Mother: Bi-polar
Father: Schizophrenic
Ex Boyfriend: PARANOID schizoprhenic
Grandfather: PTSD (Post traumatic Stress Disorder)
Grandmother: Hysteria (She commited suicide about 40 years ago when Schizophrenia was only a 'womans' disease and was called 'hysteria' because it wasn't recognized as a disease, just women being Hysterical =( )
Aunt: Depression
Me: I suffer from insomnia, and a very mild Bi-polar.. meaning I don't have the EXTREMES, but I tend to either be really excited and happy, or I'm very quiet and unsure.. so I don't go into RAGES and I don't go into OMG It's the END OF THE WORLD i'm so sad...

They try and medicate me but I (puff puff) pass on that =p

Sure, but I'm not too involved with their lives. Its a shame, but thats the way it is, and it usually does not stop them from living with a sense of hope and courage.

Looks like your list stops at P. Just provide a link to common ones or something, like this: http://www.mental-health-matters.com/disorders/list_alpha.php

Perhaps you would like to go more into what you mean by "ready to accept them". It's good that you ask open ended questions, but provide more structure. Often their disability does not allow them to act normally in culture, so yes there is a sense of shunning such individuals, in various manners which depend on their condition.

The classification of them is something I find intresting The DSM-IV is basically the book over here. There are issues such as, is computer addiction a mental disorder, etc.

do the meds help you ask. They help me concentrate, but otherwise they're total crap. I only take em when i need to. Side effects include: loss of appetite, dehydration, loss of energy, and loss of any interesting qualities or social skills.

As far as I've seen 80% of people who take meds are worse on them then off them - theres only about 20% of people where the medication is effective in TREATING there symptoms, not just turning them into zombies that can always seem 'dazed' or 'ditzy' to control things we consider 'uncouth' in our society.. I LIKE DAH CRAZYS

Ok, so:
I know several people that have dyslexia, mom has a depression, my grandfather has alzheimer (and so did my great-grandmother) uhm... and I know people with learning disorders, one with narcolepsy, and then I know several sleepwalkers. As for sleepwalking, I know it can be quite a hazzle. Amongst others, three of my best friends does it from time to time. One went to her school on her bike in the middle of the night (it was autumn so it was very cold, also, the school is about 30 min away) the two others have been sleepwalking when we've had schooltrips etc. They've actually walked into other people's beds and slept there the entire night XD lol... hahaaa

This is gonna sound really cruel but, if a person can't function in society or be useful in someway then it's a burden.

Psychology and psychiatry aren't the same thing, just like meds might help a percentage of people, another might find psychoanalysis more helpful, that would depend on the kind of person and "problem".

By 2010 or so, about 50% (give or take, I can't remember the real statistic, sorry) of the world's population would suffer from deppresion. Right now, how many people are suffering from stress and by the problems it 'causes, maybe it's an exaggeration but people are already "crazy" enough without having any disorders.

with enough drugs, people can ignore any disorder (and the causes of such)
