AlmostGone834's picture

Interesting article (one of many out there) on the hottest new trend among Gen Z. Apparently it's now fashionable to diagnose yourself with any number of mental illnesses including (but not limited to): Autism, ADHD, Tourette's, BPD, Anxiety etc. based on what they're seeing on social media (notably TikTok) Why? Because it explains away any troubles they are having in their life (ie. No accountability) and it makes them "unique".
