mental disorderWonders would not cease to end. This oyinbo people sha…. They are the one that even started it o, Now that Nigerians or Africans as a whole has taken it over from them, they are now calling it a dis-order. They are just intimidated I think. I wish I could call names because I have a thousand and one friends who engage in this with all their power and might. but how many people I fit call, how many people go remain. Initially i thought that selfies are for ladies only but if una investigate well, na guys dey do am pass.

The American Psychiatric Association (APA) has confirmed officially that taking ‘selfies’ is a mental disturbance.

The disorder is called selfitis, and is defined as the obsessive compulsive desire to take photos of one’s self and post them on social media as a way to make up for the lack of self-esteem and to fill a gap in intimacy.

APA said there are three levels of the disorder:

Borderline selfitis : taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day but not posting them on social media

Acute selfitis: taking photos of one’s self at least three times a day and posting each of the photos on social media

Chronic selfitis: Uncontrollable urge to take photos of one’s self round the clock and posting the photos on social media more than six times a day

According to the APA, while there is currently no cure for the disorder, temporary treatment is available through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT ).

So which are you? I think i am a Borderline Selfitis. Yea am proud of it.

One Love!

Cos in most cases, individual’s involved end up reducing their self-confidence to the amount or quality of viewers’ validations {Likes and comments}. It can also be very addictive if not modestly watched. But like i said, “Excessive”
