When it comes to naming a new discovery, a person’s natural tendency is to name it after themselves, to get the fame, right? Well, not always. It seems as if when it comes to mental illness, psychologists tend to avoid associating themselves with a condition and find the naming inspiration from their childhood books. It’s true.
These conditions, complexes and syndromes here have names that have been taken from things you probably read or saw as a child, and it kinda bums me out a little. I mean, I always wanted to be Peter Pan, but not in this psychologically messed up way.
Think I need to return my library card.
