Shrink Crazy

Some headlines step over the line. This is our Weird Headline For The Day:

Research shows that there needs to be a new psychiatry diagnostic added to their manual…fear of having a cell phone that does not work.

Somebody should tell these dimwits that there are almost 400 diagnostic labels in the current DSM, the DSM-5, already. (DSM: short for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders; AKA shrinks’ bible; AKA Field Guide to Looney Birds.) Some people even go so far as to call these diagnostic “mental disorder” tags,  cataloged in the DSM,  “diseases”.

Believe it or not, this is not satire. Technobabble, yes. Satire, no. It should be satire, really, so let’s call it “found satire”.
