>>11434273>Would a doctor do a fucking sequence of your genome to diagnose type 1 diabetes? The same exact things hold, genetic predispositions exist and are indicative to form hypotheses, but are not tested for since more easily accessible and informative diagnostic criteria exist.
Diabetes is still diagnosed by physical checks. Mental conditions aren't. Which is why it's ridiculously dubious to suppose that someone's mental state has a physical basis (genes) when really the events in their life could be a far bigger contributor.>no doctor will tell you this you fucking retard
AND YET THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT A DOCTOR TOLD ME, "hurr durr you have shit genes because someone in your family got depressed once". And then this doc was saying "my family has it too, my 14 year old kid has to take antidepressants".
And I thought, that kid doesn't HAVE to do fucking anything. We can resolve something like depression through LIVING YOUR LIFE BETTER, having the confidence to pursue your dreams, all of that.
The medicalisation of low feelings is UTTER CRAP, and morons like you support it. You really are a fucking retard.
