You’re Mentally Deranged – Every One of You – I can Prove it

16629317_mBefore It’s News – by Nietzsches Cat

The American Psychiatric Association is set to approve a new version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the Holy Bible of practicing psychologists, this spring.  It’s the fifth such major revision and by far the most controversial.

DSM 5 adds hundreds of new diagnoses.  Going by this book, almost everybody in America is mentally ill; most of us should be on medication, too.  Following are a few issues raised by Dr. Allen Frances, MD.   He was chair of the DSM 4 Task Force and is a professor emeritus at Duke University.

This is, of course, excellent news for the gun control activists.  Now they will have a dozen reasons to lock up anybody for any reason anytime they want to. 

You can read his full article here, at the Psychology Today website.

“1) Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder: DSM 5 will turn temper tantrums into a mental disorder– a puzzling decision based on the work of only one research group. We have no idea whatever how this untested new diagnosis will play out in real life practice settings, but my fear is that it will exacerbate, not relieve, the already excessive and inappropriate use of medication in young children.

2) Normal grief will become Major Depressive Disorder, thus medicalizing and trivializing our expectable and necessary emotional reactions to the loss of a loved one and substituting pills and superficial medical rituals for the deep consolations of family, friends, religion, and the resiliency that
comes with time and the acceptance of the limitations of life.

3) The every day forgetting characteristic of old age will now be misdiagnosed as Minor Neurocognitive Disorder, creating a huge false positive population of people who are not at special risk for dementia

4) DSM 5 will likely trigger a fad of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder leading to widespread misuse of stimulant drugs for performance enhancement and recreation and contributing to the already large illegal secondary market in diverted prescription drugs.

5) Excessive eating 12 times in 3 months is no longer just a manifestation of gluttony and the easy availability of really great tasting food. DSM 5 has instead turned it into a psychiatric illness called Binge Eating Disorder.

6) The changes in the DSM 5 definition of Autism will result in lowered rates– 10% according to estimates by the DSM 5 work group, perhaps 50% according to outside research groups

7) First time substance abusers will be lumped in definitionally in with hard core addicts despite their very different treatment needs and prognosis and the stigma this will cause.

8) DSM 5 has created a slippery slope by introducing the concept of Behavioral Addictions that eventually can spread to make a mental disorder of everything we like to do a lot. Watch out forcareless overdiagnosis of internet and sex addiction and the development of lucrative treatment programs to exploit these new markets.

9) DSM 5 obscures the already fuzzy boundary between Generalized Anxiety Disorder and the worries of everyday life. Small changes in definition can create millions of anxious new ‘patients’ and expand the already widespread practice of inappropriately prescribing addicting anti-anxiety medications.

10) DSM 5 has opened the gate even further to the already existing problem of misdiagnosis of PTSD in forensic settings.”

So, according to this President Obama’s “recreational” use of cocaine as a teenager makes him a hard-core druggie.  This is reinforced by his addiction to tobacco (he still smokes, even though he bulliesthe entire White House staff to not divulge this – those temper tantrums are a no-no.)

Thank you, DSM 5.  Now I have proof that  Obama belongs in a padded cell.

  1. Do not ever talk to psychlolgises they are all witch doctors,whom they will use to take you guns for any far feched reason. Never take a psychologise test you will always come out of it on the… you need help end, these people are the nuts. Grief really, just shows who the wackos are…

    1. I want someone’s opinion on the state of the information war. I, like most of you, have been reading about and observing the decline of the United States as well as the world in general. I have heard about the Cabal, the 13 wealthiest families, the Rothschilds, and on and on of the many forces in the world and what they are trying to do. The Georgia guide stones, GMO’s, HAARP, FEMA camps,etc. It seems to me that we are all in agreement that we are headed in a dangerous direction. We are being forced to accept what has already come down the pike. So, what mechanism along this road to hell is going to make people act? Are we simply going to “Wait and see” how it goes? There must be a trigger. If these forces are going to do what we read about, then what are we waiting for? Are we going to continue to read about what they want to do and simply share the latest insane story? I don’t think I understand how much more information it’s going to take. if every American knew everything, would we act then? Is our apathy going to sink this country? Why would it have to come down to doing nothing when we already have enough information that tells us we are going to have to fight sooner or later? A civil war seems inevitable…unless someone has a different Idea as to how we stop this madness to hell.

  2. Unfortunately, in my case, I cannot dispute the assertion of the title of this article.

    But then again, I’m in good company here. 🙂


    1. Yes #1, I like to think that we are in good company here too, and I think we are. The psych. dr.s like to put every one in a catogory to make themselves feel powerfull over everyone else. It works too for them sometimes, and then all of a sudden there is a group of people that doesn`t buy into it, and that is where those like us on this site come into play and they just do not know what to think and they have to come up with another diagnosis. Ya know #1, I always thought that people were all supposed to be different, ya know we are all a unique individual and that there are no two people alike but them Psyco dr.s seem to want every one to be the same and to be predictable. Yep #1 we are in the best of good company here bro.

  3. Not only will they keep you from owning a firearm but all these O’Bamacare Physicia-nut doctors will have the power to call the sheriff and have you locked up because a doctor said “you are a danger to yourself and others”.

  4. I used to work as a provider in a pain and anxiety treatment center. Attending staffings in which patient care is discussed while the drug reps provide pizza or chinese food, I finally came to realize that they don’t give a s**t about anything except the bottom line. Patients who needed a much less expensive procedure for symptom management were recommended for very expensive procedures that posed more risk as well, so long as they had the good insurance. So in reality, the better health insurance you have may increase your risk of more dangerous and expensive procedures being recommended. Back in those days, a laminectomy was a $6,000-$10,000 procedure where an anterior/posterier fusion was $130,000. In one year they performed over 120 of those procedures when even the Mayo Clinic found only 12 patients deemed appropriate for the same procedure in the same year. I sleep alot better since leaving the medical field.

  5. they are expanding what it is to be unstable so when you get a background check to get a gun you are denied because you like pizza and women in bikinis

    1. LOL! Of course, that would be classified unstable, because you forgot the beer and left on the bikini!

  6. So you have a percentage not able to get a gun…you still have millions who already have them. If you go after them, it’s still a gun grab and we know how people feel about that..they are at square one with people who already own weapons.
