I hate feeling so left out in a way, not in others!


Picked up this “new arrival” library book at the college, called Saving Normal by this psychiatrist who was in charge of the writing of DSM 4 and critical of DSM 5 as psychiatry gone amok and wild in overdiagnosing things. thought it would help me or satisfy my frustrations whatever they may be. Anyhow not even a mention of sz but plenty of discussion about other disorders being over diagnosed or misdiagnosed. Good book by the way. But is schizophrenia so unmistakable and well defined after all? No chance in hell I don’t have it then? I don’t like sz being left out of the analysis of a comprehensive discussion on mental illness but hey I am glad they have at least this disorder right! desimb
