It's Official....We're all CRAZY! Internet Addiction to be classified as Mental Illness
Digital Age overload: ‘Internet addiction’ to be classified as mental illness

The international mental health encyclopedia known as the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’ (DSM-IV) will include Internet-use disorder as a condition “recommended for further study” in its forthcoming May 2013 edition.

One step closer to mental illness...

The listing is another step towards classifying Internet addiction as a mental illness: The DSM-IV’s new inclusion demonstrates that there are risks posed by overusing technology and that more research is required, which could lead to formal diagnoses of the disorder in the future.

Psychologists are pushing to broaden the diagnoses of Internet-use disorder to include more than just gaming addictions, which could expand the age group of those affected by the illness.

''With kids, gaming is an obvious issue. But overall, technology use could be a potential problem,'' Director of the Brain and Psychological Sciences Research Centre Mike Kyrios told the Sydney Morning Herald.

A few days. They have to do some clinical trials to ensure it's safe and effective. It won't be cheap, tho.

And mentally ill aren't supposed to have guns. Hmmm???

That's how they'll disarm us. We'll be declared mentally ill and our rights will be stripped away. If we protest we'll end up in a state hospital.

They are clearly narcissists since they can't admit to their own deranged mental illness.

No need for that actually.

If you have ever took prescribed drug for anxiety, depression, etc. you can easily be tagged as "mentally unstable" and be denied the right.

Now, can you point me many that didn't get such prescription, specially in big cities?

I've never had a prescription like that. My last prescription was 20 years ago for antibiotics when I half cut my finger off.

The trick is to stay the hell away from the doctor. They'll get you in there, give you some meds, and before you know you need some more. Then your personality gets all out of whack due to side effects and BAM! They're giving you psychotropic drugs.
