    Quoted from Wiki:
    I don't think "personality disorder" actually exists. I think it's completely fabricated because think about it: If you ask person A about person B, and person B acts totally insane IN THE OPINION of person A, then person A will of course say of person B; "that person is CRAZY! He must have personality disorder or something."

    Person B could also say the same of person A. That's all it is, OPINION! Mental impairment is real because it affects many people in many different forms. But who the F ever came up with a concept as ridiculous as "personality dsorder?" So, (based on the above description), anyone who doesn't conform to the norm (of the given society/culture you were born into), can be labled as someone "suffering" from "personality disorder." What horse crap! Goodness gracious. Anyone could give that label to anybody if they don't act a certain way. The way society says they should act.

    I am just in shock that this is actually a real term. It is both laughable (in its arrogant stupidity) and annoying at the same time. :mad: Anyone agree?

    I believe Bipolar is a personality disorder.

    I believe bipolar used to be called manic-depressive. Manic-depressive is very destructive, I fostered a niece who was manic-depressive. Bipolar is a watered down diagnosis that is used to excuse someone who is moody and difficult to deal with. Bipolar offers an excuse for pissy assholes to get away with being...well, pissy assholes. If you've ever dealt with someone who is manic-depressive, you would know the very distinct difference.

    Manic depression was renamed Bipolar, and you sound as if people pretend to have it - they don't.

    pfft

    I had a friend that claimed he had ADD everytime he forgot to do something, like pay me the money he owes me.

    basically


    People will claim to have anything they think they can fake for sympathy.

    Like it or not, Bipolar exists. Now, ADD, or ADHD, is another thing...

    Yes, they sure do pretend to have it. Its a nice catch all "disorder" flavor of the month for acting badly and a way to get away with it.

    A lot of parents are now having their children "diagnosed" as bipolar or ADHD to excuse their children's bad behavior.... and or the desire to drug them into submission.
