I went in to see a Pyschiatrist today, and learned that my symptoms do not fit the signs of full blown PTSD. So the final diagnosis was Depression, not otherwise specified, and Anxiety, not otherwise specified. Aka, they couldn't label me with anything specific. So this got me to thinking. How often do we try to label people? How often to we attempt to identify someone with a label? I know all my life people have been trying to fit me in their little boxes, and been unsuccesful. But we all do it. I am guilty of it I am sure, even if I am not conciously aware of it. Just food for thought.
