Are Psychiatrists,Doctors and Lawyers Inventing Mental Illnesses, Illnesses to Feed Americans More Pills?


Anyone who’s ever tried to get reimbursed by a health insurance company after seeing a psychiatrist or psychotherapist, or taking a child or teenager to one, has no doubt noticed the incomprehensible numbers that appear on the clinician’s statement, perhaps preceding some slightly less imponderable phrase.
Maybe you are a 296.22 (major depressive disorder, single episode, mild) or a 300.00 (anxiety disorder NOS–not otherwise specified). Hopefully, you are not a 301.83 (borderline personality disorder). Your kid might be a 313.81 (oppositional defiant disorder) or, more likely, a 314.01 (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type).

DSM-5: The Future of Psychiatric Diagnosis

Publication of the fifth edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) in May 2013 will mark one the most anticipated events in the mental health field. As part of the development process, the preliminary draft revisions to the current diagnostic criteria for psychiatric diagnoses are now available for public review. We thank you for your interest in DSM-5 and hope that you use this opportunity not only to learn more about the proposed changes in DSM-5, but also about its history, its impact, and its developers. Please continue to check this site for updates to criteria and for more information about the development process.

Since 1952, a tome called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, better known as the DSMhas been reducing to a few digits the psychological malady said to afflict a patient. This bible of mental health treatment, published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), provides a list and description of every mental health condition known to—or invented by—psychiatry, from histrionic personality disorder (301.50) to transvestic fetishism (302.3).
Over the decades, the manual, adapted from a guide for mental diseases developed by Army and Navy psychiatrists, has ballooned. The number of listed disorders tripled to nearly 300. A few have been discredited and dumped along the way. Most famous were battles over the inclusion of homosexuality. Successive iterations of the manual listed homosexuality as a “sociopathic personality disturbance,”  then modified that to describe a more limited “sexual orientation disturbance” among people who were “in conflict with” their attraction to people of the same sex. That was later replaced by a disorder called “ego-dystonic homosexuality,” applied to those whose homosexual arousal was a source of distress. That item was dropped in the DSM-III-R, published in 1987.more at source
This is just an example i’m adding this part:   I am no medical expert and I’m not trying to put down or make anyone that has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia‘ and the pain they are experiencing  not seem legit, but after seeing, hearing and now reading about this disease more, it almost sounds like a made up doctors, pharmaceutical makers disease (getting older people do get aches and pains, from lack of exercise, past injuries, diet with the food additives,pesticides, tap water,  not doing as much as one used to, side effects from other Rxs and there are tons of those?) all to make people feel like they need to take more drugs to feel better.  Which in turn makes more money for the above and more money for the lawyers and  health insurance companies .

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by chronic muscle pain, fatiguesleep disorders, memory problems, and tenderness at certain points on the body. The cause of fibromyalgia is not completely understood, but it has been suggested that people with fibromyalgia process pain differently from other people.

Musculoskeletal Problems Spotlight

Fibromyalgia is a common disorder affecting approximately five million people in the United States alone. It is more common in women than men, with an estimated 80% to 90% of all fibromyalgia cases occurring in women. Fibromyalgia is typically diagnosed during middle age (Source: NIAMS ).

Fibromyalgia 101

I would like to welcome you to Fibromyalgia 101, a presentation by the American Chronic Pain Association that was supported through a grant from Forest Laboratories.
In the next few minutes we’re going to look at what fibromyalgia is, the causes and how are you going to live a full life in spite of the pain.
There are two kinds of pain; there’s acute pain and chronic pain.  Chronic pain is a pain that continues for a month or more beyond the usual recovery period of an injury or an illness.  It can go on for a very long time.  The interesting thing about chronic pain is that you have good days and bad days.  It’s never consistent, the same level of pain every day and I think that has to be the most confusing part of chronic pain.

About 200 delegates from around the world attended what turned out to be a fascinating and superbly organised 3-day workshop on Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, and Trauma, held May 15-17, 2001, in Bristol, UK. The workshop was organised by Bernie Rowe, an attorney with Lyons Davidson Solicitors in Bristol. One was immediately struck by the absence of any hidden agenda. If one puts a number of articulate individuals in the same room and focuses on the world literature in terms of trauma, and more particularly whiplash injuries, and the ensuing outcome in terms of return to normality or fibromyalgia/chronic pain, one is likely to be able to reach something of a consensus. Of course, we did not. But having said that, we did have an excellent opportunity to focus on the different schools of thought and opinions in this intricate field.
I got whiplash from a car accident I was in many years ago, and my neck will get stiff from time to time, you know what I do?  Take a couple of aspirin and put a heating pad on my neck.  Seems to work  just fine.  You are more then welcome to agree or disagree with me these are just experiences and  thoughts.  Shera~

I have believed this to be the case for many years. This medicating kids allegedly for ADHD and ADD has concerned me immensely for some time.
Warlock. Yes we are in complete agreement there. I feel the same way about all the Anti-depressants they are always putting people on too. I mean look at all the side-effects that they dare to list on TV. I would rather deal with the depression.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
