The American Journal of Psychiatry offers an article that may turn your perception upside-down.
According to psychologists and psychiatrists excessive texting testifies the presence and development of mental illness.
So if you text, write e-mails too much during the day it’s high time to see a doctor.
To prove the negative side of obsessive texting and its ranking as a mental illness, psychiatrists name a number of symptoms to take into consideration:
- Excessive use that leads to neglect of other daily activities;
- The feeling of depression and stress once texting is withdrawn;
- Tolerance over texting;
- Social isolation.
The problem still requires a thorough study in order not only to determine if it’s a serious deviation, but to find out how it may be treated.
What would the world be like if, for example, Russian energy sources, the Ukrainian food industry and the German industry united to work together?
