'Nice' use of 'quotes' to show how 'silly' mental illness 'is.'

What's the new name for the mental illness previously known as 'trolling'?

Well, I've been expecting the pendulum to swing back the other direction...while it is true that the latest emphasis on treating clinical depression etc. has saved a lot of lives and given quality of life to countless more-I am sure that all of us know people who think that everything emotional can be fixed by a pill. T'ain't so, even for those of us with a biological basis for our mood disorders.

Anyone else seen the TV ads about ADULT Attention Deficit Disorder? Poor woman they show is nearly at the 'hearing voices' stage.

Don't knock straterra. Turns out it is also a pretty good antidepressant for bipolar disorder-trust me.

Strattera is a third- or fourth-generation drug developed from the tricyclic norpramine. Works better, fewer side effects: a good drug, IMO.

"Malignant self-love" sounds like sociopathy or, alternatively, auto-erotic asphyxiation.
