A quote from a UK government report on a specific sad case in psychiatry from ECT Statistics:
“There was evidence that the diagnostic process was based on inaccurate and unsubstantiated information and assumptions that lacked corrobative evidence from a careful analysis of previous case records and/or information from informants.”
This statement pretty much describes to a 'T' my experience with psychiatry. One's diagnosis is whatever the shrink wants it to be. One is screwed if he doesn't share the shrink's impeccable middle class sensibilities and upright moral judgment. Objective, empirical evidence be damned.
