DO NOT SELF-DIAGNOSE

Permanent Linkby mp_96 on Mon Sep 12, 2016 3:05 pm

A great topic,that is fairly common amongst anxiety disorders,is the tendency to find a solution of the doubts through concrete(notice concrete) evidence that everything is ok.From personal experience,using harsh definitions about a disorder YOU THINK you may have is actually a practice that in itself,is malignant.Even if you have a disorder like OCD,and try to find more and more reassurance through hard definitions,is only going to make you worse....simply because the use of TERMS is all about categorizing common characteristics,at least in mental health,that is not physical and it is not so concrete because of this.Medical definitions are used as a compass,a common ground for specialists to categorize individuals with a disorder,and merely used to diagnose them.My 4th psychiatrist told me ''We use the DSM mostly for official reasons,for papers it is(know the word in Greek not english),if we were to diagnose people solely based on the DSM or the ICD,we would just open it find what the individual ''has'' and in a matter of minutes we have a diagnose....no it doesnt work like that''.The mental professional and the medical professional,both KNOW the syptoms and both KNOW the tools on how to identify them,these tools are official diagnose manuals yes,but not alone.Each and every one of us is different,our conditions just are alike thus labelled the same,they acually are but are not(paradox).This can be just observed by checking the stories of people here,with the same disorder.....the topics are hugely diverse,and every one has a difference!At least one difference.Trust your mental health therapist or psychiatrist,do not self diagnose....in that moment you just assume you are in the same knowledge level as somebody who spent years and years of their lives trying to study these topics!!!As always,take care!!
