Symptoms & Treatments of Mental Disorders, or LIFE AS PATHOLOGY

 

I was going to highlight those symptoms-disorders that the average person (foolishly) believes are merely variations of “normal” behaviors, physical conditions and/or disease, but the list is bat-crap crazy The categorizing of child academic difficulties with math and reading / writing as “mental disorders” is astounding! I’m amazed that constipation and diarrhea haven’t been sucked in by the DSM vacuum cleaner.

The symptom lists below have been summarized from current diagnostic criteria most commonly used in the United States by mental health professionals (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). We’ve divided the disorders into three broad categories below: adult, childhood, and personality disorders; some disorders may fall under more than one category.

These disorder lists are in the process of being updated to reflect the changes from the latest edition of the diagnosis manual, the DSM-5.

Please keep in mind that only an experienced mental health professional can make an actual diagnosis. But who, exactly, are these people?

Looking for a DSM code? The DSM 5 is designed to ensure obscene profits for the “Mental” Health Industry and Big Pharma; actual people who need help have been abandoned –

ADULT DISORDERS

Common Disorders

Dissociative Disorders

Feeding & Eating Disorders

Sexual & Paraphilic Disorders

Sleep & Wake Disorders

CHILDHOOD DISORDERS

Childhood disorders, often labeled as developmental disorders or learning disorders, most often occur and are diagnosed when the child is of school-age. Although some adults may also relate to some of the symptoms of these disorders, typically the disorder’s symptoms need to have first appeared at some point in the person’s childhood.

PERSONALITY DISORDERS

These disorders typically aren’t diagnosed until an individual is a young adult, often not until their 20’s or even 30’s. Most individuals with personality disorders lead pretty normal lives and often only seek psychotherapeutic treatment during times of increased stress or social demands. Most people can relate to some or all of the personality traits listed; the difference is that it does not affect most people’s daily functioning to the same degree it might someone diagnosed with one of these disorders. Personality disorders tend to be an intergral part of a person, and therefore, are difficult to treat or “cure.” Learn more about personality disorders and personality traits

List of Mental Disorders DSM 5 / Aye, yai, yai!

4 thoughts on “List of Mental Disorders DSM 5 / Aye, yai, yai!

  1. 🙂 Oh yes. I forgot. Thanks for reminding me. A majority of British voters decided to segregate from Germany. Or German Imperialist Union or what it´s called…
    Must be ASODD. Anglo Saxon Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Nasty brats!
    In France many people are starting to rise against the elites and their political staff. This is pathological as well and police and media are doing their best to give them a proper lobotomy.

    “Religious obsession with a supernatural universe gets “a pass”. Yes. Having been raised Roman Catholic I had to learn at the age of nine that we were going to drink a dead guy´s blood and eat his flesh. And no, it´s not in a metaphorical manner. It´s really his flesh and blood, just that at the same time it´s physically some biscuit and wine. Pretty insane, isn´t it? Go try and tell stuff like that to a psychiatrist without the religious context.
    I was repulsed. Not by the notion of being a cannibal, but by the nonsense of this conception. Made me doubt my religion and set me on my way to become an atheist, some four or five years later.

    • “Anglo-Saxon Oppositional Disorder” I love it! This gives me a “double diagnosis” Anglo-Saxon AND Asperger! Our family chose to be Episcopalian, which was known as RC Lite! Lots of stage craft without the “context”- In summer there was an early service for golfers, so that they could make “Tee” time. The real event was coffee hour. After services, the lawyers, accountants, MDs and business execs could catch up on news and opportunities. So there wasn’t much pressure to “believe” anything. We were supposed to be Confirmed (?) at some point, but I managed to “stall” for several years because the consequence was Communion – it was creepy, as you say. To me it was “confirmation” that adults are either liars or delusional: they didn’t get that consuming blood and flesh is cannibalism. We never talked about religion at home, beyond which casserole my mother would take to a potluck supper, so it was easy to avoid conflict. I was born atheist, which I identify as a “symptom” of Aspergers. I’ve come across a few AS who are “drowning” in religious belief – suffering really. I think it’s a “big clue” that something is not right if your beliefs are making you incredibly unhappy!

  2. They´ve been leaving out Geography disorder. A severe impairment, prevalent mostly in the USA, but spreading.
    Well, I´ve been discussing neurodiversity some three years ago with a guy who usually is quite open-minded (and also bat-shit crazy, as he readily admits). When I came to mention asexuality, he interrupted, exclaming: “But THAT REALLY IS a mental illness!” I guess to all the socially-oriented folks, no matter how far on the edge they are themselves, somebody else has to be the outsider, the alien, the sub-human. But why asexuals? Why are they so offending?
    Let´s say somebody just doesn´t want to fuck and isn´t sexually aroused, by noone and nothing… So what? No harm is being done. If there is individual suffering involved, it´s mainly inflicted (directly or mediated) by society´s pressure or expectations.
    In the description of “Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder” it says “The judgment of deficiency or absence is made by the clinician”. Of course, but: Not so elegant. I´m pretty glad that these days more asexual humans are not only aware of society´s threat against them, but start to speak up for themselves.
    Right now millions of people in Europe (and beyond) are watching some guys playing with a ball. Many of the viewers getting very emotional about how the guys handle the ball. This disturbing phenomenon is not covered by the DSM. Says it all!

    • I keep checking “the news” to see if the hysteria on the part of Eurotypicals (and the entire financial globe) will subside. How “infantile” can people be? No one has shot the Archduke, German tanks are not rolling across Poland, and the Japanese have not bombed Pearl Harbor. One slap in the face, and the Elites, whose entire perception of the world is filtered through the insane proposition that God created them to run the Universe, turn out to be terrified rabbits. And they’re blaming “old uneducated English people” – How dare those people even vote! That’s right: If you want people to go along with your obscene plans for humanity, let them know that you consider them to be “worthless.”

      The DSM is a religious document of oppression: We don’t like your behavior, whatever it is, and if we haven’t gotten around to “shaming” you yet, just wait, we’re inventing diagnosis as fast as we can. Religious obsession with a supernatural universe gets “a pass” because magical thinking keeps authority figures in control. Sports fall within the same protection: Would the Ancient Roman DSM have listed “OWG: Obsession with Gladiators” or “BSA: Blood-Sport Addiction” as disorders?
