A South African psychiatrist’s suggestion that Oscar Pistorius had generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) at the time he shot his girlfriend has sparked panic among others with the diagnosis. The South African Depression and Anxiety Group has received hundreds of calls from people concerned that having the disorder could lead to violent behavior. “We have had people asking if their loved ones with GAD need to be hospitalized immediately,” said the group’s director.
Thank you, psychiatry. Good job (again). Bunch of f*$%^&*ing morons.
