what's in a diagnosis?

Posted by Christ_empowered on November 10, 2017, at 15:56:51

My current diagnosis (from the psychiatrist) is Bipolar I w/some obsessive stuff. The counselor leans towards the manic version of Schizoaffective. My community has labeled me "Schizophrenic." Well, that an "uppity mental patient." fun times, lol.

what goes into these labels? my parents now take care of me, and I get disability. They're...not rich, but "well-to-do" (my former psychiatrist's term, actually, LOL), professionals, etc. Is their social class part of the reason my primary diagnosis is still Bipolar I of some sort?

and then my label of "Schizophrenia," in the community. clearly, that's a straight up invalidation. Can't complain, too is what it is, basically.

what do y'all think?
