    I honestly work with a mental health agency and have clients. My golden rule - and apart of my training - is to never diagnosis a person with a disability unless evidence-based data from a multitude of tests has been collected by a licensed professional. And I frankly get tired of that crap here of how these Keyboard Warriors come here and are suddenly “experts.” Not all disability diagnosis are accurate based on behavioral observations.

    Here’s a fun fact: about 70% of people who are diagnosed with Autism actually have brain seizures, not ASD. Because the test conducted was solely based on BEHAVIOR.

    A lot of people come on here very fragile and although people may feel like it's advice. It may not be perceived as that by the individual they are making comments about.
    Story time:
    During my first year of college, I had “spotty lights” blurring and darkening my vision randomly. I had no idea what they were. I went to a campus doctor (who were RN nurses with limited experience). A nurse diagnosed me with severe depression and actually convinced me that I was “going crazy.”

    I left to go home for two weeks and I was still having the problems. I see my family doctor... turned out I was having migraine attacks that was triggered by a reaction to birth control medication. No depression or evidence of me going to have a mental breakdown.

    I basically wasted two weeks away from school all because a campus “doctor” misdiagnosed me with a mental illness.


    Seriously, be careful HOW you give information here. And if you don’t have any medical or mental health training, you shouldn’t be commenting or diagnosing strangers on the internet. Just because you took a Psychology 101 course in community college or have a cousin with any disability from the DSM V doesn’t qualify you as an expert.

    From my own experience of OCD. I do feel like he exhibited signs of OCD. So shared that point.

    Again maybe I shouldn't have... I felt like people occusing him of being "controlling" was not right if he had OCD which to me it seemed he had.

    I have never said to any poster that they need to seek help and tried to diagnose them to be fair.

    Again I am learning to be more careful with how I phase things.

    As following that I've been told I may have some issues of my own that I need to seek help for.

    It's not nice as a poster on these forums for someone else to try and diagnose you.

    So I'm learning to be more careful.
    Yeah Jelly, one thing to remember when pointing fingers, your posting history can haunt you. I don’t know the context of the post cause it was deleted but yeah... you’re kinda everywhere with your thoughts lately.

    To the OPer are you referencing the trolls who post about working at hertz and being racist or inconsiderate posters. I think they’re night and day and looking at maews post there does seem to be more to this. I’m not one of them there diagnosing posters. I very often say it might be time to see someone and I don’t say that in a condescending or judgmental way but simply a this is beyond strangers ability to solve and if you are suffering from paranoia etc to this level, it could be a sign of something quite serious

    I will say something I admire about this site, many are very sensitive to any admittance to mental illness, although unfortunately sometimes to a persons detriment because instead of pushing them to seek professional assistance they’re kinda coddled and fed what they need to self soothe, which assists them in avoiding getting any real help.

    ETA - Ok caught up. Again I don’t know what the post said but like maew pointed out based on the OPers other post combined with this one, he may very well be suffering from something. Instead of clueing in on that this post seemed to take on a life of its own. Real shame.

    Bizzare it shouldn't have been deleted.

    I do stand by what I said. I don't think someone should try and diagnose a poster here. I can at least say I haven't don't that.

    I jumped the gun with the napkin guy. Which I hold my hands up for. I'm quick to admit when I am wrong.

    Just being on the receiving end of being told I may have OCD with my way of thinking and I should seek help. Was not comforting or even accurate to that I'm exhibiting in my life right.

    This whole thing has been an incredibly learning experience. Which is why I would never try and "diagnose" and actual poster or even an individual they are posting about.

    Guess I'll stop being everywhere with my thoughts and keep them to myself from now on.

    So really he needs to either be honest about his condition or seek help to control them so he doesn't exhibit them.
    He just had OCD.

    To the original poster's question about trolling - IMHO some people are just plain evil. Maybe it's narcissism, I don't know but I do believe some people are just plain evil.
