Disorders in modern society Aug. 10th, 2012 @ 04:08 AM Reply

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.

This is already sounding like an idiotic, republican style rant

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.

If you don't give a shit, shut the fuck up

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.

Some people literally can't help but be depressed, and you're already sounding like an asshole

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.

Well, their trained for those warzones, first of all. It's why when they come home they're still in a combat situation. Second of all, not everyone is a trained military soldier

People these days, if they feel bad in any way, they run to the doctors.

I have chronic depression, and often get infections or some form of illness, and I have never gone to a doctor

You sir, have a terrible case of generalization. You need a massive dosage of "Simmer way the fuck down and shut up"

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.

I agree

Again, I have chronic depression, and I'm a schizotype, and I quite literally never go to doctors

I had PTSD, anxiety, depression, and agoraphobia. Yeah I'm sure screaming and running when a doorbell or phone is rung is totally a normal part of life. Just like driving to class and then being too afraid to get out of the car is. There was totally nothing wrong with me when I would shake before falling asleep and then sleep with one or both eyes open and have horrible nightmares. It was just me being obsessed with happiness when I thought I should be able to do things on my own instead of leaving the safe bedroom for two minutes to put dishes away before freaking out and having a panic attack.
Fuck you.

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

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?

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.
