Happiness a mental illness

by Angela Brooks

Happiness is a Psychiatric Disorder

 


Don't you want to have this disorder?
Why not! People talk
about and dream about being happy all the time. Wonder
if they know how to be happy? Do you?

Some people are just born happier than others and are believers
that the glass is always half full and never empty.

People are bubbly and happy attract people to them because a
smile is inviting verse a frowned face.

Happiness is not a life without problems, but rather the strength
to overcome the problems that come our way. There is no such
thing as a problem-free life; difficulties are unavoidable. But how
we experience and react to our problems depends on us. We are
each responsible for our own happiness or unhappiness.Our vitality
the amount of energy or "life-force" we have – is in fact the single
most important factor in determining whether or not we are happy.

Happiness meets all reasonable criteria for a psychiatric disorder.
It is abnormal, consists of a cluster of symptoms, there is at least
some evidence that is reflects the abnormal functioning of the
central nervous system, and it is associated with various
cognitive abnormalities in particular a lack of contact with
reality. 

This would place it on Axis I of the American Psychiatric
Association's "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual". With this
prospect in mind, I humbly suggest the following:

  • Major affective disorder, pleasant type
    • Once the debilitating consequences of happiness become
      widely recognized, it is likely that psychiatrists, social workers,
      ando ther mental heath professionals will begin to devise
      treatments for the condition. We can expect the emergence
      of happiness clinics, and anti-happiness medications in the
      not too distant future.

Happiness is something that we all can have – it is a choice we
make – it is not in a pill or a bottle. It is in the mindset you choose.

Happiness is yours for the taking. I hope you will take the time to
develop your life in such a way as to be able to experience all of
the happiness you can handle!

Great work – thanks! We certainly can shape our own attitudes, if we apply ourselves and keep at it – we’ll worth it in the end.
