Choose one of the disorders listed below and present a paper from the point of view of someone who has this DSM-5 diagnosis. The paper should be one and a half to two (2) pages in length, typed, double-spaced using Normal Times New Roman size 12 font. I require a nominal length paper with the expectation that “all” your work will be meaningful. The first half page (approximately) should be a brief description of the disorder. Cutting and pasting a page of information to define the disorder is unacceptable. Use your own words as much as possible. The remainder of the paper should be an “autobiography” as if you had the disorder. The autobiography should be written in first person. In other words, what’s it like to be YOU with this disorder?
Provide a separate cover page with the title (Disorder) of your paper. Provide a final and separate page listing your resources (Resource page). Your resources need to be from a reputable source. Our text cannot be used as a resource. A five (5%) penalty will be assessed each for failure to submit a separate cover page and a separate resource page. Papers may be submitted earlier if you wish. Should you have one of the psychological disorders in real life, please choose another disorder for this project. In reality, this is also a research paper.
