Incidentally, most of their conditions and symptoms have been clinically shown to be manifestations of mental illness, and as long as they are unable to realize that, they will never get better. They take it too personally when someone even suggests that.
The article needs more comments to counter the one I've quoted above. I'm too brainfogged to write such a comment but maybe others here could contribute something useful with references to counter the 'clinically shown' nonsense.
That series was an insult to everyone with the illnesses represented in it. I have read the interviews of the people on the show, all of them feel that they were misrepresented, and their illnesses trivialized.
With the outrage from the viewers, and the cast members I am shocked that it is still running on Netflix! Shame on Netflix!
