Depression doesn’t exist

Bruce E. Levine thinks that depression is a normal, albeit painful, human reaction. Because no biological markers for depression have been discovered, scanning techniques delivers conflicting results and the serotonin hypothesis of depression can’t be proved we shouldn’t consider depression being a disease. According to his post Why I Don’t Disease Depression in the Huffington Post.

Don’t know the man but is he a left over from the seventies of the previous century? Where has he been? Following his line of reasoning all other psychiatric diseases would also be a painful reaction. PTSD? Sorry but that are the consequences when you go to war, shit happens. Schizophrenia well bad luck either. Back to the Anti psychiatry? Again questioning the existence of psychiatric diseases.

Even most somatic illnesses lack biological markers nor signs on CT scans.

An insulting post to all of them suffering from depression

Discussions such as these around over diagnosing depression in the British Medical Journal are far more informative and based on intellectual arguments

  1. Levine’s basic thesis is correct. There are severe problems with the DSM model for Depression and mental illness.

    PTSD is believed to be a reaction to remembered trauma but psychologists say there is no way memories can be stored reliably and recalled to cause PTSD.

    There is a simple explanation, Subliminal Distraction exposure.

    SD is a little known problem discovered when it caused mental breaks for office workers in the 1960′s. The cubicle was created to deal with normal features in the physiology of sight and the mental breaks stopped where they are used.

    Although this is a forty year old story almost no one in mental health services is aware of it. There are no papers or studies.

    Answer this question:
    Can you cite a case of a blind-from-birth person who has panic attacks, ICU Psychosis, or Schizophrenia?

    The fully blind can’t have SD exposure.

    If mental illness and depression are disease caused by chemical imbalances why are the bind immune?

    ” PTSD is believed to be a reaction to remembered trauma but psychologists say there is no way memories can be stored reliably and recalled to cause PTSD. ”

    Learn Pavlov’s dogs. Replace dog with person. Replace food with traumatic experience. Replace bell with other sensory cue assosiated with said traumatic experience. You have a scenario of basic PTSD. Any psychologist who hasn’t considered this had better return to university and retake psychology. That’s some major fail right there.

    And as for your dodgy blind man hypothesis, I call bullshit unless you can show see some official and scientifically accepted evidence to back up your statement that blind people are immune to mental illness.
