Are mental disorders real?

I've been seeing a therapist since I was a little girl.
I don't remember much but I do remember them teaching me how to act like other kids or something like that...
Also in kindergarten I remember not having friends and being happy playing by myself,eating by myself.

I stoped seeing my therapist 2 years ago.
I'm making money,enough to save up alot of it so I feel like I'm fine but I know I'm not.
I know there's something wrong with my brain or maybe I'm just naturally fucked up.

Now as an adult when people get to know me they think something wrong with me.

I know I'm a little weird and all that.

Brain chemistry is affected my nature (genetics) and nurture (diet, gut bacteria, how treated growing up, traumatic events, chronic stress, illnesses, etc), etc.

Of course there are real disorders. Good ccounselling cannot necessarily "cure,"but can provide coping tools.

These should not be confused with superficial resistances to socially-acceptable 'norms' however. Not all boisterous children are adhd, for example.

seriously? Of course they are. The brain is an organ, subject to physical damage, influenced by the hormones and chemicals etc it's exposed to. All of which can lead to temporary or permanent chances in how the brain functions 🤦

[@327737,Salix75] I’m genuinely interested in what you have to say but I’m not sure if that matters to you.

I believe they are. I have schizoaffective disorder.

[@1695,InvaderNice] I have had experiences with medication.it turns me into a zombie and changes everything about me from the way I look to my dreams and goals.it makes everything feel dull and colorless.

You shall be spanked. Disorder is never of the mind.
