Cut a long story short my mil has had "issues" with my teenage sil. To me her behaviour is a combination of typical teenage hormonal moods, spoilt brat syndrome ( finished school, doesn't work, can't get CL, mil says to get a job ,sil knows she just has to ask for stuff and gets it so doesn't bother working) and the fact mil never properly dealt with sil feelings and emotions after splitting up with her dad ( not DH dad) and getting pregnant and moving in with another man ( yes 3 kids 3 different dads).
Anyway apparently sil was diagnosed ( at an expensive "clinic" which gets paid per day not one fee sort of deal) with a "mood" disorder so rather than deal with real issues mil is now blaming ( and using it) as an excuse for sil behaviour.
I'm not doubting mental health issues I have suffered anxiety and mild pnd so I know they're real but I did see a quote on FB that drug companies don't make money from you being well. Thanks for letting me vent
I am seeing more and more people being diagnosed with some label then using that as an excuse for poor behaviour ( if you know it's poor behaviour then it's not the disorder ).
Please tell me I'm not the only one who is seeing this
