Nothing in the DSM or the soon to come out DSM-5 is an official mental illness.

Everything in it was voted in or voted out.
 Quoting: Fhirinne

The final commenting period on the draft fifth edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) closed as of June 15, 2012. This commenting period marked the third and final time DSM-5 draft criteria was available for feedack, and we appreciate the time and effort that went into submitting comments.

Following the previous commenting period (May-July 2011), members of the DSM-5 Task Force and Work Groups reviewed feedback submitted to this site and, where appropriate, revised their proposed diagnostic criteria and made other changes. With the completion of the DSM-5 Field Trials, Work Group members have spent the past several months examining data and findings from these important studies. Therefore, the proposed diagnostic criteria found on this site are the result of the DSM-5 Work Groups' ongoing deliberations, based on findings from scientific field studies, patient and clinician perspectives, and views from the general public. We want to stress that revisions will continue to be made, as necessary, over the next several months. [link to www.dsm5.org]
