Mental health professionals aren't supposed to diagnose people they don't actually treat.

It's possible he didn't do that, anyway. It's possible that they asked this guy to supply a theory and he threw out some information...it's impossible to know what he really said when the information was given to you out of context and realayed to you third-hand.

I'm angry on your behalf that your husband is not doing a good job of acting like he's on your side (I always think that spouses should stick up for each other in front of parents...you're a TEAM).

Anyway, if they're sticking you with labels of any kind, it's probably their way of gaining power in the family hierarchy. If it wasn't mental illness, maybe it would be something else.

And "chemist" has a good point about off-label uses for drugs. In fact, if you used your in-laws' logic, then every man who took Rogaine before it was approved for marketing as a hair-loss remedy would HAVE to have a heart condition. That's what the drug was created for. The baldness cure was a side-effect.
