Medical condition or a emotional one?
Which mental illness ?
Schizophrenia, bordline, manic depressive, or depression.
So you say both? How do you distinquish between the two?
Yes. Very carefully.
There is a problem with mental illness that is often overlooked, it is completely theoretical. The only thing we know is that people have such problems, but what causes them, their exact nature, even the symptoms are mostly guess work. I have several diagnosed mental illnesses, and was incorrectly diagnosed and medicated when I was a teenager (the most likely possible cause of my current problems actually). Luckily all mine are social (real life social that is) so they have little impact online, which turns out my new doctor said is probably the best therapy for me than anything they can prescribe. Many times symptoms overlap, and medications have rarely proven effective or at least have had major side effects which can cause just as many problems. Often the matter comes to "which problems can you live with the best." One major drawback is that they cannot be diagnosed reliably in most patients, we (the patients) feel this is "normal" and since we have no way to compare it to what "normal" actually is, medical professionals have to base everything on what we tell them, sometimes one little detail is enough to completely change the problem, but we leave that tiny detail out thinking it's "normal" ourselves. So it's roulette for the doctors, not hard fact like physical ailments.
That is what I think too. You would be surprised how many think otherwise.
