      Social anxiety disorder isn't due to the "very existence" of society ---
      it's panic attacks which occur when one *interacts* with others in certain
      social situations. Essentially, it's social phobia.

      <<Have you ever wondered that most of this new-aged deseases are made by

      Actually, most of the "new-aged deseases [sic]" are just reclassifications
      of conditions which have existed for quite some time. Social phobia (which
      is very close to some forms of agoraphobia) is hardly a new disorder --- it
      just has the new name of "social anxiety disorder."

      <<so they can sell their products that they invented by "accident"!>>

      The drugs are hardly invented by accident. To develop a substance capable
      of alleviating serious organic disturbances in the brain reliably and
      safely takes a meticulous process of research and testing. A chemist
      doesn't accidentally spill Vial A into Beaker B and suddenly have a new
      drug. (Despite how it seems in the movie "Brain Candy." :-)

      <<And now they are stock with the spendager and need to make money so they

      A few years back TPTB reclassified "manic depression" as "bipolar
      disorder," but it doesn't mean that bipolar disorder is a new disease.
      It's not like pharmaceutical companies are just making this stuff up, as
      you seem to be alleging.

      To say so shows a gross misunderstanding of mental disorders and the
      classifications thereof.

      [Have I mentioned yet that I used to work in a mental hospital?]

      <<I thought it was funny and wanted to share with you ;)>>

      I thought it was based on faulty assumptions and misunderstanding, and
      wanted to set the record straight.

        One more error based on faculty assumptions and misunderstandings
        Our tax dollars do fund roadways in CA. Do you think that the
        state gov't can fund the reconstruction of the roadways after
        earthquakes? I know not!

        An assumption made w/o any supporting evidence (i.e." quote," 'sorry Yana,
        fact, evidence, etc), isn't worth stating. Everybody operates under the
        assumption that they're right.

        Yana, please read over your messages before you send them.

          Why reclassify?! They already have the medication for them,
          and if they make new ones, they should just replace the old,
          why create new name for the same desease and still keep the
          old name?!!! TO BE ABLE TO SELL THEIR DRUGS, MY DEAR MAGAHN!

          By accident, i mean they start working for example on a cure for
          cancer, suddenly they come-up with something that make old men
          horney so they say ooooops, what do we do with this?!, O.K.,
          here viagra for men :))) that is what i mean by accident.
          Before viagra came to market, did they even say they were working
          on something like that?, NO, all the time we here they are working
          very hard to find a cure for adis and cancer and other diseases,
          but suddenly they come-up with 50 different collor pills for
          manic depression and believe me you i see people that take those
          pills, very sad...

          That is what i am trying to tell you, why they come-up with new names?
          what should a person with manic depression think, he/she is
          bipolar disorder person and take orange pill or manic depression and
          take the prozac?! all this is playing with people's minds my dear.

          I wasn't just talking about mental disorders, i was saying it
          accross the boarder, all over about the pharmasodical companies.

          >[Have I mentioned yet that I used to work in a mental hospital?]

          So, does that make you an expert in knowing whether or not
          pharmasodical companies are using our goverment founds on
          wrong researchs? should one say my father was a brain surgen so
          lay down i am qualified to do a brain surgery on you?!!!!

          now you mentioned you used to work in a mental hospital,
          what do you think about human condition in those places?


          >I thought it was based on faulty assumptions and misunderstanding, and

          Well, it was my knowledge that I have found via research, and
          you very well know in lot of cases is true only you like to
          attack because you haven chosen to and i am not going to try
          to change your mind. what i have said must have realy hit the
          botton to make you jump on every word i write!

          H'm^, how little it takes to make you sometimes happy and
          sometimes very angry. but my analysis show that after
          kirby and roshto and charles came to your aid, you became
          more confident and try not to show your anger,(which is good),
          (but sometimes), you should read few times something before you
          become defensive of the third party.
