There's a common treatment for a range of "psychological disorders" so prevalent in today's society. Ah yes, it is of course a healthy dosage of MAN THE FUCK UP.

Agoraphobia? I don't give a shit if the thought of going out gives you a panic attack, suck it up and go out anyway.

Depression? Yeah, there's something wrong with your brain cos you ain't enjoying life. Never mind the fact that objectively your life is shitty, or maybe you've just recently lost a loved one. I think there'd be something wrong with your brain if you didn't feel depressed in certain circumstances.

Generalized anxiety/being a pussy? Yeah I'm not surprised you have generalized anxiety being raised in this mollycoddly society. You must feel like such a vulnerable, fragile, sensitive person. A strong dosage of man up would clear this right up. You didn't see soldiers in the war running for treatment for anxiety, and they were in a fucking warzone for gods sake, not caccooned in a house.

People these days, if they feel bad in any way, they run to the doctors. Feeling bad, having problems, being stressed... it's a part of life. It doesn't mean there's something wrong with you medically. These are all just labels. People think they need extensive treatment for problems so that they feel 100% good before they do something. As a culture we are obsessed with happiness, and when we don't have it we think there's something seriously wrong, something that requires urgent medical attention. You haven't got a disorder, you're just a human being with a human life, quit complaining and just ride through it.

Just because you're not in a good mood doesn't mean you're doing something wrong or there is something wrong. Positive emotions and experiences are just a small percentage of what the brain is designed to offer you.

Yes you did; it's called PTSD. Killing people and watching them die gets to you after a while.

Just because you're not in a good mood doesn't mean you're doing something wrong or there is something wrong. Positive emotions and experiences are just a small percentage of what the brain is designed to offer you.

That's not true for everyone you realize that people with these disorders have something wrong with their brain, right?
That means they don't think like you. They can't control their feelings of anxiety or depression like an ordinary person. That's what it means to have a disorder.

Are you stupid or do you just completely lack empathy for other people? Do you know what it means to go through a traumatic experience (which isn't uncommon)? Do you know what it means to have a mental disorder?

I kind of agree with you. Some disorders are retarded. But I don't think any of the ones you listed are.

Not that many disorders... more lifestyle problems. We use a lot of our time inside in front of the TV/computer and many of us never work out. We eat unhealty stuff...

Those are disorders of people who abide social norms. Why would you fear humans if you realize they cannot harm you? Why would you be afraid of something so meaningless? Social norms.

...Actually you kinda do. PTSD is pretty common among people who actually come under fire during their tour of duty as far as I know. I guess you have less people just shutting down from shell shock in the middle of a fire fight, but still.

Going out into the world doesn't stop you from having agoraphobia just like any other fear.

Depression? Yeah, there's something wrong with your brain cos you ain't enjoying life. Never mind the fact that objectively your life is shitty, or maybe you've just recently lost a loved one. I think there'd be something wrong with your brain if you didn't feel depressed in certain circumstances.

Clinical depression isn't the same thing as feeling sad when your life is shitty. People with clinical depression feel sad regardless of what their life circumstances are. That's one of the conditions required for a diagnosis, that the depression isn't just a result of simply experiencing bad things.

Generalized anxiety/being a pussy? Yeah I'm not surprised you have generalized anxiety being raised in this mollycoddly society. You must feel like such a vulnerable, fragile, sensitive person. A strong dosage of man up would clear this right up.

There's a difference between being anxious and having an anxiety disorder. When you have anxiety disorder, you experience anxiety and panic attacks for irrational reasons. It's not a thought process brought on by being brought up to fear things. Those are just fears. Me and my sister were raised in almost identical environments, yet she has serious anxiety while the only thing I get anxious about is shots.

You didn't see soldiers in the war running for treatment for anxiety, and they were in a fucking warzone for gods sake, not caccooned in a house.

Uh, what? PTSD is a major problem in the military. It's one of the main arguments of anti-war advocates.

People these days, if they feel bad in any way, they run to the doctors. Feeling bad, having problems, being stressed... it's a part of life. It doesn't mean there's something wrong with you medically. These are all just labels. People think they need extensive treatment for problems so that they feel 100% good before they do something. As a culture we are obsessed with happiness, and when we don't have it we think there's something seriously wrong, something that requires urgent medical attention. You haven't got a disorder, you're just a human being with a human life, quit complaining and just ride through it.

You can run to the doctor for whatever you want, but one of the conditions for almost all mental disorders is that the issues aren't stemming from life circumstances. So if you go to complain because you're depressed over a lost loved one or whatever it may be, they won't diagnose you.

Mental disorders are as difficult to treat as physical ones. If telling people to get better worked there'd be no problem in either circumstance. OP is obviously a rich kid who's got it all figured out.

I agree with you. I find that most of these people with disorders are just fucking bitch ass ni**as who need to nut up and stop being such a little baby. Sure, there's some people out there who actually have that shit, but in reality, the majority do not.

Who the fuck do you think you are? You know shit when it comes to psychological disorders. Mental depression and anxiety are not emotions and often require professional help in order to overcome them. Maybe you haven't dealt with these conditions before in your life, but its a hell of a lot more than being "sad". The chemicals in the brain are actually impairing the body's functionality. It frequently becomes so imbalanced and coupled with high-stress or emotionally damaging events that it may result in the person committing suicide. I don't care how you view this, but when someone is pushed beyond their natural instinct and the body accepts death above suffering, it's not just a matter of "manning up".

Not all of these are based on the attitude of the person, much like depression is.
Most cases of depression are just the person being oblivious on how to solve their dilemma.
These other disorders are sometimes caused by previous traumatic events though, and can't be solved easily.
