I hate the term "mentally ill"
Aug 13, 2018 - 3:11 PM - by PoppnNSailinMan
I saw daveddd's thread on the definition of mental illness being invalidating for him, and I was all set to add my own rant about how much I hate the term "mentally ill" but saw that the thrust of his thread was something different, so didn't want to derail it.

So I thought I'd start my own rant here. I'm sure that mental health practitioners would consider ADHD and any diagnosable disorders in the DSM to be "mental illnesses" which, as daveddd rightly pointed out, are defined... [Read More]

Adhd parents: Does ADHD affect your ability to parent?
Aug 12, 2018 - 4:42 PM - by Fuzzy12

So mental illness is defined societally by impairment

I was very impaired in all areas

Now not so much. Mindfulness helped me catch the behaviors that impaired me according to the dsm
