Same Old Mindset

Article in today’s Independent on Sunday.

Leave aside the argument about whether this is a psychiatric or physical illness as that’s not the point for me.

The point is the comments made by some of the contributors. Basically these amount to saying that if an illness is physical then it’s real if it’s psychiatric then it isn’t. Even so far as to say psychiatric illness is trivial.

Really? Try living with severe PTSD or similar for a short time and then judge whether it’s “trivial”
