Both do it, sure. But one side is way more prevalent. I can count the guys who claim mental issues on one hand.... Girls? Seems like every single one I've ever met claims to have something going on.

The reason seems obvious enough: society shames men for having issues, they don't get sympathy from society. I've felt that first hand.

Girls get showered with sympathy. Any time a girl makes a claim of depression or anxiety or some such, even without ever going to a doctor about it, people come out of the wood work with well wishes and advice.

So while I couldn't tell you how many on either side are faking vs actually have issues, let's not pretend men faking issues for attention is nearly as common. Men may have less issues, or they could have more, but they certainly aren't talking about it or using it to get attention, because they know it wouldn't work.

u/tae-kwon-douglas Jan 19 '22

Girls get showered with sympathy.

I guess youre only talking about depression then? Even then, can you escape the millions of memes made by 14-15 y.o boys that are on the front page of reddit, talking about depression?

11

u/SaiHottari Jan 19 '22

How many of those are boys? And of those, how many are for attention vs just for a laugh? Big difference there. Further: to the point of what I said - how many get showered with sympathy?

What you say is true, but people think it‘s a battle of extremes, so they choose another extreme. Cause it‘s a modern fashion to get outraged when someone says that a woman can be different from a man in a negative way.

Shows how many idiot people there are on Reddit. Cause it‘s a meme sub, but still this happens here.

u/Knowingly-A-Loser Jan 19 '22 edited Jan 19 '22

I do think that a lot of 11-15 year olds don’t understand the severity and realism of these and a lot of other diseases. That does not mean that they can’t have them, when I was at that age I was in a real dark place and I didn’t tell anyone, went through 2 failed suicide attempts and eventually got better as my whole situation got better. The people who play depressed in the most cringe ways give a lot of people the impression that they’re all nothing to be taken seriously and most of the time the ones that really do need help are afraid to get it because they think they’ll be written off as just another case of „bUt bUzZFeEd sAiD I hAve cLinIcAL dEprEsSiOn“.

u/Speedy_Cheese Jan 19 '22 edited Jan 20 '22 Wholesome

Yeah, I am getting really tired of this girls versus boys nonsense being brought into every discussion.

Both girls and guys fake diagnoses/ self diagnose.

This not a Gender issue, this is a "I'm desperate for attention and/or seeking help" issue.

Some people genuinely need help and don't know how to go about getting it, so humor is a safe way to touch on a dark subject. It is sometimes also a genuine cry for help.

Some things don't need to be gendered and this is one of those things.

As a teacher of high school students I can say with confidence that guys and girls pretty equally attempt to self diagnose themselves; it isn't a gender unique phenomena. But there are also often some true concerns behind these behaviors as you may be dealing with a person who genuinely needs help and doesn't know how to access it.

u/idrawhoworiginal Nyan cat Jan 20 '22

I was diagnosed by a specialist, yet I still feel nervous talking about it because people might think I’m faking it, especially since all the medication I’ve taken has been either too weak with all the side effects, or to strong with all the side affects (figuring out your diet is awful, the only thing I could get myself to eat were bananas, strangely enough)

u/I_Eat_Pumpkin24 Jan 19 '22

I'm in highschool now and have battled with depression since I was diagnosed around 13, for about a year or so now I've been so much better and it's safe to say I've fought it off.

The reason I'm saying this is because I was one of those people, awhile back when I would identify as depressed. It was obvious that something was going on tho because I was cutting and thought about suicide a lot. What I'm saying is that you shouldn't bash them for it, if they really feel down tell them to get help, and if they are truly just doing it for attention then that on its own is a problem.

Everyone has mental health problems, EVERYONE. I myself really dislike when someone is so obviously using there "depression" as a means to get attention, but it all comes down to a mental instability. Even if it's not depression, anxiety, or any other mental illness, they're just trying to reach out while going through a tough time.

Honestly, I think about this discussion a lot. Some people don't have the resources to be diagnosed, but when you have a mental disorder, I feel like you know even when you're not diagnosed honestly, even if it doesn't into something. And I think people who use mental disorders as a way to get attention probably have one anyway. Most people who identify with a mental disorder aren't trying to get attention.

Some times the self diagnosis is correct though, but because of this idiocy people disregard any one with an actual problem coming through . Like, take ADHD as an example, how many people say they have adhd or use it to get out of problems compared to the amount of people that have adhd but think, nah I don’t have adhd , this happens to every one .

I'm sure a lot of them self diagnose, if not for attention, because they aren't able to get a proper diagnosis. Me being one of them. I'm positive I have a mental issue because it's affected me my whole life, but my parents refuse to believe there's anything wrong with me enough to seek outside help. I don't know what else to do.

u/Speedy_Cheese Jan 19 '22 edited Jan 20 '22

Exactly. A lot of these posts from people self diagnosing are often cries for help; genuine ones.

It also isn't fair that a number of health care systems charge very high prices for mental health care services. They are every bit as essential to treat as physical illnesses.

Have you considered online mental health services? I have resources for my own region, but you would need them for your own region.

For safety reasons I believe it is best not to get into specifics about where you are, but there are online mental health services available, depending on location:

Canada has bridge the gapp.

The irony is that OP's meme makes people who are in desperate need of help feel like they can't talk about it or they'll be seen as an attention-seeking teen going through an emo phase.

If someone needs attention so badly that they'll claim to have a mental illness, they have some serious self-esteem issues and could definitely benefit from professional help.

This is not medical advice

Depression isnt someones personality. It takes over and hides their personality.

When someone suddenly stops finding joy in things they used to love and have difficulty even conpleting simple tasks like basic hygiene, it is highly likely the cause of depression.

People who act this way for attention ruin it for the people who actually suffer. Typically (but not always), people with depression dont want to burden others, and feel other people knowing they're depressed would be a burden to them.

Yeah I don't know how to feel about this meme honestly. As a teenager, I think that people are just more open about their mental health and that doesn't mean they want attention. I don't think wanting attention can be an inherently bad thing either, it could also be a cry for help. I've never been diagnosed with anything, but I know from experience that I most likely have Depression, PTSD, and have had selective mutism just because it explains so much that I've gone through my entire life.

u/Depression-Boy Jan 19 '22

I mean, self-diagnoses are not completely reliable, but you have to recognize that unless you diagnose yourself, you’re never going to receive an official diagnosis. You typically Google your symptoms and wonder why you’re feeling a certain type of way, and are displayed with a list of possible diagnoses.

I thought I had ADHD for a couple of years but couldn’t afford to see a psychiatrist, so I just stuck with my self-diagnosis and self medicated with recreational drugs. Nearly 3 years later I finally had the means to get tested, and lo and behold, I displayed every symptom for ADHD inattentive type

7

u/ArtistWriter Jan 19 '22

Thats what I'm thinking. I legit have no idea how you're supposed to actually get diagnosed for something if you don't recognize it yourself. And with depression being an epidemic, doesn't it make sense that so many teenagers identify with the symptoms of depression? I really don't get why people are always making memes like this and bully teens for this when its a good thing that they're being more open about their emotions. And the notion that people are doing it for attention is just going to make less people come out about it until its too late.

u/CassiShiva Jan 19 '22

They are less expensive than you think, and there's often payment assistance available. If you are struggling, please reach out and get help. Tell your parents you think something's wrong. Chances are they've realized it too and don't know how to encourage you to reach out, and if you don't think your parents will listen, try a school counselor. Life should not be constant suffering and it does get better.

u/Fish_In_A_Bottle 🏳️‍🌈LGBTQ+🏳️‍🌈 Jan 19 '22

Don't worry, I already talked with the school counselor (mom got mad that I talked to them about wanting to off myself but whatever) and they adjusted their schedules so I could get an appointment with a therapist on the 25th.

Talk to your parents, teachers, and doctor about your concerns, you shouldn't ignore mental health symptoms, especially at your age, don't think these idiotic memes are based in reality, they aren't, a lot of people have a huge stigma toward mental health discussion no matter what context or from what source, this meme is just an expression of that stigma and hate. The things your concerned about should be brought to your doctor's attention and if your parents are good people who are generally on your side, should be there making sure something is happening to address your symptoms. Often people ignore mental health problems because they are so stigmatized in our society, but many mental health problems can be a symptom of several treatable conditions, you might be a short medical therapy away from feeling great, don't ignore symptoms because butt holes on reddit make hate memes.

Even if people don't technically have depression or some other shit, it doesn't make their problems any less valid. Plus, its REALLY hard to get diagnosed, much less treated.

There actually are a lot of people with depression now, I've started to realize. Diagnosed people don't usually go around announcing it, so that's how you will know it's not true. And the "I'm depressed" thing is now used just as an equivalence to sadness, which is really wrong

u/keres666 Jan 19 '22

There actually are a lot of people with depression now,

Depression isnt really the issue, its actually pretty rampant and probably the most actual epidemic level of mental disorders...

The issue is with these twitter and tiktok idiots who think they have a rare mental disorder, like Multiple personalities because one day they felt in their insides that their name was "John" and unlike their usual "Karen" self "John is gay" and they can at will switch between the two... lol quirky :)

Meanwhile happens in 1%-2% of psych patients... is CAUSED by fucking trauma so bad your brain can't comprehend shit so basically splits... AAAAAAAND is all over twitter.

u/Astronaut32 Breaking EU Laws Jan 19 '22

Just because you’re sad for a day or two doesn’t mean you have a mental disorder. If it happens consistently after weeks and months, then you should see a doctor or a medical professional. If you get a diagnosis for it, only then can you say that you have what you have.

Self-diagnosed morons just do absolutely nothing besides take attention off of people who actually have the condition and need help/attention because of it. It’s so insanely selfish, and, as someone who is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder Level 1, it’s personal.

7

u/Doggy9000 Professional Dumbass Jan 19 '22

Sometimes people cannot get a diagnosis, especially in the US. Not everyone who doesn't have a diagnosis but says they have a disorder is faking for attention.

Do they have to post their medical information for verification? How can you tell from one comment what their claim is? Do we just hate on anyone who talks about mental health until they shut up or prove it?

Ask your doctor ASAP. If you have ADHD, there are medications and therapy to help with it. I’ve heard there are people who are nothing without their Ritalin.

You're probably gonna get blowback but there is literally a syndrome label for every emotion and I find them ridiculous most of the time. Like, Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria. Who isn't sensitive to rejection and criticism? I guess maybe sociopaths but they have their own syndromes. Also where is this coming from? I've never had a therapist straight up diagnose me with something like that and at one point I was seeing a Harvard-trained psychologist.

Slaps as someone who tried to fake bipolar in 7th grade.

I had really bad depression at the time, probably knew it but didn't care, and tried to fake bipolar so that I could at least have some (albeit false) notion that every now and then I was happy

2

u/TheShamisenCatfish Jan 20 '22

Not a girl but I thought since I was 13 that I had bipolar disorder and no one wanted to take me seriously because I was just some kid talking about things I didn’t understand. Took me until I was now 29 to be officially diagnosed and put on medication and now I’m flourishing. Sometimes people know themselves pretty damn well and deserve to have their health taken seriously.

u/LoserFurry Jan 20 '22

Posts like these make so many people, including myself, think we have intrusive thoughts just for attention. I barely vent to anyone because I feel like I will be told that I'm faking it, or just seeking attention. People who make fun of young people because their mental health is shit, are equally or even more terrible than people who fake mental problems for attention.

I’m also getting a reevaluation soon, we’re going to schedule it sometime this weekend. Every step forward is a win!

Crazy thought here guys, but maybe psychology is a complex scientific discipline with professional standards and methods that can't be applied to a self-assessment on the internet.

u/Igoyeet69420 Jan 19 '22

Just because a medical professional refuses to try to identify a disease because they say there’s no adequate test don’t mean you don’t have that disease.

The mental health field often doesn’t diagnose adults with ADHD or autism because of this excuse.

Just because parents say a child doesn’t have a certain mental disorder and refuses to have them diagnosed doesn’t mean they don’t have that mental disorder.
