Today Show: Returning Soldier Surprises Daughter At Tampa Bay Rays Game
9-year-old Alayna Adams was selected to throw out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays/Boston Red Sox game, and got a big surprise while doing it. She got the opportunity primarily because her father has been stationed in Afghanistan as a lieutenant colonel for the last two years. After watching a video of him promising to come home soon, she threw the pitch…to her dad who was secretly playing as catcher. It took a second for her to realize who it was, but once she did, it was hard not to get choked up watching the heartwarming reunion.
Today Show: American Psychiatric Disorder Redefine Mental Disorders
The American Psychiatric Association made some big changes to its Diagnostic And Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder that are causing some controversy. In the first update in 19 years, the DSM-5 Task Force Chariman said that they are trying to more accurately describe mental disorders. Asperger’s is out and has been made part of the autism spectrum. Bereavement over a dead spouse can now be diagnosed as major depression. Hoarding and binge eating are now in as new disorders. Severe temper tantrums in kids is also part of the manual now as Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder.
Gail Saltz, a psychiatrist and associate professor at New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Sally Satel, psychiatrist and author of Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal Of Mindless Neuroscience, came on the show to comment of these big changes. Gail Saltz thought that we should care about this because it is an update, it will probably not change the way many psychiatrists practice, because they treat conditions and not diagnoses. Sally Satal said that parents with children suffering from Asperger’s need not worry, as they will still be treated in the same fashion, but under the Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Binge eating disorder will not be diagnosed for just anybody. Someone who eats a pint of ice cream once a week and doesn’t feel good about it probably won’t be diagnosed. However, for those that overeat in excess of once a week and feel bad about it, they might come in for treatment. Bereavement leaves both Gail and Sally a little concerned for doctors that might prescribe medicine to people who just lost a loved one when, really, they just need attention and care for a small period of time.
