ACHEWS, sorry I am allergic to happiness
Dysthymia is one of the mood disorders that I never did diagnose till I bought this book. It is so easy how this book make it:
"2 of these 6, with depressed mood, for 2 years sugnify dysthymia:
The dysthymic patient is "allergic" to happiness; hence, the mnemonic refers to a dysthymic patient's (misspelled) sneezes (achoos) on exposure to happiness".
Those were the few lines about dysthymia in this magnifisant book. I looked for the book to take a picture of it. I thought I may found it next to a nice thing so that the picture will be nice. I found it lying above other books turning his face away from them. "You are special!" I said to it.
