> LostBoy, is that the DSM code or ICD-9-CM? Your ICD-10 code would be far more detailed. Of course the rest of the world uses ICD-10, while the US still hasn't got on board yet.

Jaynee, that is the DSM code. I never even heard of the system you are talking about. The system you are talking about sounds very similar to the DSM system. I dont believe the DSM system is very good, its too generalized and too "psychobabblish." Id prefer it if all the severe forms of mental illness were just totally formally removed from the category of psychiatric or psychological illness and recategorized as Neurological illnesses of the brain. And use neuroimaging studies to classify people. Thats a much more scientific and respectable way to diagnose people.

I have some secondary disorders like headaches, hypertension, GERD. And Ive seen things like "unemployment" listed in my psychiatric records listed as secondary "stressors." I have full copies of most of my psychiatric records and they are not like regular medical records.

I dont like being placed in some category like psychologists do and labeled like they do. Id prefer it to be treated as a medical issue, which is really what it is anyway. Im not a "case" to be managed. Im a person...a genuine, alive human being with a brain. I dislike the current system used in the USA and your system doesnt sound any better to me to be honest.

We would all be better off if this psychological relationship to severe "mental illness" was removed and if this stuff was treated like say, parkinsons disease by a Neurologist.
