VERY interesting read. I warn you, though, it’s a bit lengthy. So here’s what I took away from it: A good amount of mental illnesses are not universal. And if it’s not universal can it really be a real illness or is it all subconscious (or conscious I suppose depending on the person) They are formed by social interpretations, characterizations, and treatments. Which have a tendency to be more of a hindrance than a help. I.E. How others treat that individual and how long the symptoms last. When they started to be defined is when they become more uniformed. And of course drug companies are all over this cash cow ready to jump to prescribe people…. But seriously, read it.

About D.Dinius

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)
