    It can be degenerative, depending on how seriously each person takes the meaning behind the words used.

    We'll see, I guess.

    "I'm OCD."

    "I'm an alcoholic."

    "I'm so poor."

    Thoughts on this? Is this a generational thing? What's the deal? Too much webmd?
    The truth is always true, until it isn't.

    I dunno what it says about me, the internet, or doctors, but I've actually been able to diagnose things wrong with me [medically] before I see my physician. They merely confirm it via lab tests, & are able to prescribe treatment..
