Is video game addiction a real mental health disorder

MarketwatchThe World Health Organization is in the process of finalizing the 11th update of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), a guide that describes different health problems and their symptoms. The latest draft version of the new ICD includes an entry for “gaming disorder,” which is essentially video-game addiction, as Forbes first reported.

The mental health organizations are happy to slap the disorder label on anything they think their members can get paid to fix, especially by parents desperate to produce functional children rather than special snowflakes.

Keep this in mind when evaluating whether "mental health experts" should be able to make decisions concerning your gun rights.
