So. In a surprising release some shrinks have determined that psychiatric diagnosis is pretty much bunk.

I read about 10 psych evaluations per week. A high percentage of the conclusions parrot the complaints made by the patient and no real analysis is done.
My conclusion is that good psychologists/psychiatrists are not common.

Looking at the abstract, the authors attempt to disprove an entire, international field of thought and propose a new approach in one article. I think that even Kuhn and Einstein would say that is a bit ambitious.

Well, I'm a nut case and they gave me pills. So long as I don't forget to take them, they level me out pretty good.

That's right. When you see me just off my rocker in here you should ask me, when was the last time you took your meds?

I'm not sure I've ever seen you on your rocker. These 'meds' you speak of, can I have some?

Oh it’s a fair ask.

When I’m talking to headshrinker, I lie. I lie a whole bunch.

Last Dr. Tool I was forced to see to adjust my meds was this dude that was 87 years old. He wrote a 85 page book 32 yers ago. That was his methodology. Many what a douche.

He held my prescription hostage. One month only. So I have to keep seeing his ass to get the refill.

So as we’re talking about why I am so angry and out of control he says, get this and no BS:

Jake, when you realize are becoming angry, I want you to think of the subject of your anger and what it would be like to harm him.

What? Ummmm. WHAT?

And I need to know about your dreams. Put a yellow pad by your night stand and tell yourself to wake up when you are dreaming and write down what was happening.

What a fekken hole of a-ness,

But he had me. He would not do anything but a 30 day Rx for oh 8 months. Wow why 8??? Well, that was all my insurance allowed in a fiscal year.

Hate that guy.

Inasmuch as treatment is often the same for multiple diagnosis's (the five listed in the article are schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depressive disorders, anxiety disorders and trauma-related disorders), diagnosis is not as critical as one might think. The DSM is a tool that, in theory, removes human interpretation of symptoms presented in new clients, but really, human interpretation by the doc is still a huge part of the diagnostic process. It's not like clients can sit down at a computer station, answer forty questions and then have the machine prescribe and dispense some orange pills. As mentioned above, people lie. A good doc will pick up on that.

My therapist sends me random texts. I thought this was weird at first but I just roll with it.

Looks like there's an unofficial consensus here on CPS.

Psych diagnosis is crap. Should we tell the kids?

I wonder if psychology will go the way of phrenology? It probably should, but probably won't.

Psychiatrist: Tell me, have you had any dreams lately?
Lou Costello: Yeah, the other night I dreamed I wanted a Salami sandwich.
Psychiatrist: Now, let's see. Salami is imported so that must mean you wanted to make a trip. Isn't that so?
Lou Costello: No. I wanted a Salami sandwich.
Psychiatrist: And so, what did you do about it?
Lou Costello: I got up and made myself a Salami sandwich
Psychiatrist: And so you slept peacefully after that?
Lou Costello: No.
Psychiatrist: Aha. Aha! Asymptomatic! The dream repeated itself.
Lou Costello: No, but the Salami did.
