129. Is a Mental Health Diagnosis Necessary for my HSC?

As a society, we love to put labels on things.

Whether it’s labeling people as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ …

Labeling foods as ‘healthy’ or ‘unhealthy’ …

Or putting labels on kids who don’t conform exactly to what’s expected of them.

This comes up a lot in my private practice.

Parents come in because their kiddo has been displaying HSC-like behavior, and they think they need a diagnosis …

I can understand why getting a diagnosis might give parents some comfort.

After all, if you went to the doctor with unexplained stomach pain, you’d want them to give you a concrete reason for that, right?

You’d want a diagnosis.

But in HSCs, most of the time, a diagnosis has a negative impact on their self-esteem and on their future.
