I HAVE MY DSM-V!

I HAVE IT NOW!!!!! My adorable brother bought it for me, and it was waiting on my bed when I came home. I’m such a dork and acted like a kid on Christmas morning. It’s just so shiny and beautiful. 

Even though we won’t be using it in school just yet, I’m totally perusing all the new modifications and changes with ridiculous excitement. 

PS: The DSM stands for Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (aka, the therapist’s bible). 

PPS: THERE ARE SO MANY EATING DISORDER CHANGES. 

PPS: I THINK THEY ARE ALL POSITIVE AND MUCH NEEDED, and I will post a more detailed and highly unprofessional opinion on them later.

PPPS: I can’t believe how much I freakishly dig this stuff. It’s insane. If I wasn’t in this field, I don’t know what I’d do with my life.

  1. I have heard so much negative feedback about the DSM-V that I am not at all running out to get my copy. However, I’m glad to hear you’re psyched about it and that it’s got important changes to the section on Eating Disorders. I’ll have to check it out (and THEN decide whether to buy it!). –Megan (PS–dorks are awesome!)

    • still browsing- I can definitely see why there are some major controversy and flaws. But, I think they definitely made some much-needed improvements for eating disorders. 🙂
