Insanity nation- an interesting point of view
If you're not mentally ill, you're just not trying hard enough.
The shrinks have finally succeeded in slapping a label on nearly everyone, with a new government survey finding that 45 million Americans suffer from some form of mental illness, including 11 million with "serious" problems.
In all, that's 20 percent of all adults and 30 percent of the 18-25 age group.
Look, I don't need a study to know there are plenty of crazies out there... but 45 million? No way.
Shrinks have managed to turn every quirk and flaw into a disorder with drugs, twice-weekly therapy sessions, drugs, group meetings, drugs, Internet support forums and drugs.
It's the biggest scam going, with millions of Americans now caught up in an endless loop of drugs and treatments they don't need for normal, harmless conditions that don't hurt anyone.
So here's the real deal: If you've got something going on that's hurting yourself or those around you, seek help from a real doctor.
But if you think you're ill just because some shrink told you so, do yourself a favor and tell him where to stick his Diagnostic and Statistical Manual instead.
Causing the shrinks to shrink,
