    As someone with Major Depressive Disorder, anxiety disorders, and PTSD it’s been a struggle trying to hide everything. Going to work and trying to carry on as usual makes everything so much worse and my performance suffers. I’m currently suffering a depressive episode. Fir the first time I decided to be open with everyone including my boss about it. I’ve received nothing but love and support and it makes it much easier to cope with, not having to hide in the shadows behind a fake smile.

    As someone who has lived with two people who have had these habits it’s most definitely a disorder but I don’t think it’s something you can classify by itself. I believe it’s a symptom of a more definitive illness. Most likely social anxiety and disassociation. We’re not talking about kids that play video games we’re talking about full grown adults that refuse to eat anything they can’t microwave or order from delivery, to sleep or get a job so they can spend 19+ hours a day playing some form of video game. It is most definitely a form of a mental illness. They need to study more into the cause rather than giving it it’s own name.
