The DSM-IV is not a scientific tool. It is a tool for getting insurance companies to pay for care. That's not my opinion, a psychiatrist told me this.
Insurance companies need to be able to call what a person has "something" soo that they're not paying for healthy people --as they must be if they don't have a disease with a name-- to fart around with hpsychiatrists.
I define schizophrenics as people who cannot make themselves buck up and swallow the intolerable conditions of this world.
Then again, there are cases that are straight up organic.
