New Disorder: Internet Use Disorder

 

 

 

Townsquare Media

Psychology professionals in Australia have come up with a new disorder: IUD, or Internet Use Disorder, will be included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders as a condition that is “recommended for further study.” Let’s take a look at the symptoms:

 

1. Excessive use, often associated with a loss of sense of time or a neglect of basic drives.

 

2. Withdrawal, including feelings of anger, tension, and/or depression when the computer is inaccessible.

 

3. Tolerance, including the need for better computer equipment, more software, or more hours of use.

 

4. Negative repercussions, including arguments, lying, poor achievement, social isolation and fatigue.

Do you exhibit any of the symptoms?
