Grief could soon be a “disorder” according to the new version of the DSM. Great, now more people can get drugs for trying to deal with more things that it won’t help for. That way the poor drug companies can get more cash & we can employ lots more ‘professionals’ to give them business. Forgive my sarcasm. It’s a scam. Note how thin that first DSM in the photo is. Wonder why it ‘grew’ so much…?

When does a broken heart become a diagnosis? In a bitter skirmish over the definition of depression, a new report contends that a proposed change to the diagnosis would characterize grieving as a disorder and greatly increase the number of people treated for it.  The criteria for depression are being reviewed by the American Psychiatric Association, which is finishing work on the fifth edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or D.S.M., the first since 1994. The manual is the standard reference for the field, shaping treatment and insurance decisions, and its revisions will affect the lives of millions of people for years to come.

For the emotional problem of evil – pain, death & suffering, see this post.

The best apologetic (defense) on this topic that I have yet come across by William Lane Craig (from Reasonable Faith). It is often not clear that the problem of evil (why a good & all-powerful God would allow evil to exist) contains some implicit assumptions. This discussion brings those assumptions into the open & illustrates the flaws in them. It also shows why, with the Christian world-view the existence of evil in the world is expected (to some degree).
