It would be refreshing to read a diagnosis that wasn't a damnation.

I remember when a psychiatrist using the DSM3 said i wasn't schitzoprenic, Mind was asking for anyone who had been diagnosed schitzo using it to contact them, i never heard if anyone came forward

Now the new broom is using the ICD i can't remember what no, residual schitzoprenia

Wonder what the DSM5 would make of me, the DSM is American the ICD is international classification of disease

Somehow if i was rdediagnosed using say the DSm i doubt the benefit people would understand such nuances, i doubt benefit drs would understand, none of them are up to date with the skirmishes in the psychiatric wars
