I was gemused, but not particularly surprised, to read this article in Natural News which states that virtually every emotion we now have is classified by psychiatrists as a mental disorder.
"The industry of modern psychiatry has officially gone insane. Virtually every emotion experienced by a human being -- sadness, grief, anxiety, frustration, impatience, excitement -- is now being classified as a "mental disorder" demanding chemical treatment (with prescription medications, of course).The article goes on to quote Allen Frances who chaired the DSM-IV that was released in 1994. He now admits it was a huge mistake that has resulted in the mass over diagnosis of people who are actually quite normal. The DSM-IV:
The new, upcoming DSM-5 "psychiatry bible," expected to be released in a few months, has transformed itself from a medical reference manual to a testament to the insanity of the industry itself.
"Mental disorders" named in the DSM-5 include "General Anxiety Disorder" or GAD for short. GAD can be diagnosed in a person who feels a little anxious doing something like, say, talking to a psychiatrist. Thus, the mere act of a psychiatrist engaging in the possibility of making a diagnoses causes the "symptoms" of that diagnoses to magically appear."
"...inadvertently contributed to three false epidemics -- attention deficit disorder, autism and childhood bipolar disorder,"Quite so!
How convenient for Nanny, and those companies contracted by her to produce little pills, that every emotion that we now have should be treated with a tablet.
Far better that we are drugged into a state of passive lethargy, rather than be driven by the creative and rebellious forces that lead to great works of art, scientific discovery and political/social revolution!
Van Gogh would have been drugged by Nanny into a state of non creativity.
Aldous Huxley foresaw such a society (its s people drugged by Soma) in"Brave New World".
In order to function and live life to the full as humans we have to experience emotions and moods, no matter how painful some of them are.
