Is An Inherited Hypersensitive Temperament An Illness?

Is an epigenetically inherited hypersensitive affective temperament an illness?

Example,

If I was born with an subterranean anxiety, would that subterranean anxiety be considered an illness?

I feel and think your asking a very important question.


Biologically, the early years of development are the critical years of implicit development.



Imagine our BrainMind was a hard boiled egg, and...

1) the egg yoke represents the lower limbic system.

2) the egg white represents the upper limbic system.

3) the egg shell represents the cortex.



The feelings occurring during the early years of consciousness, we do not cognitively remember, are implicit.

Early conscious feelings originating from the lower limbic system (hard boiled egg yoke) and the upper limbic system (hard boiled egg white) are implicit.

Implicit anxieties are anxious feelings best observed before the cortex (egg shell) matures.

Re: Is An Inherited Hypersensitive Temperament An Illness?

In my view, if you are born so hypersensitive
that even under unremarkable circumstances
(no major catastrophes, abuse, or neglect)
the hypersensitivity causes great distress
or interferes with development,
it is a problem.

(Whether or not you call it an "illness" depends on your definition of "illness". How do you define "illness", mild?)

Re: Is An Inherited Hypersensitive Temperament An Illness?

its not currently classified as an illness

but its theorized by many to be a vulnerability to several mental illnesses

Not sure of the definition of illness in this context?

Feeling bad verses feeling good?

I was hoping to get a better understanding of the definition of illness, in this thread discussion?

I have a better understanding of a hypersensitive temperament, but when a hypersensitive temperament becomes "a problem", (or not) depends on both the severity of the inherited hypersensitive temperament and individual circumstances.

Severity of the hypersensitive temperament, may be a factor, among multiple factors, in a neurodevelopmental disorder.

The illness model confuses me when discussing neurodevelopment.

Re: Is An Inherited Hypersensitive Temperament An Illness?

IMHO:

If the individual circumstances are unremarkable
(no catastrophes, abuse or neglect occurs)
but you are so hypersensitive that it causes an impairment,
you have an illness or a developmental delay.

If you undergo catastrophes, abuse or neglect
(or any combination of those)
but you were not hypersensitive prior to that trauma,
you may develop an illness such as PTSD.

If both being born with hypersensitive temperament
and terrible stress during childhood takes place,
then you never had a chance of not having an illness
probably more than one diagnosis.


In other words, even with a low-key, low stress childhood
a child can be born with a hypersensitive temperament
that may be diagnosed as a mental illness.

I can attest to the heavy weight of carrying it.
