Real Brain Problems

This compilation of brain scans of patients diagnosed with various psychological problems are compared with those who do not have the symptoms of such disorders. These scans show that the patient, in fact, have abnormal brain activity and therefore perceive reality different than a person with healthy brain development and no traumatic experiences.

Real disorders yes, but far, far over diagnosed.

The problem isn't that people think these problems aren't real.   
The problem is that people say they have these problems, when they don't.

So, i'm just going to point out that human brains can look really different at different times of the day, even if its the same person, so taking a scan of someone with ADHD and someone without and saying "Look, the colors are different" is an incredibly terrible way of providing evidence that it exists. Now, all these diseases exist, and idk if they are over diagnosed or not, so don't say that i'm saying they don't exist. But 4 sets of brain scans? That proves jack 						*******					 						****					. That's just awful science. Give me a hundred brain scans, or hell even 20, and then we are talking.

So this is oddly appropriate because I'm sitting in a Biological Psychology lecture at the university of Minnesota right now, and we just happen to be going over the brain and it's structures(beginning of the semester and all.

And I have to say I really don't like the evidence put forth by this comp. while I'm not here trying to say that mental illnesses are not real, I don't feel like these pictures offer any actual proof.

The 'colorful' brain scans are actually showing areas of increased metabolic activity. Use of glucose, oxygen, or increased blood flow. Obviously this is different for any two people at a given time and varies within a single person based on time of day and activity that they are doing.

The PTSD scan is, at my best guess, a CAT scan. It's showing the difference in structure between the two brains and the main difference I can pick out seems to be the size of the ventricles at the center of the brain. I actually recently learned that these areas of the brain hold cerebrospinal fluid, and that they are interconnected to form one expansive reservoir of fluid held within the brain and spine. You might see this difference in size between any two people of different size, just like you might find that two differently sized people have different sized hands.

I can sympathize with anybody living with mental illness and I hope you are able to find help with or peace from your struggle, however, if someone is giving you a hard time I would not suggest using this image to try and change their mind. Think about the image you want to show of yourself and others that might be living with the same illness. I don't think you want to come off as the type of person that believes anything on the internet. Instead, do some of your own research. These diagnoses are still around today because there is good science behind them, find out what that is for yourself so that when someone does put you down about your illness, you can show them the science.

My point exactly.

I see, ADHD is caused by your brain lacking some fuzziness and tentacles. That would make it a bit hard to concentrate.

It is definitely because I'm not entirely sure how to read brain scans... but can someone explain the difference between the PTSD brain and the Normal one?   
   
I mean I know PTSD exists, I've seen people who've had to deal with it, but to me the brain there looks like it is in between swipes... or whatever they do that makes it move

That PTSD one... **** anyone who ******* says those exact ******* words, You NEVER ******* say that to anyone who had a traumatic experience, it is *********** disrespectful.

I've developed a mild form of PTSD after hurricane Katrina happened...We lost our ******* house and had to live in a hotel room for a month or so before we got a FEMA trailer, and even then we had to get two of them. I lost all my ******* **** with this hurricane, and I nearly got killed by a ******* stop sign that somehow came loose...Since then whenever it gets really ******* bad outside (even if it's a category 1 storm), I just get ******* skittish and start freaking right the **** out.

I used to take medication for about 10 years for ADHD, and now that I'm in college nothing makes me more angry than people going " Oh i can't focus i have ADD hurr durr give me adderall. " The ADHD drugs are so badly abused it's out of control. Now this medication that people actually need has become a controlled substance, making it more difficult for them to get. gif unrelated

No one ever said they weren't real problems. We just keep politely pointing out that it's unlikely that 80% of the spoiled white kids on the planet have these disorders and then briefly comment on their sexual orientation while implying that most are just doing it for attention.

ADHD is the only one I have an issue with here. All of the others I believe 100% are real issues.

Now, that being said. I do not completely doubt that ADHD exists....I believe it is BEYOND over diagnosed and I believe that well over the majority of people who are diagnosed need to grow up and stop acting out. I think parents and teachers use this as an excuse to not discipline the kids.

Unless of course they get a brain scan like the one above to actually prove they have a disorder. Until then, sit down, shut up, and do your work.

Eh, I believe these issues exist, sure. But I absolutely refuse to believe every second person has at least two of them. Really, grow the **** up.

Don't blame me for not giving sympathy to people with disorders, blame the people who get a bit sad one day and then rant on Facebook or Tumblr "I'm so depressed, life sucks, I want to die"

The brain is literally the nerve center of your entire life. its called emotions and feelings.

Every single thing you feel is gonna show differently on a scan.
Music sex, hunger everything.

Your inability to cope with feelings is not a illness or medical condition, its life so push on or pack-in.
