    Much to my expectation most people on the forum have, or find it easy to identify themselves with, different mental conditions.

    Could there be a self-fulfilling prophecy in this? Meaning that when you think you suffer from something you actually are more likely to get it? It's an established fact that the mind has huge power over how the body works (the placebo effect for instance). Could just brining down the number of diagnoses in society actually bring down the number of mental disorders?

    You're right, I was making an assumption and there may definitely be people with 47 chromosomes around here. But realistically, I dare say that there aren't any.

    Every thought within the realm of physical possibility is a self-fulfilling prophecy. So yea, definitely.

    No, just the people on the forum who answered the question 'What mental condition are you?' Surely that would be much to anyone's expectation.

    Default OE

    OE or over-excitable.

    OEs have a high response to stimulae of all kinds.

    My friends say my life is never boring as I invest the most mundane event with excitement and significance.

    It is very nice though to meet another OE as we flow together like water.

    The downside is I don't want to spend too much time with the normally excited. And the normally excited find it hard to see what I am excited about.

    Probably the worst is when I suppress my excitement to please my parents, authority figures or peers. It's like I am strangling myself. But sadly I have learnt to suppress my excitement in the interests of survival.

    So here I am - my excitement survives - a fragile reed trembling in the current.

    Not the Messiah, just a naughty boy

    There are positive mental conditions and negative mental conditions. And it is interesting that the negative mental conditions are described in psychiatric terms. But there does not seem to be a corresponding set of mental conditions described in positive terms.

    It reminds me of advertising where they mention what is wrong with you and in the next breath tell you what to buy in order to fix it.

    In this case they describe your mental condition pejoratively then prescribe a therapy, quite often drugs.

    What suckers we are for the advertisers and pharmaceutical companies who tell us we are bad and how to be good. And we all want to be good, don't we?

    Thomas Szasz in his books, "The Myth of Mental Illness", and, "The Manufacture of Madness", saw through this.

    But Thomas is just a naughty boy.
