|No they don't do that.|

Quoting kthx.:" I think a lot of adults/children are being diagnosed with conditions or illnesses now. Wayyyy more than ... [snip!] ... others (which is totally fine, at least to me)... autism is the instant diagnoses. I really hate it. Doctors blanket SO much."
Quoting kthx.:" I think a lot of adults/children are being diagnosed with conditions or illnesses now. Wayyyy more than ... [snip!] ... others (which is totally fine, at least to me)... autism is the instant diagnoses. I really hate it. Doctors blanket SO much."No I understand that. My brother and cousin supposedly have it when their childhoods were spent being spoiled and playing video games and having minimal interaction. Not autism just no interaction causes these things and this diagnosis is of course increasing because of the larger number of kids who do nothing but watch tv and play video games all day.
Quoting Raindancer:" every person I have ever met who supposedly has it tells me they have it after a bad nights sleep or excessive exercise... I am calling bull smurf on that one."
Quoting GlowWormsMommy:" Not make stuff up but over diagnose"
Quoting snglemama:" !!!! my jaw dropped readong the OP. Fibromalgia is a real condition..and VERY painful. It's people ... [snip!] ... why your mom doens't work out... or.. maybe yoru sister works out because she thinks it helps to keep everything working well? "No it's not me making it hard then. It is the doctors that are overdiagnosing this smurf if it is real. They are gonna tell you that you have it because you are sore which is bull smurf. And no my mom has been plus size since she was a kid and the second I got a drivers license she sat down in her bed and never got back out, gained all the weight and is now this. My sister. I have lived with her my whole life, she is lazy, end of story.
Quoting Raindancer:" Yes we all have different doctors. The thing is that all of the symptoms you listed can be caused by ... [snip!] ... doing something about it) and my mother is morbidly overweight but apparently lying around is the way to do something about it."
Quoting Penises 3:Vaginas 1:" I see this and it makes me so upset. I see a lot of parents who DEMAND for the Dr to diagnose their ... [snip!] ... it and then medicated. Both are VERY real disorders, but I doubt as many people have them as have been diagnosed with them. "
Quoting Raindancer:" My sister is just lazy. Even when she feels good she doesn't tend to do anything but sit around all day. ... [snip!] ... poking me in places to see how I reacted to it. I am like you are jabbing your finger into my muscle.. yeah that is gonna hurt."
Quoting snglemama:" wow...you're an ignorant judgemental bitch. MANY medical conditions are exacerbated by overexertion ... [snip!] ... numb and pain again... yet...they both know it's important to work out... and still try their best to live healthy lifestyles."My mother doesn't work out. My sister doesn't work out that much. She does it when she feels like it and her work out is going to the store for an hour (which is what i was thinking of because that is the only exercise she gets) not to mention her diet consists of mac and cheese and spaghetti.
Quoting kthx.:" YES. YES. YES. Thank you for understanding ADHD is the same way. Like.... a kid can't just be ... [snip!] ... I hate that parents are so quick to need a diagnosis and medication for their children, who may not even have the disorder "
Quoting snglemama:" it's not your job to decide if she really has it. Maybe she doesn't.. but maybe she's in too much pain to work out?"Dude according to her she has scoliosis as well yet she has been to multiple doctors and they have done multiple xrays and MRIs and she doesn't yet she still tells everyone she has it.. She isn't in too much pain to work out. Smurf if she is in too much pain to do chores but not too much to go party with her friends there is something up there.
Quoting Penises 3:Vaginas 1:" They wanted me to medicate Gavin and I told them no. He takes medication for his seizures and to help ... [snip!] ... his seizures and to help his liver and that's it. He may be difficult to deal with some days, but medication isn't the answer. "
Quoting Raindancer:" Dude according to her she has scoliosis as well yet she has been to multiple doctors and they have done ... [snip!] ... out. Smurf if she is in too much pain to do chores but not too much to go party with her friends there is something up there."
Quoting annabelle509:" In order to be properly diagnosed it takes more than an hour lol. they have to first weed out numerous ... [snip!] ... things, one being lupus, which takes a blood test. so if your doc only does a one hour fibro test i would suggest another doc."I got another doc because it annoyed me that they would even suggest I have this and then try to put me on these massive pills for it. I don't need an addiction. My sister and mom just took it. They were like oh I have it and they took it and ran with it. Every since then it isn't push through it, it is I can't do it because I have fibro. My sister used to have no problem going out because she was sore from doing stupid smurf but every since then she uses that as an excuse not to do it.
