guess my mental illness game

Genetic Vulnerability
(via my old blog, Whisper Pitch)

1. "One curious finding is that people diagnosed with _____________ are more likely to have been born in winter or spring."

2. "Negative emotion, paranoia and anhedonia are all considered to be core features."

3. "Replaying or rehearsing conversations out loud."

4. "Intense and excessive preoccupation with religion or spirituality."
(you know, most would be very disturbed by this gift)

5. "Smoke or have the desire to want to smoke." ...70-90% are smokers

I don't believe in mental illness, but I do believe in embracing narrative fictions.
(In popular culture the two are often confused)

The final push to the sum:
"Delusions that someone is in love with you when in reality they aren't."
