Responsibility and Disorders
    #1728312 - 07/18/03 07:11 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I love how our society gives some sort of flaw a medical sounding name which abdicates any sort of responsibility. An ex-girlfriend of mine was "diagnosed" with A.D.D. She had a serious alcohol problem and was failing college. Naturally it was not because she was out all night and tired or missing classes, but because she had A.D.D.

Remember folks, it is not my fault that I am a sardonic and cynical know-it-all as I have been diagnosed with M.A.D. (Messianic Arrogance Disorder). So don't blame me, blame my condition.

Thanks for your understanding.

my favorite is SAD - social anxiety disorder (no joke). it's basically a fancy name for shyness and there is medication available to treat it.

if you're different, you're diseased.
take these pills. we can help.

oh but don't do any "bad" drugs cuz they'll mess you up :wink:
our whole fucking society is diseased.

I agree they should be considered merely as predespositions towards certain behaviors. (btw, does A.D.D even give one a predisposition towards alcholism? Sounds like plain b.s. to me. :rolleyes: )

Those names should'nt even insinuate that a person has lost connection with his or her will. It leads to a grey area where EVERYTHING becomes an excuse. You should only say a person has lost his/her will when they've disconected from reality and are a not percieving the variables correctly.

Eli Lilly is actually coming under fire because of its push towards ADD and ADHD diagnosis in adults. They even have a 6 question adult screener:

Our society has fallen into the deception that a prescription can cure anything. If people would simply take time to listen to their bodies and reevaluate their lives then they wouldnt have to medicate their personality away.

ADD is a scheme to turn smarter than average kids into speed junkies.

my opinion anyway...

Its funny cuz one time I was diagnosed as 'depressed' and given a prescription... after about a month, I quit taking that shit becuz I didnt like its effects. When the doctor called to ask me how my medication was working, I just told him that the drugs I can get are better... he seemed genuinely insulted. still gives me a chuckle

What's the medication, Ectasy? I'm usually not one to talk to people I don't know, always been really shy, but not so much anymore.. but when I was on X, I could say anything to fucking anyone! I need to be diagnosed with SAD, free fucking X (which, I hear, is suspossed to be a good medication for Post Tramautic Stress Disorder).
Peace.
