“For example, according to the DSM-5, grief over the death of a loved one could qualify as major depressive disorder if it lasts more than two weeks and the bereaved person experiences such symptoms as loss of appetite and interest in daily activities, trouble sleeping and focusing, and feelings of worthlessness or despair.”
That is kind of sick to me, being extremely depressed after the death of a loved on or another traumatizing life event to me is a natural reaction… as natural as feeling physical pain when you get hurt. How else can your body experience the pain your soul is feeling.
I do not think that mental health disorders should be stigmatized but should ordinary human emotion be systematically defined as not normal, a thing to be treated…
