Okay, tell me please - why, if you like to clean, are you labeled as having OCD? Twenty years ago SAHMs who kept a tidy abode were not asked if they needed anxiety pills. But these days you have some type of disorder if you show any "strange" personality trait. As far as I can tell, I should be on a multitude of perscription meds. I bounce my legs a lot, so I must have Restless Leg Syndrome (or a newborn). I like to keep things clean, so I must have OCD (or two kids, a husband, five birds, and a dog to pick up after), I have many interests, therefore I MUST have ADHD (or simply a multitude of interests), I am concerned for my children's health and well-being, Bitch you have anxiety issues (or just trying to stay on top of things)... Yeah. Oh, also, I am paranoid (because I feel like the media is trying to diagnose my kid on some kind of autism spectrum with every new medical update).
So what do you want from us, Society? Just a pack of people on pills with no creative thoughts, no free thinking at all? Don't misunderstand me, I KNOW there are folks out there with honest-to-goodness medical issues that require the use of very helpful solutions in pill form. I applaud people for being honest and brave enough to seek help.
But man, all of these LABELS. My children are going to grow up in a society where they will constantly be evaluated for something wrong and that scares the hell out of me.
It bothers me, what can I say. I question a lot of things, so I must be a blemish on the face of America.
I'm sure there is a medical term for it and a pill I can pop for it.
