I understand the skepticism of someone saying they have a mental disorder on the internet, but why the rash and spiteful comments?I'm guessing people who say they have a mental disorder say it to look cool or something.
There is nothing cool about schizophrenia, depression, self harm, anorexia, or any other mental illness (outside of synesthesia perhaps). These conditions aren't something that enhances ones life or helps them to cope, they are serious ailments that add tons of stress and burden upon the people that suffer from them. Calling them "cool" or "hip" is nothing to be proud of or worthy of praise, it's something that is disgusting and the person doing so should be ashamed.
I have no problem with people making jokes about these ailments however, humour is humour.
