Are you bitter? You may be mentally ill!

Posted by rnny on March 20, 2010, at 10:14:06

This is ludicrous. Some shrinks want to come up with a new diagnosis that is someone is bitter, they have a disorder.

If that is the case, alot of people in this society are going to be labeled mentally ill. By the way if you aren't aware of it, there is something called the "labeling theory". If you label someone mentally ill, disabled, etc. they begin to believe it defines them as a person and they start to see themselves in a very negative way. Their identity becomes shaped by the label instead of just associating the 'label' with their symptoms.

I am on disabilty right now for depression and want to get off of it because prior to going on it I functioned, now I am referred to as "disabled" and the stigma really hurts my self esteem.

One doctor helped me by saying a diagnosis is just a tool to describe symptoms. And a diagnosis is something that is necessary to bill insurance!
