APPI.org: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition DSM-5™ 978-0-89042-554-1.

While many professionals are aghast at the changes in DSM-V, the diagnostic bible of both APAs, the new manual makes for good discussions. It may lead to fistfights. More news forthcoming as I sift through more changes than I initially expected.

Whatever else may happen as a result of the DSM-V  release during the May 2013 annual APA Convention in San Francisco with Keynote Speaker, President William Jefferson Clinton, the Healthcare Industry will expand to handle the increased number of disorders threatening to bloom in US society. In addition to this, with a second Space Mining Company (besides Google’s, 2010) opening in January 2013, Space Medicine practitioners and technicians will reach high demand by 2015.

What a way to have more jobs – by having more sick people! — For example, everyday forgetfulness linked to a packed schedule or other daily stressors can now be disagnosed as a solid disorder and that might qualify it for SSDI or SSI.

Life in America just became more interesting.
