Is it normal that people think everything is a mental illness?
It's annoying because when I was younger I used to use websites like this for advice and would get so many replies like "you have depression/anxiety/etc. you need to go to therapy". I believed them too. And doctors (at least in the US) are just as bad. I went to one around age 17 and literally just told him "I think I have OCD because (x, y and z reason)" and got diagnosed with no questions asked. Then I really did go to therapy and they told me "nothing is wrong" I just have "symptoms".
I know some people actually do need the help but I feel like some are deluded into thinking every abnormality is a mental illness, and now I don't know what really is.
