first evident in childhood
Personality disorders are clinical syndromes which have a more long lasting symptoms and encompass the individual's way of interacting with the world. They include Paranoid, Antisocial, and Borderline Personality Disorders.
Axis III: Physical Conditions which play a role in the development, continuance, or exacerbation of Axis I and II Disorders
Physical conditions such as brain injury or HIV/AIDS that can result in symptoms of mental illness are included here.
Axis IV: Severity of Psychosocial Stressors
Events in a persons life, such as death of a loved one, starting a new job, college, unemployment, and even marriage can impact the disorders listed in Axis I and II. These events are both listed and rated for this axis.
Axis V: Highest Level of Functioning
On the final axis, the clinician rates the person's level of functioning both at the present time and the highest level within the previous year. This helps the clinician understand how the above four axes are affecting the person and what type of changes could be expected.
What happens when a "mis-diagnosis" leads to long term damage.
(The Ritalin scandal for example)
Or worse yet, a "convenient" mis-diagnosis made by a professional with an agenda that may not be for the benefit of a patient.
These new "mental illnesses" are a prime target for corruption.
That's the point.
The intention of this thread is to wake up and alert as many potential victims as possible,
The only thing people need to be 'alert' about is believing what someone tells them without investigating the statements independently, and/or when that someone says "you don't need to read up on it, I know what I'm talking about." and blindly follows 'medical advice.'
