Message Subject Psychiatry goes insane! Every human emotion now classified as a mental disorder in new psychiatric manual DSM-5

I was beginning to come to the same conclusion. A few years ago, I was given Prozac for general anxiety and OCD, and it did virtually nothing for the problem, but instead gave me lots of new problems. Which included zero sex drive, feeling like a zombie, emotionally dead and really tired. I was 18 so I'm glad I was old enough to start researching and stop the medication after a short period. CBT got rid of my OCD much quicker. Sadly the whole of psychiatry is premised on the idea that there is some deficiency in the brain. The medication has absolute no evidence for its success, in fact drugs which work in opposite ways to SSRIs have been shown to have similar results. While I'm sure there are some disorders which may need medication, I think that a lot of 'mental illness' can be cured by changing our thinking about stuff, and that is a good thing.
