Ha... wuddup guys... I haven't written to this category in awhile so I wanted to share a little article I came across. Apparently doctors have turned selfies into an actual mental disorder called "selfitis
", if you can believe that haha.
The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has made three classifications for selfitis:
- Borderline Selfitis is when you take selfies of yourself at least 3 times a day, but don't post to social media
- Acute Selfitis is basically Borderline Selfitis but also posting the photos to social media
- Chronic Selfitis: Is when you lose your shit and can't stop yourself from taking photos all day long while posting to social media (more than 6 times a day)
Doesn't this sound kind of... made up to you? I guess I see the point they make. People who post selfies excessively do seem to have lower self esteem. Not that this makes you a bad person, or crazy, or anything. I personally encourage anyone with self esteem issues to not only post selfies but to start vlogging as well, as I think those things have helped me a bit. Then again, I'm not a doctor so taking my advice could potentially ruin your entire life.
By the way... what's the medical condition for people who know they're supposed
to be taking regular selfies for promotional purposes, but are so lazy that it only happens once every few months? Dipshit-itis? No one in particular *cough*
... just wondering.
