In the case of psychiatric/brain related pathologies, DISEASE would be the one where we understand the etiology of a cluster of symptoms or AT LEAST we know(can proove) that there is a biological causation that is physical (versus psychogenic/psychological) ... DISORDER refer to a cluster of symptoms that we group and label in order to more effectively treat them .. the day we both get a DISEASE diagnostic rather than a DISORDER one is a day I'm looking forward to .. I'm about 30 and so I expect to see this before I die. (finger crossed for the genetic therapy..)
BTW -> I know that EVERYTHING I JUST SAID (like most things I already told you) YOU ALREADY KNEW SINCE DECADES. .. I don't underestimate you. Quite the opposite (not overestimate, just estimate)

Of course. I'm just pointing to the fact that IT WILL happen .. and until it does we're stuck with trying a truck load of different molecule quasi-randomly ..

Only a fool could think otherwise.. but.. wait a min ........ :|
