American Psychiatric Association makes it official: 'Selfie' a mental disorder

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has officially confirmed what many people thought all along: taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disorder.

The disorder is called selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.

According to this site, there are three levels of the disorder:

  • Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media
  • Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each of the photos on social media
  • Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self  round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than six times a day

The other good news is that CBT is covered under Obamacare.

          ITIS in medical terminology MEANS INFLAMMATION

          so how is selfitis a word? It's obviously FAKE MADE UP NEWS

          selfitis is not a word 

          it makes zero sense!

           

          that means self is inflamed with infection

           

          whose the idiot who wrote this? or made this up? YOU NEED A SLAP IN THE FACE WITH A WOODEN CHAIR

            Even if this article isn't a hoax, the medical terminology for this is "narcissism". Have you ever wanted to smack the crap out of someone who does those stupid duck faces or always has their tongue hanging out or big, nasty ass up in the air?
