Previously, the DSM-IV had reported that hoarding was comorbid with OCD, however, the DSM-V states that it is independent from negative, intrusive thoughts if one does not maintain an item. Hoarding disorder is also comorbid with medical conditions such as fibromyalgia, diabetes and obesity (Kress et al. 2014). It is inferred that compulsive hoarding is a result of significant trauma in a person’s life. Such trauma can include the death of a loved one, major decline in health and significant change in a person’s daily life.
Anorexia can cause many losses in a person 's life, but losing a baby because of the mental illness is one of the extremes. In Elena Vanishing, Elena loses her baby due to her anorexic lifestyle.

If anything, that stands in the way, like depression can make the person stuck in one of the steps to self-actualization. One of the biggest things that someone in the humanistic theory is that if a parent doesn’t not show the child their worth than the child will start to see themselves as worthless. They will start to develop a negative thought of themselves which then will cause depression and failure to live up to people’s standards, which is what my friend feels like. Before my friend admitted that she had depression she would go months with telling herself that she didn’t have depression and trying to avoid it with all costs. This is what humanistic theory also sees depression as.

A large topic in D. Spence’s (2010) review is that women are being over-diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome as a method of further oppressing women in the medical field. That is to say, D. Spence (2010) views the over-diagnosis “has made women anxious, paranoid, and unhappy and has undermined their sexuality” (p. 341). Women who have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian syndrome often feel like it is used as an excuse to ignore other problems further down the line. Hormone imbalances, weight problems, and depression are often all blamed on Polycystic ovarian syndrome once a woman has been diagnosed, regardless of whether it is the cause or not. It is in this way that the sexist medical practices perceived in modern practices oppress women, demeaning them and making their problems seem lesser than they are.
The degraded ability the victim has to "perform" in these different ranges of his/her life is the root cause of all these impacts. Thus a seriously depressed person will become morose, incommunicative, withdrawn, and unable to participate actively in what is going on. He will often become a "wet blanket", boring out whatever joy there might be in any occasion, and most will agree that they don 't enjoy having this person around. It, therefore, can become a rather heavy burden upon family and friends to have to compensate, on the one hand, for the loss of the "social ' ' contribution that would customarily be expected from the victim in the normal family setting, while at the same time making an extra input of care, encouragement, supervision, and listening to him/her. Dr. Edgardo Tolentino, the professional psychologist, states that “Not because somebody is suffering from some form of psychiatric problem, but they are not harmful.

You got to remember, times was different” (Skloot 276). This quote was talking about how Henrietta was faced with the possibility that she might die.

This feeling of isolation creates an obstacle of getting back involved in society and resuming personal life. Another common PTSD occurrence involves the patient experiencing flashbacks. During these flashbacks, it can overwhelm one’s sense of reality and make it seem the event is happening again for the first time, “Mimicking the real thing because it provokes a similar level of stress in the body” (Trauma Recovery). The aspect of the heart pounding and the preparation of muscles to react as they did at the time can have some patients believe it is occurring a second time, making any other symptoms worse. Emotional breakdowns are common after experiencing flashbacks and can lead to the patient having energy outbursts where it is hard for them to control themselves.
