Yay another article describing social anxiety disorder as a made up illness. I really wish people who say things like that had to deal with a mental illness for just a week and see how they like it. Yes there may be a lot of antidepressant prescriptions in this country, that doesn’t mean that we suffer any less now that more people are being treated instead of suffering in silence.
If they really think “normality” is starving yourself because you’re too afraid to go into a kitchen full of people and wanting to kill yourself because you’ve spent over a decade without friends, then I don’t know what to say. They are more fucked in the head than I am.
