This is a real hot button for me. Since the DSM is written by big pharma and is used as a tool to promote their psychotropic meds I have a real problem with 'labels'. If it's just a way for your pdoc/therp to get reimbursed by your insurance co. because they have to put a code in the box, then it's just a way to get paid. But if it's used as a way to define yourself, i.e. I am bipolar, etc. then I see that as a problem- especially because these labels were created for one thing- financial gain and not with your best interest at heart. My last shrink felt the same way as I do on this subject, and I suspect a lot more shrinks out there concur. Sorry if I came out too strongly on this, obviously labels have harmed me on several occasions.
take care, judy
