the first rule of fight club is you must be following me. i will be checking. the second rule is reblogs only, likes dont count, one reblog per person

sometimes i’m like “no i don’t ever have problems taking things too literally, what are you talking about”

but today i got super frustrated at folks in partner’s family today going out of their way to “find a movie to fall asleep too”, because omg it’s too bright to be outside and i am feeling sick to my stomach and let’s just go sleep, why do you all feel so obligated to have something to do together 24/7 that you can’t just  say you’re taking a nap

then it was explained to me that that was a joke

solipsistful:

If you wanna self-diagnose you are a sick bastard who needs help because you’re a mockery to the real mentally ill.”

i need a label for this type of thinking, cause whoa that’s a lot of layers of ableism there. something along the lines of “no you can’t self-diagnose as…

When you get a doctorate in mental health and aren’t a stupid little shit, then you have every sane person’s permission to fucking diagnose yourself. And no one diagnoses as sane, technically, as it is like being innocent until proven guilty. You’re sane until proven insane. And you’re insanely stupid

case in point o:

i love all the responses like this, cause it’s like, wtf, y’all realize that according to good medical guidelines, doctors aren’t meant to self-diagnose either? same stated issues with “not being objective enough” and all that. what does a doctorate have to do with anything, in that case?

(also technically, you don’t need either a PsyD or a PhD to diagnose. clinical social workers can diagnose too, and they just have MAs. so yeah.)

Hahah man we forgot how weird the mental hospital episodes of House MD are. like simultaneous moments of weirdo ableism on the part of the show writers and them calling out the structural ableism in psychiatry

new silly reason for me to doubt my being autistic: “but I wasn’t bullied???”

This is an idea I keep having lately. I even thought about, like, writing an essay or something about it but I keep worrying that I’ll word stuff wrongly. But, like:

From the way I see things, studies demonstrating DID as a valid and real diagnostic category aren’t the same as studies demonstrating that multiplicity is a valid and real subjective experience. The former can confidently distinguish between populations with and without DID, and even demonstrate physiological differences between ego-states, but they do not prove that there are different people in a multiple system, or even that the system isn’t ~just making up~ certain parts of their experiences, like headspaces and histories.

After all, even in DID research, the term “personality” is loaded — some use it to mean individual alters, while some attest that nobody really has multiple personalities; it’s a single personality dissociating. If the research proved multiple personhood, that wouldn’t be as big of a thing.

I mean, it’s a philosophical question, “what is a person” and all that. Cognitive neuroscience can be convincing, but isn’t the end-all be-all: It just shows different areas of the brain activating differently, and if some researchers look at it and say “multiplicity” and others say that’s the power of that single person dissociating, that’s just a matter of interpretation. Besides, I don’t think there’s even any research that’s been done on certain subjective aspects of multiplicity, like why some of us remember pasts that never happened, or what is the deal with headspaces.

Does that even make sense?
