    Dammit, Orac, you just don’t like passive-aggressive chronically depressed people with ADHD enough to give them their own song, do you? I see how it is. You just don’t like them anymore.

    Ooh, shiny…

    I’m bipolar, and I’ve had problems with clinically-diagnosable paranoia in the past, and I enjoyed this post. Thanks!

    Shouldn’t the song for schizophrenia be “Do You Hear What I Hear in My Head?”

    Orac — Loved the play list! As someone diagnosed as chronically depressed, I don’t have a Christmas theme song to add. (“I’m dreaming of a black Christmas” seems too lame.) Having said that, I’ll just salute you with my Christmas coffee mug which reads, “Bah Humshit!”

    Shouldn’t that be Disassociate Identity Disorder? Don’t anger the APA or you won’t be on their Christmas card list…
