Overview

Hot on the heels of the wildly successful The Hypochondriac's Pocket Guide to Horrible Diseases You Probably Already Have comes The Paranoid's Pocket Guide to Mental Disorders You Can Just Feel Coming On, Dennis DiClaudio's hilarious look at fifty disturbingly familiar maladies you just know are buried deep in your psyche. This inspired new collection profiles the most nerve-wracking, harebrained, loopy, life-threatening and totally out-there mental disorders you could imagine--and some you could never imagine.

With complete descriptions of the symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis, prevention, and treatment for psychosis, this book could convince even the most rational readers that something--or someone--is out to get them. From the slightly odd Stendhal Syndrome (the fear of artwork) to the mentally debilitating Athazagagoraphobia (the feeling that you've forgotten something important) and the downright bizarre Windigo Psychosis (the belief that you are a wild and ravenous monster), The Paranoid's Pocket Guide to Mental Illnesses You Can Just Feel Coming On is a fascinating compendium of psychological illnesses for all of us to fret and agonize over.

    Hilarious!

    This book is amazing! Perfect for anyone working in the mental health field, social work, or just dealing with their crazy family and friends. I bought it for a friend (who's getting her PsyD) and now have to have my own copy (did I mention I'm a social worker?). Obviously, you shouldn't use this to diagnose yourself or anyone else.... But it's a hilarious starting point!
