- Anxietiorexia Nervosa - Patient becomes so afraid that they throw up frequently enough to cause rapid weight loss.

Attention Deficit[edit | edit source]
Attention Asset Disorder - patient has LOTS of attention and willingly gives it to each and every event in succession. Has the ability to track NINE enemy spaceships at once. Blank stare is often confused with not knowing what's going on, when in fact language does not exist for such fantastic simultaneity.

Cat door tree dog god loose Mood Disorder[edit | edit source]

- Bipolar Disorder - Axis I - patient in line with the magnetic polarity of the Earth, which, as we know, switches frequently. Each reversal triggers a "manic" episode (see below) or a "depressive" episode (see above). Axis II - Patient has the uncontrollable urge to buy "Polar" spring water. Davani just doesn't cut it. BAWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

- Mania - first identified at Beatles concerts. Grants the patient SUPER powers to stay up for days at a time, paint the Sisteen chapel, sculpt Le Penseur, and paint the Mona Lisa. Rome, in fact, WAS built in a day by a rogue band of Bipolars and a very manic architect. Also, it is frequently overlooked that The Universe and everything in it was created in six days, which strikes most psychiatrists as particularly out-of-control Mania. And, of course, Oscar Wilde was manic (or drunk - see Alcoholism below) most of the time.
Thought Disorder[edit | edit source]
- Psychosis NOS - Any kind of blessed insight misunderstood by professionals as indication of delusion and hallucination.

Catholicism is contra-indicated.
- Schizophrenia - blessed with the vision of the other world, hears absolutely reliable voices except for those that talk about the knives.

Not to be confused with natural fear resulting from owing the wrong people money or signing up to be part of a c***l. Collectively, all thought disorders are referred to as "cabalistic". Not to be confused with "cannibalistic", whose groups don't last very long but not for lack of participation.

- Lycanthropy - in its modern form, unrelated to lunar cycles, more readily attributable to periodic excessive testosterone when near any being that will have sex with the afflicted.
- Machismo - variation of lycanthropy except the afflicted maintains high levels of male hormones and consequently acts like a "meat-head" (not to be confused with Red-Neck Disorder).

- Pissing Contest Disorder - related to Antler Envy. "Hose down the decks with testosterone." (Lost In Space).

- Non-God Complex - The desire to delete from one's mind all things irrational. There is no God and no mental illness. For a small ongoing fee, these will be erased from your mind in stages.
