Random Thought: Co-Morbidity

I hate the term “co-morbidity”. I always have an image like this:

Me: “I have Asperger Syndrome.”
Other person: “Oh…Any co-morbid diagnosis?”
Me: “Yes, my bones come out of my skin at the bottom of my back. Sometimes it bleeds.”

For those who do not know, co-morbidity is when a person has two or more mental illnesses occurring at the same time. For example, you could have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and be Bipolar.
