Did I fool you? This isn't a real disorder (at least not yet!), but an article from (who else?) the Onion. I honestly don't know if it's funny or scary. You decide.

 

Best bit:

 

"I must admit, it's been a struggle," Mary Boudreaux said. "What can I say to him when he says something like that, something that makes no sense? Or when he runs through the house yelling while I'm trying to balance the checkbook? You can't just say, 'Please, Cameron, don't have a disorder for just a few minutes so I can concentrate.'"

Been on SSRIs since 1998:

1998-2005: Paxil in varying doses

2005-present: Lexapro.

2006-early '08: Effexor AND Lexapro! Good thing I got off the Effexor rather quickly (within a year).

 

**PSYCHIATRY: TAKE YOUR CHEMICAL IMBALANCE AND CHOKE ON IT!

APA=FUBAR

FDA=SNAFU

NIMH=LMFAO

How about putting your checkbook down for a few minutes, and paying some obviously needed attention to your son.

 

Definitely not funny!

Ummm...Summer? You know this is a FAKE news article, right? It's from The Onion, which is a satire newspaper. All the news stories are 100% made up! Take a look at the website. It's like Mad Magazine.

 

Wow, it really says something when a story like this is actually believable. That's how far gone this society is...

The Onion -- truly fair and unbalanced reporting!

 

Love the article, thanks, cine!

Okay... now I really feel stupid! But, the sad fact is that it IS believable. :(
