self diagnosing is so hard because everytime you’re like “maybe I am mentally ill” theres also a big part of you going “nah you’re probably just a naturally lazy/nasty/disgusting/useless person trying to find an excuse for your behavior” because of the institutionalized ableism that runs through everything
So go to the doctor and get an actual diagnosis?
Why don’t poor people just buy more money?
Remind me again what you’re supposed to do with a self-diagnosis.
There’s always a reminder on those little tests that say something close to, “This does not in any way substitute for a professional opinion.” There’s a good reason why they have those on there.
Also, it is somewhat challenging to determine mental illness because it deals mostly with behavior. That sort of thing brings in subjective elements to the answer that can change from Psy expert to Psy expert.
