How are you defining "serious mental illness"? Is, say, suicidal feelings that last for a period of a year or so and then go away a "serious
mental illness" to you? It is to the people who have it and it is to the APA.
What about night terrors? A lot of us have them and the APA classifies them as "serioius, but something that can be fixed with meds/counseling."
Maybe you scoff it off, but if you'd ever been awakened by them 2-5 times per week for a period of 10 years, you might think it was serious.
They are increasing and expanding the sub-catagories to make more people look insane when they actually aren't.
I think you're confusing "serious mental illness" with "insane." They're not the same thing. A person can have a low IQ or have Aspergers --
but they're not psychotic. I have a nephew (toddler) who's autistic -- he's classified in this same category in DSMV -- but no, he's not
Are you saying you think this baby's insane? The DSMV doesn't label him as insane.
The motivation behind this is; Scientology is right on alot of their stances against drugs to curb behavioral and Emotional disorders.
The only thing I've seen Scientology cure is "money in your bank account." And if you've seen Tom Cruise and heard all his weirdly disjointed
ramblings lately, I'm surprised you haven't gotten suspicious of the whole thing. The man sounds like he has some serious problems -- really.
So, anyway, what do YOU think it's all about? Are you seriously convinced that anyone with depression/anxiety/autism/etc can be cured by Scientology
and don't need any other help?
