Hoarding: A brain disorder

I'm sure you all know that Dr. E. Fuller Torrey of the Treatment Advocacy Center loves to use the term "agnosogosia" to describe people with an inability to recognize that they are mentally ill.

    What is schizophrenia disorder

    1. They claim 'schizophrenia' is a brain disorder is not susceptible of proof, which is why brain scanning the patient hasn't trickled down into the diagnostic process. Simple. You cannot simply decree that someone has a brain disease, any more than I can simply decree E Torrey Fuller's mendacity is due to a brain disease. The brain disease hypothesis has been disconfirmed by the evidence, but people like that colon Fuller Torrey, like the vast majority of psychiatrists, don't like to acknowledge their errors, so they reinforce their shibboleths regularly to avoid anything so cumbersome and threatening to their self-esteem as admitting they were wrong (who knows, maybe this is because of a brain disease!)


I am no longer approving comments. All I ask is that you be respectful of others and refrain from using profanity.
