  • Ummm...no! Haven't you ever heard of having a chemical imbalance or a genetic disorder?


    I guess my children, having been born with autism are just plain selfish...making me have to work tirelessly to teach them?!


    And those with manic depression due to insufficient production of serotonin, are selfish too?



    OP--I hope you are never faced with having to intervene on behalf of another person's mental health needs...that person would be better off fending for themselves!  Sheesh!

  • All of them? Or just some of them? LOL!
    No. Do some of them use it to get away with unwise decisions? Sure. But your question isn't very fair. Do mental health issues = selfishness? LMAO!!! No. That's, well, ignorance at, sort of a high. I have mental health issues, and I'm not selfish. I am very concerned with others. Actually, the more I an involved with others, the better I feel.
    I sure hope you ask because someone told you that, and you are looking for confirmation that those with mental health issues are NOT selfish.
