I stand with Bailey. UPG is a waste of oxygen.
Okay, so at least we have some alleged diagnoses to look at here. UP is claiming PTSD and Disassociatve Personality Disorder (what used to be called Multiple Personality Disorder).
I'm not going to pick apart PTSD. It's one of those things everyone has to some degree, if they've ever experienced any kind of trauma. It impairs some people more than others, and many people never seek treatment for it because they have dealt with the issue.
DID, on the other hand, is highly disputed by professionals as to whether it is a genuine disorder, or the patient has a somewhat voluntary role in it. My theory is that it is the defense mechanism of a creative child gone horribly wrong, because it is a defense mechanism that only works for a child. It's not like it is portrayed in movies and on tv. It is somewhat voluntary on the patient's part.
UP is FUBAR, so it really doesn't matter what the actual diagnosis is in the long run. The treatment is still going to be medication.
